Rihanna fans rejoice amid reports she is set to release new music for the first time in FIVE YEARS… as it is said the project is ‘tightly under wraps’.
The Desperado singer’s last album was ANTI, released in 2016, and since then her ‘Rihanna Navy’ have been reading into everything she posts in the hopes that it may tip them off to a musical release.
A new report said that her ninth album – which has been dubbed by fans as ‘R9’ – has finally come together.
The Barbados born artist, 33, has continued to string her fans along for a few years now, sharing in 2020 that she was ‘aggressively’ working on new music, before coyly teasing it would be coming ‘soon’ in March.
An inside source said, ‘The project is still tightly under wraps but Rihanna will be filming a new music video in Los Angeles in July. ‘Additional details about the music video shoot were revealed with the source saying that she has already picked a director by the name of Raja Virdi.
The duo have worked together on a few occasions and Virdi has become somewhat of her go-to videographer, filming everything from promotional videos for her photography book (The Rihanna Book) to various appearances and projects under her Fenty Corporation.
