Rihanna's Album Is Reportedly Done and Fans Are Freaking Out
That the album took so long is no surprise, given the sheer scope of the project. Unnamed insiders who spoke to Rolling Stone said that hundreds of songs were considered for the album.
“[Rihanna’s team] have, no lie, 500 records for this project [from] different producers and writers,” a dancehall producer told the magazine. “They’re only choosing 10 records. They’ve been having writing camps and trying to keep them quiet for almost a year and a half now. I’ve been flying to Miami, flying to L.A., cutting records nonstop for this project.”
According to Us Weekly, Rihanna recently wrapped up recording her ninth studio album. The singer's upcoming project will be her follow-up to Anti which dropped in 2016. RihRih recently celebrated the album's third anniversary this week. In late December, Rihanna said that the project would arrive at some point in 2019. Hopefully, it arrives in the spring and RihRih blesses us with a soundtrack for the summer.
