Rihanna Responds To Fan Asking For ‘R9’: “2021 Energy”

Published: Saturday 2nd Jan 2021 by Ryan

While it has only been 2021 for a short time, a Rihanna fan is already being pressured by a fan to release her ninth studio album.

Full story below…

RiRi took to Instagram to celebrate the new year by posting a selfie on Instagram with the caption: “new year’s resolution: apply the pressure.”

This caused one fan to respond, saying:

“Resolution should be releasing the album.”

The ‘Needed Me’ singer then replied to the comment with:

“this comment is sooo 2019. grow up.”

However, later on she doubled back and said:

“2021 energy.”

The GRAMMY-winner’s long-rumored album ‘R9’ has been in the works for some time. In 2019, Rihanna shared a video on Instagram where she hinted at the project (as we reported here).

Her last album, ‘Anti,’ was met with both critical and commercial success.

Here’s to hoping 2021 will finally be the year we see ‘R9.’ But what are…

Your thoughts?

    The money she made from selling makeup and underwear these past few years was probably more than the money she made making music for several years.

    I dont blame her
    Music is not a lucrative business
    Its stressful.
    Touring, singing, promoting, interviews etc

    After making all that money, u have to share it with ur label.

    • UHoesFunny January 2, 2021

      Agreed! Plus she’s a Pisces, they get bored quick 😹 she’s always on to the next…

    She better hurry. 2021 is the year of Normani.

    • Ace Blanks January 2, 2021

      Normani hasn’t released a solo song since August 2019 which was a mediocre song at best! And I was a Normani fan from her 5H days to the beginning of her solo venture but now I just feel like I don’t see a solo star anymore. So my point is Normani makes no comparison to Ri. Your statement was very hopeful though!

    • baby monster January 2, 2021

      lol wut?

    • UHoesFunny January 2, 2021

      They do not compare, when you got Normani opening in your Savage x Fenty show, they do not compare. Although, it would be nice to see new content from Mz. Mani this year 👀

    she doesn’t want to release music that’s obvious. But even a greatest hits album with 1 or 2 new songs isn’t a bad idea. How can you ignore your fans request for years and be rude to them for asking? She is releasing a random ass cook book nobody asked for chile….

    • Incognito January 2, 2021

      I agree, i’m very disappointed by her behavior toward her fans. She has always been known for being a singer first and we are all passionate by music so what was she expecting?

      • UHoesFunny January 2, 2021

        Listen to yourself, you’re saying she should put her legacy on hold to make an album for us 💀 Rih would laugh at this lmfaooo. She loves her fans, but never in a million years is she letting anything or anyone come between her & her stabilty aka Da bag 💰🤑🤑

    • HELLOKITTY January 4, 2021

      @tyty – haha

  4. Erica January 2, 2021

    She’s not artist anymore at this point

  5. IKNOWTHETRUTH January 2, 2021

    LOL GAGGING AT TGJ SAYIN ANTI WAS A CRITICAL N COMMERCIAL SUCCESS WHEN THE REAL ☕️ HAS BEEN OUT SINCE IT WAS FIRST RELEASED AKA SAMSUNG BOUGHT A MILLION COPIES OF THE ALBUM TO MAKE IT PLATINUM N RIHANNA SAID THE NAVY DID IT MEANWHILE THE ALBUM FLOPPED N PEAKED AT WORK. NEEDED ME DID DECENT BUT THIS ALBUM WAS KNOW FOR 1.5 SINGLES N FILLERS AFTER WAITIN FOREVER FOR IT. R9 NEEDS TO BE SHELVED IF SHE ISNT COMIN BY AT LEAST Q2

    • Meme January 2, 2021

      I came to make this very comment. The nerve lol.

      • IKNOWTHETRUTH January 4, 2021

        GIRL LIKE THAT ALBUM DIDNT DEBUT AT 27 THE FIRST WEEK 😂😂😂

    • Datred23 January 2, 2021

      Anti is the 6th longest female charting album of all time ! It is the template to these new girls releases and has mega hits kiss it better love on the brain work consideration and more yall nuts are delusional forsure ! She received a 25 million dollar check to push Samsung is that really a read at this point ! Y’all h*** will say anything…

      • Tori January 2, 2021

        Anti is Rihanna best album because she finally stepped out artistically and followed through. That being said, it’s still not a great ‘all around’ album. There’s atleast 3-5 filler tracks that aren’tas good as the bonus tracks, 3 songs that are terribly underproduced including “Kiss It Better”, and as the rollout and release was a complete disaster. It took a year of snippets and singles for the album to eventually be leaked and thrown out. The album really didn’t have any ‘mega hits’ either, “Work” went #1 and then was forgotten about, “Needed Me” only did good in Urban and R&B because Pop didn’t want it and “Love On The Brain” was promising but never went anywhere. The albums numbers and chart status was held up by streaming as streaming has made it easy for a multitude of artists to break and create new records. It’s no template for any Pop girl because it’s this grand dame, monumental album. It’s simply Rihanna finding her artistic freedom and not caring. Even at her best, it was plenty of room for improvement.

      • Luther January 2, 2021

        Wtf are you talking about….

        “Work” was #1 for several weeks and went 6x platinum. Forgotten by whom?

        “Needed Me” was top 10 and the most successful R&B single of 2016. Received Grammy nomination. Went 5x platinum.

        “Love On The Brain” was top 5 with no promo or video! 3x platinum!

        Again, what are you talking about sis!!

