Fans hoping for a new Rihanna album over the holidays found a proverbial lump of coal under their trees this Christmas. For, the 26-year-old is still working on the as yet untitled set, which supporters have codenamed ‘#R8′. Or perhaps more accurately ‘R Late’.
Delayed in earnest, some industry sources have suggested that the project may be subject to extra internal pressure due to the success rival Beyonce enjoyed with her self-titled visual LP.
Whatever the case, Ms. Fenty isn’t letting the slow-going or dwindling interest dent her drive. Because after celebrating the festive season with friends and family in her native Barbados, the star hit a studio in the region to re-commence recording of the record.
Peep a snap from the session above.
Are you still excited?
