Breathe easy, and maybe prepare yourself for disappointment, as Rihanna does not have a release date for album number 9 as yet. But once you get over the disappointment, we’d let you know why the reigning queen of music is taking so long to release her next album.
In a chat with Sarah Paulson, who also happens to be RiRi’s Ocean’s 8 co-stars, the singer finally addressed the demand for a new album and promised that it will be a fun one. And more importantly, she does not want to rush the production, no matter what it takes.
“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.”
Alright, we hear from you! Because Rihanna also revealed how hard it is for her to juggle it all at once, as she manages a top-notch beauty brand, lingerie company, and recently launched a luxury label. Makes sense, right?
“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.’ I have blocked off a solid period of time for the studio next month.”
YASSS. So, it looks like we might get to hear some new tunes from RiRi soon enough. And if you’re still wondering why it took years for the new music to come out, the singer has an answer for that too.
“I used to be in the studio, only the studio, for three months straight, and an album would come out. Now, it’s like a carousel. I do fashion one day, lingerie the next, beauty the next, then music the next. It’s like having a bunch of kids and you need to take care of them all.”
Only a badass woman like Rihanna would be able to manage it all and still remain so flawless. Meanwhile, we will be anxiously waiting for the new music. What about you?