      • IKNOWTHETRUTH January 4, 2021

        GIRL EITHER WAY U SPIN IT, SAMSUNG BOUGHT A MILLION COPIES BEFORE ANY MEMBER OF THE NAVY BOUGHT A THANNNG CUZ UHHH DOES ANYONE REMEMBER THAT IT DEBUTED AT NUMBER 27 WIT ONLY 460 COPIES SOLD. LOL SO ALL THE STREAMS THAT WORK GOT IT MAY HAVE HELPED BUT THE ONLY REASON ITS STILL ON THE CHARTS IS CUZ THATS HER LAST RELEASE N THE NAVY WANTS A NEW ALBUM SO THEY STREAM THE MOST RECENT ONE 😂😂

      • IKNOWTHETRUTH January 4, 2021

        LOL U SAY ANYTHING CUZ KISS IT BETTER DIDNT DO ANYTHING EXCEPT FLOP CUZ IT PEAKED AT NUMBER 62 😂😂😂😂

    • UHoesFunny January 2, 2021

      You’ll still be here to listen once it releases though so…all that energy for wut?! 🥴

  6. 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(💫Perfectly Splendid✨) January 2, 2021

    Lazzzzzzzy asssssss energy 💅🏿💅🏿💅🏿 Gurl bye~ I’m looking forward for her comeback album & tour in 2030 when she had tons of kids with different baby daddies💁🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️

  7. Incognito January 2, 2021

    She has always been known for being a singer first and we are all passionate by music so what was she expecting?

    i’m very disappointed by her behavior toward her fans which are really loyals, patient and probably buying some of her clothes and make-up while it’s probably not what they are looking for at first. If you turn your back on the fanbase you built up all these years you won’t be surprised if they turn their back on you the day you will decide to come back. Sad but at this point I don’t care about her anymore.

  8. Shayla Queen 👑 January 2, 2021

    I love Rihanna but I’m certainly not worried about if or when she’ll release new music, although of course I hope she does and I’ll definitely pre-order the album, most likely on vinyl. I’m the same with any artist. When they release, they release. I don’t know why so many people are so stressed out by when that may or may not be, not how much you love the artist. She also already has a huge back catalogue to go back and replay. I know I do and still enjoy a lot of it to this day. I even forget how much I love a lot of it until I decide to listen to it.

    • Shayla Queen 👑 January 2, 2021

      *no matter how much you love the artist

    • Incognito January 2, 2021

      I was thinking of you this morning, hoping that you were doing fine because I didn’t read you for a while. How is your beautiful baby? Happy new year by the way 🎉🥂🎊

      • Shayla Queen 👑 January 2, 2021

        Awww thank you so much, that’s very sweet! We are all doing great and enjoyed some family time over the new year which was really nice. How are you doing? Happy new year to you too! 🥰

      • 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(💫Perfectly Splendid✨) January 2, 2021

      • Shayla Queen 👑 January 2, 2021

      • Incognito January 2, 2021

        No reason to jealous Marilyn, I love you too beauty 😘 🌹

        Flowers for all my TGJ’s Queen 🌹🌹🌹

    As for her cookbook, why not? It may just be something she has on her bucket list of things she wants to do. We all have a number of different passions and interests and it’s healthy to explore and try new things. She’s making the most of being in a position where she can do these things.

    • Incognito January 2, 2021

      You’re right my dear, we’re just mad like junkies in need for a dose of Riri new sound 😅 Kelis did a cookbook too but I miss her so much 😭

      • Shayla Queen 👑 January 2, 2021

        Yes, Kelis!! 🥰

  10. Honeyyyyy January 2, 2021

    THIS ALBUM IS COMING SOONER THAN WE THINK !

    • baby monster January 2, 2021

      no it isnt luv

  11. Hesings January 2, 2021

    I think she is have voice issues and trying to hid it til it heals.

  12. We Are the Grandchildren of the Slaves You Couldn’t Kill January 2, 2021

    She was never a singer to begin with. So, I’m sure any little talent that she had is gone due to being outta the game for so long.

    • Shayla Queen 👑 January 2, 2021

      Stop it.

      • We Are the Grandchildren of the Slaves You Couldn’t Kill January 2, 2021

        You first.

      • Shayla Queen 👑 January 2, 2021

        Girl bye.

  13. ~The Arcade~ January 3, 2021

    She might as well come clean with her fans and tell them that she quits making music and is doing other ventures. Cos this makes no kinda sense…

  14. Fancy BISH January 3, 2021

    She has a nasty attitude and you can tell that she is an ABW, I fully understand why Chris Brown beat the sh|t out of her.
    Def Jam f’ed up by not pushing Amerie or Teairra Mari to the frontline as both ladies are true singers and writers.

    • 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(💫Perfectly Splendid✨) January 3, 2021

      Agree that. What a waste of bunch of talented artist. They spend all fundings on Rihanna and ne yo. At least ne yo knows how to write hits💅🏿💅🏿💅🏿Don’t forget about Christina milian and ashanti as well. Def Jam ruined their careers.

    • 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(💫Perfectly Splendid✨) January 3, 2021

      I wanna chris breezy to beat my p u s s y up 💅🏿💅🏿💅🏿 That b I t c h was so lucky 💁🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️

      • Fancy BISH January 3, 2021

        Amen

  15. HavanaOnana January 3, 2021

    Pisces gurls rock!
    From Riri to Camila
    Plus I love “Anti” album and “Love on the Brain” is a great single
    Much betta than “Wa Wa Wild, wa wa wild thoughts “ lol
    I want some “Pon De Replay” and if it’s lovin that you want vibe on her next album

  16. Doja Cat Say So January 3, 2021

    Rih basically said y’all can buy my skincare and lingerie till I’m ready to drop the album
    On top of that at least she’s making normani employed and giving her coins

  17. Diamond January 3, 2021

    This post is wrong she responded to a further comment from the person.

  18. Keith January 3, 2021

    LOL…the Navy ain’t never getting that album! LOL…
