After taking a hiatus from music to focus on fashion and beauty projects, Rihanna finally seems ready to jump onto the music scene. Fans are eagerly awaiting their next album, and news of its impending release fuels excitement and anticipation.
Rihanna has consistently experimented with various genres and styles of pop music throughout her career, pushing the envelope. Numerous awards and accolades have been bestowed upon her for her distinctive fusion of pop, reggae, and R&B, and her dynamic performances have enthralled audiences all over the world.
The release of her ninth album is no exception, with Rihanna teasing that it showcases a new sound and direction.
“I feel like I have no boundaries. I’ve done everything – I’ve done all the hits, I’ve tried every genre – now I’m just, I’m wide open,” she explained in an interview with Entertainment Tonight.
Details about the album have yet to be revealed, but Rihanna has revealed that she worked with various artists and producers to create the ultimate album. In fact, she’s hinted at a possible collaboration with her fellow music superstar, Adele.
Fans are awaiting Rihanna’s return to the music scene with great anticipation, which is understandable given her stellar resume. Her upcoming album is anticipated to be a testament to her unwavering talent and dedication. Her bold, unapologetic approach to both music and life has made her a role model for millions of people worldwide.

Make Music and Videos
As Rihanna puts it, “I just want to have fun. I just want to make music and make videos.” And with her upcoming album, it’s clear that she’s ready to do just that – and we can’t wait to press play.
“I say that because in the moment, I didn’t realize it. But it always felt like the most cohesive album I’ve ever made,” she elaborated.
“When you break it down and you realize this album goes from ‘Work’ to ‘Kiss It Better’ to ‘Needed Me’ to ‘Love on the Brain’ to ‘Sex with Me’ to ‘Desperado’ … and somehow it all fits and not for a second did you glitch?”
This circumstance left a strong imprint that Rihanna remained unshakable. According to sources, the artist has produced a fair amount of content over the past few years. Nevertheless, their commitment to surpassing “anti” achievements has prevented them from releasing any further albums.
“There’s this pressure that I put on myself. That if it’s not better than that then it is not even worth it,” she stated.
“It’s not the right way to look at music, because music is an outlet and a space to create, and you can create whatever. It doesn’t have to even be on any scale. It just has to be something that feels good. It could just be a song that I like. It literally could be that simple.”
Toxic Mindset is Thrown Out the Window
After years of delay and anticipation, Rihanna has recently spoken out about her upcoming album release. In an interview, the singer admitted that she’s been struggling with a “toxic” mindset that has prevented her from releasing new music. However, she’s now attempting to break free from this mindset to finally bring her fans a new album that both they and she can enjoy.
“I realized that if I keep waiting until this feels right and perfect and better, maybe it’s going to keep taking forever and maybe it’ll never come out and no, I’m not down to that,” she stated. “So I want to play. And by play, I mean I have my ideas in my head, but I can’t say them out loud yet.”
While Rihanna has expressed her desire to release her new album soon, it’s worth noting that her comments were made before she announced that she and A$AP Rocky were expecting their second child together. As such, it remains unclear if the baby’s due date will impact the album’s release date.
Rihanna is a force to be reckoned with in the entertainment industry. She has become a household name for her music, acting, and fashion endeavors. She has not only taken the world by storm with her hit songs but has also launched herself in the fashion world. Her impact on popular culture has been immense, and she continues to push boundaries in all aspects of her career.
