Get ready for the next soundtrack to your summer, as Rihanna only confirmed that brand-new music is on the way!
The Work vocalist finally addressed all of the gues around her forthcoming studio book in an interview with T: The NYTimes Style Magazine published on Sunday.
In candid exchange, the songstress opened up at length about her upcoming high-end mode front called Fenty , with LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton , the world’s largest indulgence group.
But naturally, fans were all ears when the conversation shifted to the rumors of a new reggae album in the works.
When requested flat out if the rumor was true, the 31 -year-old simply replied, “yeah.”
This is a far nicer reply than one a love received from pestering the Fenty Beauty proprietor for brand-new music at a make up event late last year, LOLz … but back to the interview!
The multi-hyphenate artist continued, discover she’s working hard on her next job, though it still doesn’t have an exact release date yet( womp !). Rihanna lent she might already have a name for it though, as representatives of her Navy fanbase can’t seem to let go of one entitle including with regard to 😛 TAGEND
” So far it’s simply been R9, thanks to the Navy. I’m about to call it that probably, ’cause they have haunted me with this’ R9, R9, when is R9 coming out ?’ How will I abide another identify after that’s been burned into my skull ?”
Rih went on to debunk a few other rumors swimming around the Internet that hinted at a possible collaboration with Mother Monster herself, Lady GaGa .
When asked how that hypothesi came up in the first place, she replied 😛 TAGEND
” Maybe because she followed me on Instagram . It’s not in the books right now, but I’m not against it .”
Ahh! Did you catch that last part, Perezcious readers?
Not against it doesn’t sound like much of an enthusiastic refute … but it’s also not a straight up” no, never” either! Considering the island vibe she’s going for, it realise appreciation why Gaga would be absent from this particular project.
But would you be down for a track with these two, knock-out female flairs in the future? We certainly would!
On that memo though, the charm business mogul did let us know there’s one artist we shouldn’t expect to hear on R9 : Drake .
The ANTI vocalist made very clear she won’t be hopping on a trail with her ex anytime soon, adding 😛 TAGEND
” Not anytime soon, I don’t see it happening. Not on this album, that’s for certain .”
We can’t say we’re surprised there!
But severely, between dominant the fad and elegance industries AND generating new music for the masses, the woman is booked, busy, and living her best life. Go girl!
Thoughts, Perezcious readers? “Are you doin ” evoked for brand-new music from Rihanna? Intrigued by the reggae vibes or longing for those old chart-topping pop reaches?
