Rihanna On New Album “It’s Not Done” / Blames Kanye West

Published: Thursday 17th Sep 2015 by Sam
rihanna-r8-2-thatgrapejuice

As muddy messes go, few can rival the all-round ridiculousness of Rihanna‘s eighth album roll-out.

Despite being a part-time singer, but a full time model, the star is – for some strange reason – pursuing the lane of an artiste.

A path, unsurprisingly, that is leading her and the project down a hole some say she’ll struggle to climb out of.

Parallel to the disaster, though, has been a candle of hope from fans that the 27-year-old is cooking up a master-plan of sorts that will reveal itself in a mere moment. “Rihvember” they’ve tirelessly taken to Twitter to chant.

And yet, in the new issue of NME, the Bajan beauty has not only revealed that the project isn’t near completion, she cites Kanye West as one of the causes.

The tea is poured below…

Speaking to editor Peter Robinson, Rih says of the LP:

“It’s not done.

To me it’s never done until it’s done. Until the final moment.”

And just so it’s hammered home that she wasn’t being elusive for elusive sake, she alludes to the fact that Kanye’s executive producer position is one of the causes for the hold-up:

“Now we [Kanye and I] just have to wait to get back in the studio together. His schedule and mine are totally opposite right now, but I think this month we’ll be back in the studio.”

As for the material she’s worked on thus far, she explained:

“I have so many songs I love – and they’re so different – that it’s hard to actually put them all on the same album.”

**********

It’s official. ‘R8’ is an undeniable disaster.

And the saddest part of the whole episode is that it never ever had to be.

As the legendary career of Whitney Houston showed (don’t judge us just yet for the comparison), it’s not every singer’s calling to mould their music.

Now, granted Rih’s voice couldn’t hold a candle to Whitney’s, there’s a commonality in that letting others take the helm of their music and imagery is something that has almost always worked for them both.

Notice how it’s when Ms. Fenty attempts to steer the ship herself (ten years into her career we must add) that chaos ensues – as well as so-so singles with so-so chart placements to match. Choosing to add Kanye into the mix re-affirms just how out of touch with her own product the Westbury Road “label head” is.

At this rate, she’s better off striking ‘R8’ from everyone’s release schedule and pressing on to “R9” with the usual suspects to help bake the hits she clearly hasn’t learned the recipes for herself.

Oh and of course, cart out the compulsory new wig.

    LOL

    • You tried September 17, 2015

      Spill your own Tea Rih! Lol waiting on someone else to get into studio when artist are on the road at home studios putting their ideas on a track and sending it to the other artists writers and producers while she has to sit around and wait for the creators to CREATE because she has know creativity (THAT SHE HAS DESCOVERED JUST YET) on her own

    • LEIA September 17, 2015

      The record-buying pubic went to her last tour expecting to see the gloss she produces in the videos;

      What they got was a tonedeaf off beat performer void of any talent.

    • Lotus September 17, 2015

      Beyonce’s career hasn’t done much since she claimed control of her music. BEYONCÉ is Beyonce’s least memorable album. Sure, it came out with an unexpected bang but be honest, it underperformed for a star of her magnitude. She really needs to consider rehiring her father. Keep the marketing team, they’re brilliant, but she’s gonna need some good material if she wants it to perform well. It’s sad to say, but her next album is gonna result in a career suicide because she literally ran out of ideas. And I’m Beyonce’s biggest fan, which is why I’m keeping it real. You don’t go from classics like Crazy In Love and Irreplacble to trivial bs like 7/11 and Yonce. That music was so beneath her. Her voice is too beautiful… her star quality is too bright! Call pappy Bey!

      • Bets September 18, 2015

        I agree 100% CALL PAPPY! Save your career and yourself!

    • Marc September 17, 2015

      PLEASE PLEASE “DON’T ” put WHITNEY’S NAME in the same mouth with RIHANNA!!!!! THAT is INSULTING AND DEGRADING!!!! Whitney had “TALENT!!!!

