Rihanna Claps Back After Being Questioned About Album Status

  /  11.13.2019

Rihanna fans may have to keep waiting for new music.

Despite rumors that a new album will drop this year, Rihanna’s schedule isn’t letting up. On Wednesday morning, the multi-hyphenate mogul took to Instagram to apologize for not being around due to her overwhelming workload.

“To all my friends/family/coworkers who I have yet to get back to in the past months…please forgive me,” she wrote. “This year has been quite an overwhelming one, and I’m working on that ish called Balance. brb.”

While some fans were understanding, others reminded Rihanna that she still hasn’t released an album in nearly four years. “Where’s the album heaux?!!!” commented her stylist and Fenty junior creative director Jahleel Weaver.

But RiRi was not here for it and jokingly clapped back, “I don’t need this kinda negativity in my life! BLOCKT.”

Fans have been patiently awaiting Rihanna’s ninth album, dubbed R9. “I like to look at it as a reggae-inspired or reggae-infused album,” she recently told Vogue. “It’s not gonna be typical of what you know as reggae.”

The world’s richest female artist has been busy growing her $600 million empire, which includes her Savage X Fenty lingerie line, Fenty Beauty, and Fenty brand partnership with LVMH. Last month, she released her 504-page photo book.

“I have been trying to get back into the studio. It’s not like I can lock myself in for an extended amount of time, like I had the luxury of doing before,” she said. “I know I have some very unhappy fans who don’t understand the inside bits of how it works.”

But despite her other endeavors, she will never turn her back on music. “Music is, like, speaking in code to the world, where they get it. It’s the weird language that connects me to them,” she said. “Me the designer, me the woman who creates makeup and lingerie–it all started with music. It was my first pen pal-ship to the world. To cut that off is to cut my communication off. All of these other things flourish on top of that foundation.”
