On January 27, 2020, Rihanna fans (that is, everyone we know) will have been officially waiting four years for a new singer album. Since then, they have been sweating, anticipating, and complaining in every corner of the Internet, about when they would see the 2016 follow-up. Anti.
Despite the countless rumors that say otherwise, 2019 came and went without a new Rihanna album (nicknamed “R9” by fans), although they got many drops of Savage X Fenty, magazine covers and a handful of memes mocking of the Navy for the lack of music. In the last days before 2020, Rihanna published that she had been listening to R9 herself, further fueling hopes. But the year came and passed, and with that any hope of new RiRi music.
Without a clear timeline on when the singer will really share her next album, we have put together a list of all the things Rihanna has done instead of releasing new music.