  2. BeyIsKing September 17, 2015

    Sam do you really have to write your articles like that though? Where is the ‘journalistic integrity’…damn so unprofessional so many unnecessary insults

    • bash September 17, 2015

      His blog…his opinions I guess…

      • Carey Like Mariah September 17, 2015

        I love you Sam! You are so shady and it’s so entertaining. Let the haters seethe–you just keep it real. R**** is talentless and everyone knows it but only a few are bold enough to say it.

        If I’m ever in UK we might have to link up. ????

      • toohotfortv September 17, 2015

        Your point would’ve hit home a little better if you had not went into the Rihanna hate… and furthermore, the idea that sam has continued to go at Rihanna for all these years, at this point, seems kind of pathetic. Granted, I get a quick chuckle every once in a while but, overall you look real silly.its like a scorned lover who can’t stop talking about or plotting revenge on an ex from 5 years ago… like damn, move on bih! SHE AIN’T THINKING ABOUT YOU!

      • ronit510 September 17, 2015

        He hates Rihanna! I’m not surprised. One of the main reasons i stopped coming to the blog as often. so unprofessional.

    • Navy Gravy September 17, 2015

      I don’t understand why he thinks his Commentary on Rihanna’s career is necessary. Like girl, you ain’t a label head, you don’t work in PR, publicity, image consulting, marketing or branding, you’re hardly a credible journalist. Stop acting like you have any idea what you’re talking about.

  3. gilbert September 17, 2015

    BYE RIHANNA! Nobody’s checking for #L8

    • al September 17, 2015

      Whitney and Rihanna in the same sentence Sam been smoking too much cockk

  4. BeyIsKing September 17, 2015

    With that said Rih’s first mistake was trying to divert from her usual microwave pop self…girl stick to what you know

  5. JJFan1814 September 17, 2015

    Rihanna never had an official date for this album . Is it long over due? Yes. But has it ever been delayed? NO! Get it together TGJ.

    • COLE September 17, 2015

      I Miss You!!!

      I remember you sed to coent on this page YEARS ago… Where have yo gys all gone too?

      Exactly. They’re acting as if this alb was confired for a particlar date and hasn’t seen the light of day since.

      Ridiculouus.

      • Career Ender September 17, 2015

        this b**** JJFAN1814’s real name is Ajaja …this means he stays at some poor African country
        .
        so he spends most the time herding goats and chickens and fetching water at the well 25km from his villahe hut

      • Shady81 September 17, 2015

        Career Ender where did you find a name like that? LMFAO.

      • Shady81 September 17, 2015

        @career ender I mean the name Ajaja.

        his Gmail address once popped up my TGJ account details while I was still using a blackberry and his name was “AJAJA”

  6. Truth September 17, 2015

    It’s like the Gaga incident all over again but with Rihanna. She should just release the album, flop and try again next year.

    • Paulo September 17, 2015

      actually most of ARTPOP been sitting on the vaults since before her hip accident. so it’s the opposite…

  7. christinastherealtalent September 17, 2015

    People moved on to Taylor. It’s the harsh reality.

    • Truth September 17, 2015

      And the fashion world moved on to Beyonce.

  8. Arianator Barb September 17, 2015

    That wiglet looks a hot mess

  9. What now September 17, 2015

    Sam is so stupid. He’s just pulling all strings 2 get a few dollars so hiz dl verse top bf can take him out n public n the day time. F*** off Sam. Accept ur site iz declining, not Rihanna.

    • Who gonna check me boo? September 17, 2015

      Why so mad??? Rlate frustration much

    • Truth September 17, 2015

      Funny how you say it’s declining, yet you’re here religiously. Guess you’re going down with the Titanic.

        GOOD @Whatnow! bye sis/bro!

  10. COLE September 17, 2015

    Once again…

    Another biased thesis on this album that Rihanna NEVER announced a release date too in the first place. Personally speaking, I hope she doesn’t release it for another THREE YEARS – I want it perfect..

