Rihanna fans can’t get enough. Even though she released an album in January 2016, people are clamoring for more. It looks like Rihanna listened, and will release a brand new album in 2017.
The world can’t get enough of Rihanna, and she knows it. That is why she is busy working on her ninth studio album, which may be released in the early part of the new year. The name of Rihanna’s upcoming album has not yet been revealed, but there are several rumors circulating. There is also speculation about Rihanna’s new songs for 2017, as fans are hoping for more from the star. Though, more news is still needed on Rihanna’s new album, as details have not been given.
Can’t Get Enough
The album Rihanna released exclusively through Tidal on January 28, 2016, is called Anti. The next day, a deluxe version of Anti with three additional tracks was released on Apple Music. Even though the album sold prodigiously and spawned several hit singles like “Work” and “Needed Me” her fans wanted more. Now it looks that their wishes for a bunch of Rihanna’s new songs will come true after all. With Rihanna’s new album, 2017 is expected to rock worldwide charts.
Rihanna’s producer, Cardo, spilled the beans while talking to Complex UK. Cardo hinted at the chances of Rihanna releasing songs recorded for Anti, but did not make it to the album. Cardo reported that he and Rihanna recorded a track together, but did not give the title, or its possible release date, “There’s so many records we’ve been working on that’s about to come out. I can’t say anything beyond that, but we got a record with Rihanna. That’s all I can say. I can’t say anything more, but there’s a Rihanna and Cardo record.”
New Tracks Registered
Rumors about a second Anti started after it was discovered that Rihanna had registered three new tracks “Lock And Key,” “Body Language,” and “Joyride.” Fans later found out that Rihanna had two more tracks called “Mayday” and “Shotgun.” This new bit of information has further fueled fan’s expectations of a new Rihanna album.
Fuelling the Fire
After a fan reached out to Rihanna saying, “Boo are the rumors about Anti Part 2 true?” Rihanna gave a terse reply “No! Working on R9” followed by a winking emoji. Though it seems she’s working on a ninth album, we don’t know for sure if it will be released in 2017. All we know for sure is that it is not an Anti follow-up album, rather it will be a brand new stand-alone album. That’s fantastic news for her fans and the music industry as well.
No Better Person to Be
Rihanna had confessed to being a huge Madonna fan and cited the pop icon as her biggest influence. She went on to say that she wanted to be the “black Madonna.” By just being herself, Rihanna has achieved worldwide success in her career and sold more than 200 million records. She has reinvented herself throughout her career, making millions of fans fall in love with Rihanna.
