Rihanna has spoken about her long-awaited ninth album, revealing she's been "very aggressively working on music".
It's been over four years since Rihanna's last album ANTI. Just last week she made her comeback as a featured artist on PARTYNEXTDOOR's "Believe It", and now fans are even more eager for an update on her ninth album.
In a new interview with Vogue, Rihanna does share a bit of an update, revealing that she "can’t say when I’m going to drop" the album, and adds that she is "very aggressively working on music".
Rihanna hasn't given much away about her ninth album - back in October 2019 she told Vogue that she likes to think of it as "a reggae-inspired or reggae-infused album". In her new interview, she reiterates that the reggae style "is happening".
She also emphasises that she doesn't want to be put into a box regarding genres, "I don’t want my albums to feel like themes. There are no rules. There’s no format. There’s just good music, and if I feel it, I’m putting it out."
Rihanna adds, "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. I can make anything that I want."