    LMAO.

    This site is so thirsty for new Rihanna music that it’s killing them!

    • JanStan September 17, 2015

      Really? U mean the 3 official singles weren’t some indication that an album would be released soon? Kii at the reach when an album looks to be coming out more than a year after the first single.

  11. Paulo September 17, 2015

    HA! I knew it! She and Kanye together – no no no. You being a Pisces and needing clear direction, you don’t go for a Gemini for guidance. they’re too similar – cocky and lacking self-assessment and self-critique. I love both of them separately but together so far for #R8… nah.

  12. bash September 17, 2015

    A mess!devil’s advocate: is she even needed in the indusrty anymore…other girls have filled her void don’t you think?

  13. Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans September 17, 2015

    It’s okay, Sam! We all know you’ll be checking for R8 when it’s released. Your closet-stanning is showing, girl! Anyway, Rih needs to hurry the f*** up and just pick some of the recorded songs and call it an album because I NEED that album right now in my life. She better stop playing around and serve a new body of work. If you want the b**** to have your money, you better have new music ready for her.

  14. Lil Kim thee Only QB September 17, 2015

    Sam huntyyy. Click bait King. Anywho, my fave would never…….and no my fave isnt the Queen of the Asian Oompa Loompas Lil Kim Su Dum. We know where her career lies, in the ruins of Hong Kong. No! My fave is Azalea Benks….she took her own career and went platinum independently. When will RL8? Never because it’ll be scratched just like Chris did her face. Oop

  15. Who gonna check me boo? September 17, 2015

    Funny how the Migthy have fallen timeless music they said, Ray of light they said
    #imwithR8

  16. sleazy September 17, 2015

    if you cant admit that this album campaign is messy you delusional. AO failed BHMM did okay. whats the other aing with kanye did it reach top 10? anyway i dont like rihanna as a singer but yall gotta admit she has had some good tunes!! but its a shame that only 1 song in her discography can be labeled iconic ( thats my opinion) umbrella is iconic deal!!! the rest not so much

    • Adovian September 18, 2015

      Speaking of umbrella, which I agree is a timess record for her discography, I think she might need another GGGB: that was clearly a major turning point for her.

      She’s kind of at a crossroads of a similar nature now, just after the success.

  17. Rihanna’s biggest fan September 17, 2015

    I don’t Even bother with These articles anymore Sam is unprofessional and he obviously does not have he proper journalism training/education get a grip and grow up

    • Who gonna check me boo? September 17, 2015

      You obviously bothered since you took time to typed this

      • Rihanna’s biggest fan September 17, 2015

        I don’t bother paying any mind to the haters anymore I will however come correct your stupid turfy filthy always on that ebt line no teeth Having ass ho! Go wash ha nasty ass and stop being so worried bout when the album gon drop
        Who gon check you boo
        The doctor gon check you boo and you gon be mad ass hell when he tell you that p**** reached its expiration date

  18. sleazy September 17, 2015

    and do u think she will flop ? nope she is one the biggest pop stars out right now

  19. Keri Qween September 17, 2015

    Sam you post the same story at least twice a week with the same weak shade

    If an artist feels their album isn’t complete or up to par they won’t release period

    Shouldn’t you be excited with that boring ass song your fave is releasing today ????

    • Who gonna check me boo? September 17, 2015

      I know you not here talking about boring when your fave gave you “4 5 seconds from trying to be edgy” and “Barbadian Carbone dioxide in the same year”

  20. Suicide Blonde September 17, 2015

    The author of this article is one bitter moth€rfuck€r.

      he’s as bitter as your cocaine a$$ is always bitter off Beyoncé’s skin tone
      .
      bye trashy phaggot

  21. RihCrackHeaded September 17, 2015

    She’s too busy spreading sexual diseases in NY. No time to finish her album.

