It’s been a pretty busy year for new music. Selena Gomez dropped an album, Justin Bieber dropped an album, Demi Lovato released a new song. Adele confirmed that a new album is coming in September. Basically everyone except Rihanna.
We all know Ms. Robyn Rihanna Fenty is a busy woman running her own cosmetics, lingerie, and clothing lines. But her fans just want new music from Rih! It’s been more than 4 years since Rihanna’s last album, Anti. So fans are kind of losing their patience at this point, especially when Rih teases:
But then out of nowhere, Rihanna appeared in her first music feature in PartyNextDoor’s song “Believe It” on their new album, Partymobile. Rih only shows up for about 30 seconds on the song, but it’s the first time we’ve heard her voice on a recorded track since she sang a verse on N.E.R.D.’s 2017 single. “Lemon.” Rihanna shared the newly released single on Twitter and Instagram.
Let it be known that Rihanna revealed earlier this year that she likes to have fun with her fans who are anxiously awaiting new music. She cheekily told Entertainment Tonight that she gets a kick out of keeping her fans in the dark.
“To be continued,” Rihanna told E.T. in reference to her album. “I like to antagonize my fans a little bit. Well, they antagonize me, too! So, they get it right back.”
