Rihanna tells paparazzi that new music is coming “soon soon soon”

Rihanna will release her ninth album “soon soon soon”, at least that’s what she told the paparazzi. NME reports the pop star’s last album Anti, was released in 2016.  And since then she’s heavily teased new music, recently calling it “completely different” from her older work.

After remaining relatively quiet about her next material for most of 2021, the report says Rihanna was asked about when to expect new music by paparazzi as she exited a taxi.

“Any new music? Anything?” someone asked Rihanna in a clip, to which she simply responded: “Soon soon soon.”

Teasing her next material in September in an interview with Associated Press about her latest Savage X Fenty show, Rihanna said: “You’re not gonna expect what you

hear, just put that in your mind. Whatever you know of Rihanna’s not gonna 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.”

Rihanna released ‘Anti’ back in 2016. NME gave the record three stars upon its release, labelling it “a defiantly bangerless take-me-seriously-as-an-artist album that reveals new charms every time you spin it”.