  22. Who gonna check me boo? September 17, 2015

    The navy is in full meltdown mode Rlate is nowhere to be seen, the hype level is at -100%, their fave is dating a living corpse looking n**** and, The Queen is dropping new music in a matter of hours I live for this beautiful time we’re in

  23. Chaelin Lee (p.k.a – CL) is coming | 재 이현 김 September 17, 2015

    at this point, i think she should just release all her singles + 4 more songs as an EP, so that she can move onto the next. she has to release this body of work before she can go to the next era or else the GP will assume its still R8

    • Truth September 17, 2015

      Agreed. This era is doomed to fail. Shes too far in to ignore the project now

  24. ugh okay September 17, 2015

    wtf. to blame yeez got no time. nobody else that can do work on it? produce. smthg. mmmh. huh. 😀

  25. RihYonce September 17, 2015

    This b**** needs to hurry up and release this album I’ve been waiting for years like , she needs to just put them songs together and just release it

  26. JanStan September 17, 2015

    Two major problems here:
    1. If her and Kanyes schedules weren’t matching than she would have cancelled all her side jobs to make time to focus on the album. She obviously ain’t here for that idea.

    2. She can’t release the album since albums don’t make money unless u tour behind them. Rihanna ain’t Janet or Madonna who can still sell tix regardless of how well their albums do.

    NO ONE in the game these days gets me turnt up like Rih so I hope she gets this mess together!!!

    • Shady81 September 17, 2015

      Or she should cut her ties with Kanye West all together, and find someone else to work with there’s plenty of producers she could chose from what Rihanna needs to do is start all over, shelve those three singles redo the entire album process and release the album next year.

      • Shady81 September 17, 2015

        Oh and have fun at the Janet concert @Janstan.

      • JanStan September 17, 2015

        Thanks Shady I am living at the thought of seeing her for a 5th time. Last time being 13 years ago what?! Obsessed much? 23 more days!

        As for Rih I completely agree. Kanye is too self centered to care much about someone else’s career.

  27. BeyRihLiyah September 17, 2015

    She should have never linked up with koonye in the first place his music is lackluster and he cant even sell his own music she should make another loud era (my favorite album /era from her) and add a little poprock

    • Lesotho Finnest September 17, 2015

      Cant sell music? All his albums are certified platinum or multi

    _____________

    With being said there’s no reason why this album shouldn’t be out. See this ish don’t make sense to me… B**** you trying to tell me you already have 3 singles and 3 videos out and you don’t have and official tracklist b**** bye. Just admit the singles didn’t do that well and you went back to the drawing board. Ain’t nobody buying this lame ass story except the navy of course

  29. Rihboy September 17, 2015

    Take your time boo. Nobody is pressed for it more than the “non” fans. I want it to be worth the wait! Although I feel like she is lying. I think she is dropping that album this quarter.

      B**** your T-Cells are fading.

  32. DIABETES UNBOTHERED September 17, 2015

    Great idea Sam. Bey has 2 albums so far that never saw the light of day where only work it out and the fela kuti album cut Grown Woman ever saw the light of day. Rih should just scrap the whole thing and go back to the SAFE route ala TALK THAT TALK! Lol leave the ARTIST idea to Bey and continue to be the puppet and industry slave u were meant to be rihanna. Theres no coming back from flops like ffs and bbhmm and the other one we shall not mention here lol good luck

  33. #JACKIE September 17, 2015

    LMAO! She is so DONE! Basketball forehead b**** has absolutely no talent or artistry. She needs to just call up her typical “writing camp” and have them do the work as usual. Oh I forgot her dumb ass left Def Jam and can’t get hits or #1s anymore. Enjoy being in the vault with Rita and Melanie Fiona honey.????

  34. Msyonce September 17, 2015

    Ain’t nobody pressed Lool………Who drops their first single in January and in September the album still not done???? Where they do that at??? So what is she doing with all these trips to the studio? She was also recording this album when went to Barbados for Christmas Lool she’s lying…

  35. DIABETES UNBOTHERED September 17, 2015

    Seems the rihtards still cant seem to grasps the concept that if the album doesnt come out this year it will be concidered LATE regardless of an official release date those dates themselves also have deadlines you idoits. Rihanna is a POP STAR, the phrase alone has its expiration date. What if Floyd Mayweather had been training all year long for a fight that never happened?

