On Wednesday, American Superstar, Rihanna teased her fans that she’ll ‘soon’ release a new song.
Rihanna was celebrating the milestone of being the ‘first black female artist to have an album spend five straight years on the Billboard 200.’
‘Grateful to the most High for putting die hard supporters in my circle,’ Riri – who boasts 330.1M social media followers – wrote of her eighth studio album Anti.
When an Instagram user suggested that The 33-year-old Bajan pop diva should “celebrate” her latest music milestone “by releasing a song!,” Rihanna replied, “I think I should” along with a “soon” emoji.
“Just 1 tho lol,” Rih was quick to clarify — meaning, it doesn’t look like the proper follow-up to ANTI is coming any time soon.
It was the first update the Fenty Beauty CEO has given about her long-delayed ninth studio album, R9, in months.

‘I am always working on music and when I am ready to put it out in the way that I feel fit, it’s gonna come out,’ Rihanna told ET last July.
‘You’re not going to be disappointed when it happens. It’s going to be worth it. I’m not just gonna put it out just because people are waiting. It’s taken this long, I’m gonna make it worth it.’
R9 is rumoured to feature her boyfriend A$AP Rocky, Savage X Fenty model Normani, Pharrell, Diplo, and a dancehall track called Private Loving with reggae artist Demarco.
And one year ago, the singer provided guest vocals on two-time Grammy-nominated rapper PartyNextDoor’s track Believe It.
The Grammy Award-winning singer has been focusing on her cosmetics company, coffee table book, and three-year-old lingerie line worth a reported $1B.
