Rihanna fans have been thirsty for new music in the five years since she released her last album ‘ANTI.’
And the anticipation has only heightened as the star has used the time between to built her billion-dollar empire around everything but music.
However, at the preview event for her incoming Savage x Fenty Vol 3 show, RiRi opened up like never before about her incoming 9th LP.
And, interestingly, she says, to expect the unexpected.
Full story below…
Speaking with The Associated Press, the 33-year-old stressed that ‘R9’ – as her Navy have codenamed the set – is “going to be completely different.”
Indeed, she urged supporters to do away with any preconceived notions of what they feel the project may sound like.

It’s fair to say that ‘ANTI’ was “the” project that saw Rih pivot from the annual embrace of whatever sound was “in” and for many serves as her most resonating effort because of that.
With that, as well as her words today, we’re buzzed for what’s coming. Whenever it’s coming.