  36. Career Ender September 17, 2015

    “I have so many songs I love – and
    they’re so different – that it’s hard
    to actually put them all on the same
    album.”
    .
    Like MsYonce said:
    .
    she has enough songs to complete the album , 3 of them already released
    .
    her singles peak positions got her scared
    .
    such a basic bïtch so dependant on singles

    • Msyonce September 17, 2015

  38. Fancy BISH September 17, 2015

    Rihanna, we all know that what you’re fixing is bland and overcooked…she better not be trying to serve that dry turkey during the holidays lol…she probably played her struggle album for the label, and they were like…

  41. Gee September 17, 2015

    Earth to team Rih Rih let’s put the side projects on the back burner and focus on getting this album done and getting this era together properly.

  42. Audreyherbsburn September 17, 2015

    Did Rihanna do something to you guys personally? You’re always so derogatory towards her. You can never seem to report the news without being nasty.

  43. Queen Molly September 17, 2015

    Girl bye… blame them tired ass vocals. All 3 songs were beyond tragic… Rih you aint a real artist people gotta do the work for you smh FOH goat!!!

  44. Stephy. September 17, 2015

    This article was so un-called for & extremely rude. Sam, if you don’t like Rihanna, just stop posting articles about her. I mean, I understand expressing your opinion… but DAMN! You come across as an extremely bitter sour QWEEEEN!

    AnTEAways, I like Miss Rihanna. I think she’s one of the best POP stars of her generation (and possibly of all time). Her music (that she picks out) is extremely addictive & catchy. With that being said, I don’t look at her as being a “REAL” artist. I just look at her as being a great “POP STAR”, nothing more & nothing less. She’s not a great vocalist/singer, not a great dancer, not a great writer, not a great producer, not a great performer, nor is she the most creative. But, the girl just has the “IT” factor, that draws you end… She CAN entertain you (depending on how high/low your standards are). And, that’s why I call(s) her a GREAT POP STAR.
    .
    The reason as to why this “R8” era is taking so long, is probably due to her (Rihanna) wanting to be a REAL artist. She knows them lil bubblegum pop songs ain’t the true definition of who “SHE” is as an artist. It’s simple, she probably don’t relate to her own music. She even said that she wanted to start creating “classic” songs. What exactly, does that supposed to mean? Is she saying that her music isn’t classic? Who knows, but I feel as tho she wants to start speaking about her REAL life experiences. I think she wants to start creating music, she can truly call HERS. But, is that apart of her “natural talent”? Will her fans except a more REAL authentic Rihanna? Will her fans get bored of the non-pop tart Rihanna? Hmm, who knows? But, I love how she takes risk. Good luck, Robyn.

    • JanStan September 17, 2015

      While I can’t fault her for trying to be more artistic, what I CAN fault her for is not standing behind her work anyways. If her goal was to push herself musically she should have released her album regardless of whether or not it sells. Hell even Gaga to this day stands behind Artpop despite the fact it was her worst selling album. Sometimes risks work and sometimes they don’t but if your goal is to be seen as more than a model who releases singles then you’re going to have to not let sales define you. LIKE ALL TRUE LEGENDS HAVE DONE.

    • IcyOne September 17, 2015

      F*** everything you just said. Rihanna is a not a great pop star, she’s a transparent prop star who was created by a coalition of scheming and manipulative executives, songwriters and producers who arrogantly decided to make her garden variety ass into a “pop star” for a quick buck. She’s not real. She’s not entertaining. And she caters to the lowest common denominator. She’s the equivalent to a can of Hormel chili with a “sell by” date on it. Bratty kids with nothing going on themselves like her because they see that she’s just like them: not talented or special. She epitomizes and personifies everything that has ever been disingenuous and flat out WRONG with the music business, and thinks it’s cute. Her backlash is here and it’s due.

