Rihanna Confirms Rumored Reggae Album in ‘British Vogue’ / Says ‘I’m Aggressively Working on New Music’

Published: Monday 30th Mar 2020 by Rashad

Rihanna is hard at work on new music as revealed in the May 2020 issue of ‘British Vogue.’

Playing cover girl not just once, but twice for the Fashion Bible’s May 2020 issue, the diva – under the lens of photographer Steven Klein –  confirmed she’s polishing the long-awaited LP, her first since 2016’s chart-topping ‘Anti.’

Delivering quotes sure to have tongues wagging, hop in to see what she has to say about that ever elusive new project:

On release date of new album:

“I can’t say when I’m going to drop,” she says (it could even be out by the time you read this). “But I am very aggressively working on music,” she adds, coyly.

On concept and themes on new album:

“I don’t want my albums to feel like themes,” she says, taking a sip of wine. “There are no rules. There’s no format. There’s just good music, and if I feel it, I’m putting it out.”

On rumored Reggae album:

“Oh no, that is happening. 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.”

*****

Due on digital newsstands April 3, the May 2020 edition of ‘British Vogue’ comes as a history-making issue for the mag as Rih is the first ever to wear a durag on one of its covers.

    Feed us music queen!!!

    • Dua Lipa Stan March 30, 2020

      We don’t need you. We have Dua Lipa now the new Queen.

    • Meme March 30, 2020

      You know at first I was like with c***** we are doomed. But when you think about she really should drop now during c*****. If it’s one thing we need now is music. I know her team is probably too caught up with having a big roll out and optimizing every opportunity for this album so that wouldn’t happen.

      • Only Facts March 30, 2020

        I agree. Just look at The Weeknd and Dua pulling big sales. This is the time to drop because people are sitting at home on their ? and streaming music all day

    • Arihanna grande April 1, 2020

      She is mistress not Queen !!!

  2. Ughhh March 30, 2020

    STUNNING!!!

    Rihanna doesn’t go by the rules. When has she ever?!?

    She is about to silence all these little teenie boppers you all be stanning. Your faves will never be on her level. Quote me.

  3. Meme March 30, 2020

    Girl bye….with c***** going on now you have all the time to to record. Like go away until you have real news. We don’t need the tease anymore.

    I honestly feel like the album has been finished, twice. It makes no sense to waste a magazine cover like this with no roll out. Which led me to believe that these spreads were suppose to accompany the album.

    • Ughhh March 30, 2020

      This cover was shot months ago if you are familiar with how editorial works. This interview wasn’t recent, January at best, so clearly she was ready to release music either late this month or April given this is the May issue.

      She can’t control the virus.

      If you can read as much as you care to comment:

      “I can’t say when I’m going to drop,” she says (it could even be out by the time you read this).

  4. I love big black c** March 30, 2020

    Gurl bye. She said the same thang since 2018.

  5. Meteorite March 30, 2020

    It’s time for me to move on from this blog. I started coming here late 2009. The quality just isn’t the same anymore. It was fun while it lasted but it’s time to say goodbye.
    My official last post.

    • Pu$$yPop$tre$$ March 30, 2020

      we’ll pour out a 40 for u…actually i’ll just drink it and think of ur memory when i p*** it out.

      • Pu$$yPop$tre$$ March 30, 2020

        damn we can’t even say p!ss anymore without it being starred out? come on sam.

    • Lana Del Fan March 30, 2020

      Agreed! Back when the reads were funny, and posts had 1000 comments. Now it’s just that fake a$$ Carmelo Anthony fan and no interesting comments. I barely come here anymore.

  7. Haterz Gon‘ Hate March 30, 2020

    Another Legend who sits with the main girls and doesn’t know that other chick. Like: that other chick is like a piece of rock floating in space 10 billion light years away from Sun ☀️. I’m glad music is getting back ON TOPIC after the minor distraction that was that annoying water vole. ?

  8. Lol March 30, 2020

    “The first to ever wear a durag on the cover”
    Lol you actually typed this with confidence? Like that’s an accomplishment?

    • Haterz Gon‘ Hate March 30, 2020

      1. If it hasn’t happened before surely the first time it happens is an accomplishment when said item is linked to black culture has more cultural significant than any designer ‘thing’ she is wearing ….

  9. Dua Lipa Stan March 30, 2020

    Who is she?

  10. Beyonce Knows March 30, 2020

    Rona told Rihanna put up or shut up

  11. Rihanna thinks she’s mexican? March 30, 2020

    I just love Mexico. I really need to do my DNA test,” Rihanna laughs. Maybe you were Mexican in a past life? “Yeah,” she smiles, “maybe I was an agave plant.
    The Guyanese are like the Mexicans of Barbados,” she says. “So I identify – and that’s why I really relate and empathise with Mexican people or Latino people, who are discriminated against in America.

  12. Tyty March 30, 2020

    Her album covers and style just ain’t been it the past couple years. I used to look forward to her latest looks. Arghh get it together rih. As for this album yeah will wait to see if it’s ever dropped.

  13. Keith March 30, 2020

    JUST.DROP.THE.MUSIC. “You may now go back to your regularly scheduled programming”…

  14. Diabeetus Unbothered March 30, 2020

    For someone that gets 15 hours of sleep per day, Rih Scheduled is aging TERRIBLY. all that coke has been catching up to rih for sum time now. In four five seconds video Rih looked even worse than Chris Brown.

    I’m ready for rih to make an album bigger or better than beys worse…
    IASF

    • Dua Lipa Stan March 30, 2020

      Gurl you’re cracking me up ???

  15. Diabeetus Unbothered March 30, 2020

    Baby Boy
    Video Phone
    Hold Up
    The Gift

    Bey has mastered raegae for better than Rihsceduled. Bey is far more versatile and has even experimented with Arabic vocals/music along with REAL country not weak country like California King bed or fourfiveseconds

    • Dua Lipa Stan March 30, 2020

      Beyonce is prettier than Rihanna. Rihanna lookt different without make up. Beyonce is natural beauty.

  16. PinotNoir March 30, 2020

    Oh, that was a durag? I thought it was what Bedouin women cover their heads with before making bread by sticking it to the sides of a circular, metal woodstove. Hmm.

  17. Jason March 30, 2020

    She looks amazing!! Can’t wait to hear the new music!

  18. Around the way filet March 30, 2020

    rihanna doesn’t look good anymore. i miss the days she used to slay.
