On Thursday (Nov. 4), the “Love On The Brain” singer took to social media to announce the news, tweeting, “The RIH ISSUE. Cop these limited edition color vinyl + exclusive merch sets before dey gon!!! Pre-order now at ri-hanna.io/rihissue.” She also shared a visual that included each of the unique vinyl records that are colored in correlation to their original album covers. Each vinyl will come with an exclusive T-shirt or hoodie that relates to the LP. Prices range from $100 to $140 for each set.
Fans will be able to enjoy all of Rih’s classic hits from her debut studio album Music of the Sun to her most recent project Anti, which dropped back in 2016, as they continue to wait patiently for her ninth album to drop.
Back in September, the Bajan beauty shared details about her new music, which she says will be “completely different” from her previous work. “You’re not going to expect what you hear,” she told the Associated Press. “That’s — just put that in your mind. Like, whatever you know of Rihanna is not going to be what you hear. I’m really experimenting and music is like fashion — you should be able to play. I should be able to wear whatever I want and I treat music the same way. So, I’m having fun and it’s going to be completely different.”
Last year, Rihanna said she started recording new music and held “tons of writing camps.” She even hinted at a possible collaboration with the City Girls. However, no official release date has been announced for the project.
Until then, the “Umbrella” singer is working hard to expand her Fenty empire, which already includes Fenty Beauty and the Savage X Fenty lingerie brand. She is also reportedly planning to launch Fenty hair products.
