Rihanna promises her upcoming album will be "worth the wait"
Rihanna has revealed that she is always working on new music and promises her new album will be "worth the wait".
The global superstar was only 17 years old when she dropped her debut album, Music of the Sun. Since then, she has churned out hit after hit over the last decade and a half.
Rihanna 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."
The 32-year-old singer has also found success as an actress and with her cosmetics range Fenty Beauty but she insisted that whatever she's working on has to be something she truly believes in.
She told new! magazine: "For me, it's about achieving excellence. That's why 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."
The Ocean's 8 star is keen to do more acting, too.
She said: "I'm still relatively new to acting but already I've got to work with acting royalty like Sandra Bullock. If I get the right offer then I would love to do more, for sure."
And while the Barbadian singer-songwriter, actress, philanthropist, entrepreneur and style icon is a big fan of reality TV, she doesn't think she'd get the time to be involved and be a judge on a show such as The X Factor or The Voice.
The global superstar said: "I love to watch reality TV. As for being a judge, it's not something I'm thinking about right now as it's such a big commitment, but never say never."
Rihanna last released her critically acclaimed LP, Anti, in 2016. The lead single, 'Work (feat. Drake)', became the pair’s second No. 1 single together and spent nine weeks at No. 1 on the Hot 100, while Anti went on to also spawn the top 10 hits 'Love on the Brain' (No. 5 peak) and 'Needed Me' (No. 7 peak).