  45. Queen Molly September 17, 2015

    “It’s official. ‘R8′ is an undeniable disaster.”

    CRYING!

  46. Queen Molly September 17, 2015

    @Stephy it wasn’t rude it was hilarious Rihanna hoee ass deserves to be dragged.

  47. Msyonce September 17, 2015

    January 2015 – ”Soon”
    Semptember 2015 – ”It’s not Done”
    December 2015 – ”I’m starting the album”

  48. Slay_Hive September 17, 2015

    BWAHAHAHAHAHA This is one messy flop era! She doesn’t have that hit that she needs to sell her album! Hasn’t she been working on this album for over two years now?? The three singles just didn’t perform the way she/her team thought, so now that are back to the drawing board???????? She hasn’t even been recording.. Poor Nazi’s smh

    • Queen Molly September 17, 2015

      Rihanna and her navy are in denial Rihanna career is over… Rihooee better get a drake or eminem feature to help save her pathetic ass career.

      • Slay_Hive September 17, 2015

        At this point a Drake or Eminem collab wouldn’t be interesting either..Rihanna just lost her spark…She’s washed now…Every pop star experiences this stage.Not all make it to icon/legendary status, while still slaying in their careers!

      • Queen Molly September 17, 2015

        Right booo!!! Not everyone can be like Queen Bey.

  49. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy September 17, 2015

    Although I have been eagerly waiting for #R8 like a crackhead waiting for his next fix, I do not mind if it is iconic. If she had to scrap the old album because it wasn’t good, so be it. I just need her to make sure that when it drops it’s fire.

    • Queen Molly September 17, 2015

        FLATLINES Where’s my coffin???? Lol

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy September 17, 2015

        @Molly You lying fupa having b*tch. You know damn well Ciara is your fave as she was your avi. Now, since Ciara is the laughing stock of the music industry, you want to cling to Beyonce. You ain’t no real hive ho*. You are nothing more than weak broad who looks for acceptance. Ooops just like your walls. Now, go out on that corner and work that stroll for daddy. #B*tchBetterHaveMyMoney #LikeBrapBrapBrap

    Oh boy… She should taken a page out of Britney’s book.

  51. #TeamTinashe Stan September 17, 2015

    Yes Rihanna is a mess this era for this new album> Y’all remember “It’s going to be timeless”? Lol hehe! And the ones that are on here that are always on a Rihanna post crying about how her album is not out are undercover stans just like Sam. Pretty obvious!

    And I like Sam but how are you going to say Rihanna is a fulltime model and a part time singer when you go HARD for Oral Gel? I CAN’T!

  52. StrawberryMuffin24 September 17, 2015

    Who even cares about this album it’s clear she’s scared to flop that’s the real reason she released the album in plus all 3 of her singles sucked Bye Felicia!

  53. xedos September 17, 2015

    You’re more obsessed with rihanna’s album more that rihanna. Rihanna own her own record label she doesn’t have a deadline to meet like before. She don’t need the money

  54. Lesotho Finnest September 17, 2015

    Bwahahahaha b you better drag the goat

  55. JanStan September 17, 2015

    Truthfully the only way to save this era is to disappear for a few more months and release the 4th single as if it were the first. She needs needs to separate herself from those singles as much as she can. At this point Im being kind by even calling it an ‘era’

  56. How Many Drinks September 17, 2015

    LMAO first of all Im crying with laughter at that HOT MESS of a picture. Secondly, RLATE is DONE before its even begun. Everyone knows it, even her fans.

  57. Markell B September 17, 2015

    This article is trash. And RiRi’$ album will go multi-platnium as usual.

    Kanye is a genius and RiRi delivers, it will be worth the wait.

    Also, it will be released during the dry spell of the pop ind. Which will be nice, we need that winter soundtrack.

