It looks like Rih is back with something new…from the studio this time.
The long wait is finally over for Riri stans—her highly-anticipated (and highly memed about) upcoming album has been confirmed for release this 2020. After four years, Rih has blessed us with a Valentine’s day treat: A sneak peek on her latest music-related project.
Rihanna posted an IG story of a soundboard with the caption “gang. back in the STU.” Upon viewing this story, two immediate reactions: “Ohmygod Rih has new music” and “Ohmygod Rih has new music with The Neptunes.” As happy as we’ve been with her other big projects from film to beauty to creative collabs, “ANTI” left a void in our Riri-shaped hearts that can only be filled by a new album.
Original speculations said that Ri’s next album will be reggae-infused, in respect to her Jamaican roots. This could still be the case, but for now, all we know for sure is that a Rihanna x Pharell collab is in the works and we are ready to see Rih’s post-Fenty music.
