Rihanna Confirms New Album in the Works

  /  06.17.2018

R9 is coming.

Two-and-a-half years after releasing her last album, Rihanna confirmed that her ninth studio album is in the works.

During a visit to “The Graham Norton Show” to promote Ocean’s 8, RiRi was asked about the highly-anticipated follow-up to 2016’s ANTI. “I actually am in the studio and working on new music,” she said to cheers from the audience.

But a release date remains to be seen. When asked if it would be out in time for Christmas, she replied, “You just have to wait and see.”

Joined by her fellow Ocean’s 8 cast members Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Sarah Paulson, and Helena Bonham Carter, Rihanna was also questioned about her “criminal” activity. Paparazzi photos were shown of her leaving clubs and restaurants on numerous occasions with drinks still in her hand.

“That might’ve been one [glass] that I took to the club,” she said before adding, “My mom is gonna see this.”

They also discussed Rihanna’s Pope-inspired outfit at this year’s Met Gala, and how she managed to get in the car with it.

“This one was a piece of cake compared to the yellow situation,” she said of last year’s Guo Pei creation, which required six people and a stretch limo.

Ocean’s 8 opened at No. 1 in the U.S. last week and has since earned nearly $80 million in 10 days. The all-female heist caper cost $70 million to make.