    • Slay_Hive September 17, 2015

      Death @ “multi-platinum as usual” biitch where?!! Lmaooo

    • Tyler Makiavelli September 17, 2015

      Multiplatinum??? When was the last time any of Rihannas albums went multiplatinum????

  58. DTG September 17, 2015

    Laughing at “it’s not done.” As if Rihanna is known for her artistic creativity to the point where it should take this long to complete. This ho ain’t D’Angelo. My guess is that she’s submitted this album to Roc Nation at least twice and they keep rejecting it and making her start over. At this point, it won’t even come out this year. We all know that the release of a new Rihanna album can’t compete at any time except for the week of Black Friday (and even that’s spotty if another major act chooses that week too.) September is already half over. If it’s “not done” now, then my guess is that it won’t be in time for her to desperately exploit that day-after-Thanksgiving sales rush. And she’s not a competitive enough seller to release it closer to Christmas, when people are making last minute purchases and would be less likely to pick up something as petty as a Rihanna album. No major artist releases a new album in Jan/Feb. when people are shopped out. So now what’s left? Next spring when sales begin to pick up? LOL! Rihanna going close to 4 years in between albums is so funny that it’s damn near darling.

    The real issue here is that music tastes are starting to shift. Her brand of microwavable pop corn is stale and she’s no where near talented enough to transition into the more serious artist she’s laughably tried (and failed) to be with all the random singles she’s put out over this past year. So in limbo she sits. While Roc Nation searches for a hit and a moment “right” enough to put out this album and not have it so marred by poor first week sales that it dies instantly. Ha.

    • Slay_Hive September 17, 2015

      Lmaooo I see NO LIES!! You betta spill!!!!

  59. How Many Drinks September 17, 2015

    Her fans were too cocky just because she has a few payola hits that are already dated af. Now karmas coming back around they can’t deal with the bitterness eating them up after after spending all of 2013 asking where Beyonce new album was. I cant with karma.

  60. How Many Drinks September 17, 2015

    She wont see it passed 30 at this rate…

  61. How Many Drinks September 17, 2015

    And B!ch no ones here for you being ‘creative’ or ‘artistic’.Your fans are too shallow for all that and the floppage this era is proving it. Don’t fixx what aint broken honey. Should have stuck to her usual formula of everything being handed to her on a plate and churning out them bubblegum hits like the true conveyer belt she is.

  62. Teyoncé September 17, 2015

    Does anyone else find it weird that she releases this news right after the world finds out Bey is releasing new music today? Her team is terrified of competing with the Queen. They know she will flop.

  63. AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig September 17, 2015

    This b*tch is bananas as fvck! Who you foolin sis? Aren’t you the same person that just supported the bullsh*t idea of Kanyeisha running for president, but now you wanna blame him for your failed album. I’m still laughing at her dumb mindless bandwagoning domestic-violence-supporting fa*g fans, that were claiming her album was going to be released Christmas Day 2014, LMAO!

  64. Career Ender September 17, 2015

    godzilla nostrilled biatch, stay in yo lane before I unleash on your weak limp slút body @JACKIE

  65. Navy Captain September 17, 2015

    It is so funny to me that the only people bothered by this are the beyhive bunch lmao :). Yall funny as hell. Why are yall so pressed?? Is it because Rihanna has more platinum albums than your “Queen”. Or because she has sold so many more singles than your queen? You keep talking about FFS poorly charting when it was only 2 notches away from Drunk in Love, your queen’s highest charting single since Single Ladies (what year was that?) yall are so pressed and it’s obvious. The only reason your Queen made a comeback after her “4” flop era is because she bit off Rih’s fashion, music, and all of a sudden Wants to be ratchet now that she is pushing 40. She is just as pressed as the beyhive. You guys make good followers, not leaders just like your queen. Now catch that dirt!

    • Tyler Makivelli September 17, 2015

      B**** Rihanna only has two multiplatinum albums. Beyonce has FOUR. So stop f***** lying.

