After being declared a national hero during Barbados' ceremony for becoming a republic, Rihanna has told paparazzi that new music is on the way.

In a new clip circulating online, Rihanna can be seen exiting a car with one paparazzi asking, "Any new music? Anything?" As she's walking away, Rihanna says, "Soon soon soon."

Last month Rihanna announced a limited edition vinyl reissue of all her eight albums, dubbed as the "Rih-issue".
