The post comes just one week after Rihanna confirmed that a new album was on its way in the new year.
In September, Rihanna finally addressed where R9, as she’s referring to the forthcoming album, falls in her ever-growing list of creative priorities, including acting, her makeup company, Fenty, and charity work.
In response to a fan who asked, “where is the m.u.s.i.c. ???” on Instagram, she commented back, “I know I know sis. I’m doing music. Simultaneously doing lingerie, makeup, film, amongst a couple other things that I enjoy. when the music is ready, you won’t have to ask for it. But it’s coming. Just not today sis. I’m hype too tho, it can’t come soon enough for me.”
And in April, when an Instagram follower asked for “MUSIC” instead of lingerie — she recently showed off her Savage x Fenty collection at New York Fashion Week — Rihanna responded, “She coming sis!”