      • IcyOne September 17, 2015

        Rihanna only has one multiplatinum album. Pretty much says what the GP thinks of her. She may compel their quarters, but not their bills.

      • Navy Captain September 17, 2015

        Tyler….Idk what else to say, except can you not f****** read you imbecile? Nobody said anything about multiplatinum albums? Rihanna has 6 platinum albums, Beyonce has 5 and those are facts. Why are you so bothered? Because everything I said is a fact, THAT IS WHY. You can have every seat in the Bey-Hive…you probably didn’t even buy Bey’s last album broke ass. SMH

      • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig September 18, 2015

        Beyonce has five platinum albums because she has only released five, you fvcking idiot… And yes multiplatinum albums are superior to platinum ones, so homegirl hœhanna has lost that battle years ago. In fact B has outsold Rihanna in albums with 2 less.. So seethe, you stupid pîece of BÎTCH!

  66. Monica Stan September 17, 2015

    She’s so afraid to flop it’s hilarious lol. Girl just release your album and flop with grace. Release #R9 a couple months later and act like it never happened.

  67. StarXavi September 17, 2015

    I wouldn’t count Rihanna out just yet. At the end of the day its us the fans who are becoming impatient that she has released a new album, but if it takes more time then it takes more time. People just mad cuz they have to wait longer than the normal time between albums, which really isnt her problem but ours. You got Adele coming out with albums every four years and others taking up to 7 years for new releases. I say give it time….when its ready she will come hard like she always does.

  68. isi September 17, 2015

    Like a couple of other artist,Ri is scared to flop.If she believed in her own hype the album would be out by now.
    Problem is she doesn’t have Def Jam’s purse anymore.
    She has a large fan base,but is it large enough to withstand 3+ without an album? The only people I know that are waiting on this album is the navy. Some may joke about Beyonce not having a #1 since 08,but at least not having a #1 single doesn’t prevent her from releasing music or touring.R8 will be lucky to see 4’s numbers.

  69. DIABETES UNBOTHERED September 17, 2015

    Rihannas version of building hype and anticipation is releasing singles videos and performing them while bey accomplishees this by doing next to nothing. 7/11 anyone? And someone explain to me how beys laast album sold more than half rihs last album in the states to date in just 3 days with no promotion.

  70. bria September 17, 2015

    Rihanna is on another level

  71. bria September 17, 2015

    Dior puma stance perfume nme covers……

    She’s good as is her album

  72. bria September 17, 2015

    It’s amazing how worried yall claim to be or how happy it makes you to gloat at her fantasized demise

    Rihanna has already done something with hwr life face it

    What are you doing with yours being a hater, ewwwww

  73. msyonce September 17, 2015

    There’s nothing wrong with her wanting to scrap the album if she doesnt believe in it but just stop lying bish. Since FfS dropped she was saying the album is coming “soon” oh its coming “soon” but as soon as the singles didnt do all that its ” oh its not done my schedule is crazy” girl stop.

  74. Rosie September 17, 2015

    The fear???? Just release the album, it’ll sell at least 1 million worldwide which is perfectly fine for 2015/2016. Hell that’s more than most albums period this year, Ariana Grande had Teenage a Dream level promo for My Everything and Mediatraffic (gays favorite source) only has it like 100K over Ultraviolence; Onika has been promoting for a year and a half and is barely over 900K, Florence headlined Glastonbury and her album hasn’t hit 800K yet.
    Speaking of Glastonbury why is she covering NME? I thought that was reserved for British landfill indie artists like The Libertines etc.

  75. Meteorite September 17, 2015

    She might as well just release a greatest hits album and call it a day. That way she has more time to work on her album and release it next year.

  76. bria September 17, 2015

    Change is a concept many cant grasp

    She changed her mind like she changes hwr hair, fashion etc.

    Geesh

  77. @JanetCIARA_ September 17, 2015

    I never seen a ho3 so scary! Lmao, she a thug on social media but can’t be a thug with getting her s*** together career wise with the non existent album?
