RIHANNA: First Details on *R9*

Written by on May 21, 2019

Rihanna fans starving for new music now at least have an idea what’s going to be on the menu.

Rihanna told the New York Times T Magazine that she’s working on a reggae album. She doesn’t have a release date in mind yet, but she’s thinking about an album title inspired by the Rihanna Navy — R9. That’s the shorthand superfans have used when wondering when RiRi’s ninth studio album would emerge. 

She spoke on potential collaborators, saying that while she has not cut a track with Lady Gaga, it’s still a possibility. But she has definitely ruled out any Drake collaboration for the next album.

She also seems open to putting together a greatest hits collection. “I’m sure if I put all my favorite songs together, it would be a really sick album.”
