VERY IMPORTANT NEWS for everyone who is desperately wondering when Rihanna will release new music (so…the whole internet?): It. Is. Coming. Rihanna teased her upcoming album ahead of the taping for Savage X Fenty Show Vol. 3, telling the AP that she’s taking her time in order to experiment.

“You’re not going to expect what you hear. Just put that in your mind,” she said. “Whatever you know of Rihanna is not going to be what you hear. I’m really experimenting. Music is like fashion. You should be able to play. I should be able to wear whatever I want. I treat music the same way. So I’m having fun and it’s going to be completely different.”

Rihanna released her last album, Anti, five years ago, and fans have been clamoring for more. Back in October 2020, she told the AP that she was working on music, saying she asks herself questions like, “What do I feel personally? What do I want to put out, and as an artist, how do I want to play it with my art? How do I want to interpret that? How do I want to reimagine it because it’s been so structured before.”

She also added, “You do pop, you did this genre, you do that, you do radio, but now it’s just like, what makes me happy? I just want to have fun with music. Everything is so heavy. The world that we live in is a lot. It’s overwhelming every single day. And with the music, I’m using that as my outlet.”

Literally cannot wait. Also, reminder to stream Savage X Fenty Show Vol. 3 Friday on Amazon Prime!
