Superstar Rihanna on release of ninth studio album
Rihanna doesn’t know when her next album will be released.
The 31-year-old singer has been keeping fans waiting for her ninth studio album since the release of Anti in 2016, and has said she’s still working on recording the new material, so doesn’t have a release date in mind yet.
When asked how much longer fans would have to wait, she said: “I wish I knew. I have blocked off a solid period of time for the studio next month.”
The superstar said it “sucks” that she can’t just put her new music out into the world, but insists she doesn’t want to “rush” the material.
She added: “It really does suck that it can’t just come out, because I’m working on a really fun one right now. I’m really happy with a lot of the material we have so far, but I am not going to put it out until it’s complete.
It makes no sense to rush it, but I want it out. I’ve gotten to the point where I’m like, “Even if I don’t have the time to shoot videos, I’m going to put an album out.’”
Rihanna also admits her business empire is partly to blame for the lengthy time between records now, as she’s having to divide her energy between her music career, as well as her fashion and beauty lines.
