Rihanna teased another 9th album on Instagram! The singer took to Instagram to celebrate the album ‘Anti’, which has been on the Billboard 200 list for 5 years.
Rihanna Fans have been patiently waiting for a ninth album, and the 33-year-old just teased that she might be releasing some new songs soon! It all started when the singer celebrated an incredible and historic milestone on Instagram for her last album Anti, which came out in January 2016. Her eighth album has now spent five years on the Billboard 200 chart. She is the first black female artist to ever hit the target. She posted the news as well as a compilation video from her tour to celebrate.
“I am grateful to the Most High for welcoming die-hard supporters into my circle… #Anti #WomensHistoryMonth
Congratulations to everyone who contributed to this era, thank you team, ”she wrote. The fans flooded their comment section with applause and wrote: “Celebrate by releasing a new song !!” The post did not go unnoticed by the designer Savage x Fenty and wrote: “I think I should”, then “only 1 to lol” . Over 700 followers liked and commented back and asked them not to “annoy” them. “Girl u betta” and “Please drop the album” begged others.

This isn’t the first time RiRi – who just bought a new $ 13.8 million mansion in Beverly Hills – teases R9. “I can’t wait to bring out something I’m really proud and excited about,” she told Access in July 2020, shortly after falling Fifty skins Line. “It will probably be sooner than my fans think, but I’ll just leave this alone because I have enough stress, questions and ‘R9, when is the album coming … they won’t leave me alone!” She added.
She also revealed that she felt similar pressure from her fans – aka Rihanna Navy – before dropping Anti (previously fans had waited four years after Unapologetic was released in 2012). “My fans, they want it and they want it now,” she continued. “And I remember exactly when I did anti. It was my first day in the studio, the first day that you are still very early in the discovery phase, right. A paparazzi brought me into the studio and after that they thought my album would be out this week, ”she recalled.

At the beginning of Rihanna’s career, she dropped her albums one after the other: Music of the Sun fell in 2005, followed by A Girl Like Me from 2006 – the spawning hit “SOS”. 2007 brought a whole new year with “Umbrella” and Good Girl Gone Bad. Her next four albums, Rated R, Loud, Talk That Talk and Unapologetic, fell consecutively from 2009 to 2012 with a gap of four years before Anti.
Of course, Rihanna has been busy successfully launching Fenty Beauty and Skin as well as Savage X Fenty Lingerie with several other business activities in recent years. Rihanna has also unveiled the first new LVMH clothing line, Fenty, in years – but the house was recently announced for a hiatus. “I used to make an album in three months, but now I don’t have the luxury of doing that because I have another baby,” Rihanna also told Access, referring to her other endeavors.
