Rihanna Is Releasing New Music “Soon” According To Radio 1 DJ
Well, this is surprising! Rihanna has a new single on the way, at least according to Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw. He spilled the news during a backstage interview at Radio 1’s Big Weekend. “I heard she’s got new music soon,” he told The Daily Star. The announcer couldn’t give specifics about the release date, however. “Well I don’t know… it’s the end of the year.” This comes after two new tracks were registered with ASCAP — “Phatty” featuring Buju Banton and “Only One Who Knows.” So much for those pregnancy rumors!
Given RiRi’s notoriously fast turn around between albums (she used to release annually), this kind of makes sense. After all, 18 months have passed since ANTI arrived in January, 2016. Since then, the Barbadian babe has kept busy with TV and film roles as well as a string of features including Mike WiLL Made It’s “Nothing Is Promised,” Future’s “Selfish” and Kendrick Lamar’s “LOYALTY.” You can read Nick Grimshaw’s full interview here.
