Rihanna seemingly hints at new music for her upcoming reggae album
This is not a drill. New music from Rihanna might be on the way.
Yesterday (Aug. 17), Rihanna allegedly registered a new song with music publisher, BMI. The song is entitled “Private Loving” and was written by Rihanna and dancehall artist, Demarco. Although Rihanna has yet to confirm the track, Demarco reacted to the post on social media, which makes Rih’s fans believe that the single might be legit.
Back in May, during an interview with T Magazine, Rihanna confirmed that she was working on a reggae album. The album will serve as the follow-up to her LP ANTI, which released to streaming platforms three years ago. While speaking on her forthcoming project, Rihanna stated that she couldn’t decide on an album title. Thanks to the Navy, however, Rih might go with R9.
“So far it’s just been R9, thanks to the Navy,” Rihanna stated. “I’m about to call it that probably, ’cause they have haunted me with this ‘R9, R9, when is R9 coming out?’ How will I accept another name after that’s been burned into my skull?”
In other Rihanna-related news, she recently spoke out regarding the country’s current state. After the unfortunate mass shootings that took place in Texas and Ohio, Rihanna explained that President Donald Trump needs to take more action regarding gun control. The “Work” songstress explained in her post that it’s too easy for someone to get access to a gun.
“Imagine a world where it’s easier to get an AK-47 than a VISA!” Rihanna wrote. “Imagine a world where they build a wall to keep terrorists IN AMERICA!!! My prayers and deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of all the victims from Texas, California, and Ohio! I’m so sorry for your loss! Nobody deserves to die like this! NOBODY!”
