Despite Rihanna having launched a high end fashion line, a shoe collaboration with coveted designer Amina Muaddi, new makeup, a whole skincare line, and more, there happens to be one thing we haven’t been able to get our hands on just yet – and that’s her music!
Fans (and us) have been waiting impatiently for the entrepreneur and award winning artist to release some new music since the release of her last studio album, “Anti” in 2016.
However, we may not have to wait much longer as the “Umbrella” and “Run This Town” hit-maker told Now! about her forthcoming album, explaining that she has been creating new music and material, but won’t release anything until she is 100% happy with it, as she said, “I’m always working on new music. Just because I haven’t released an album in a few years doesn’t mean I haven’t been working on it. I’m not just going to put music out because people are craving it. I’m going to make it worth the wait – and it will be worth the wait.”
Fans have dubbed the pending album, “R9,” but it is yet to be revealed what it will be called!
The multiple Grammy award winner has been hard at work on several business ventures since her last album release and attributes her success to “achieving excellence” and not doing anything half-heartedly. She told Now!, “I will never put an album out for the sake of it or do a movie for the sake of it or a fashion collaboration for the sake of it. I have to believe in it.”
With so much belief in what she is consistently creating and releasing – it seems that Ms. Fenty never puts a foot wrong when it comes to being a savvy businesswoman. In the past couple of years we’ve seen her launch Fenty clothing, Fenty Beauty, and most recently, Fenty Skin.
