Bad gal Rih has really been holding out on us.
No one can blame her though. She’s busier than ever making inclusive makeup and lingerie lines. On top of that, she’s been proving her bad bitch status to everyone for years. That’s a lotta hard work.
Still, she knows we can’t put “ANTI” on loop forever (we have tried!). That’s why she’s working hard on “R9”—for real this time.
Her latest interview with The Associated Press revealed she’s been working mad hard on her upcoming album. Yes, she has fed us with her recent Savage x Fenty show but the grind doesn’t stop for bad gals like Rih-Rih.
And it looks like the artistic direction of “R9” will be completely on her terms. Honestly, we wouldn’t have it any other way. “What do I feel personally? What do I want to put out, and as an artist, how do I want to play it with my art? How do I want to interpret that?” says Rihanna.
She reveals in the interview that “R9” is most definitely in the works. However, it may mean it’ll take some time to drop. Just like us, we’re drained from the new normal’s drama conflama. “Everything is so heavy. The world that we live in is a lot. It’s overwhelming every single day. And with the music, I’m using that as my outlet.”
“R9” might take a little more time. Still, she assures us one thing: “I’m gonna get it done.”
