Earlier last week, Rihanna confirmed rumors that her new album will be releasing in 2019 after she answered a fan’s question via Instagram.
Deciding to tease her fans on the long-awaited follow-up to ANTI, Riri took to her IG Stories to post a clip of her blowing kisses to the camera holding a stack of cash. “Where the album?’” she captioned the image. “Me: sorry my connection poor.” The new project will mark Rihanna’s ninth studio album and her first since 2016’s ANTI. Her vocal producer, Kuk Harrell, also teased in a live Instagram video that her forthcoming album “is amazing. It’s incredible, and that’s all I’m going to say.” Riri also announced earlier this year, she was back in the studio. “When the music is ready, you won’t have to ask for it. But it’s coming.” Check out the post below.
