Rihanna Expected to Release New Album This Year
Rihanna is expected to release a new album this year. After much speculation, the 33-year-old superstar delighted fans recently by confirming that she and A$AP Rocky are expecting their first child together, and she also looks set to drop a surprise record dedicated to her fans in the coming months.
Earlier this month, Rihanna reassured fans that new music is coming, insisting becoming a parent won't stop her from releasing her long-awaited follow-up to 2016's Anti.
She said at the time: "Well, yes … You're still going to get music from me."
When jokingly asked if she will drop some lullabies, Rihanna replied: "Oh my goodness, not a lullaby. My fans would kill me that they waited this long for a lullaby!"
In December, the Barbados-born "Talk That Talk" singer and business mogul promised that new music is coming "soon, soon, soon".
In an exchange with a paparazzi, who asked: "Any new music? Anything?", she replied: "Soon, soon, soon."
Rihanna previously promised that her new album will be "worth the wait", while she has teased that fans can expect a "completely different sound".
The "Rude Boy" hitmaker insisted that she is "always" working on her music and despite fans' pleas for her to share her latest material, she wants to wait until she's completely satisfied.
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.
Rihanna previously said: "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."
