Rihanna Poses For ‘T’ Magazine, Gives An Update On ‘R9’
It goes without saying that anticipation is sky-high for Rihanna to drop her ninth studio album. However, according to a new interview with The New York Times’ style magazine T, even she isn’t sure exactly when it will arrive. On the bright side, her new Q&A offers a couple more details about the project. In it, the 31-year-old icon again confirms the LP in inspired by reggae. She also teased a title, and it is one the Navy is already familiar with – R9. “I’m about to call it that probably, ’cause they have haunted me with this ‘R9, R9, when is R9 coming out?’ How will I accept another name after that’s been burned into my skull,” she said.
That’s not all. The “Work” diva also commented on rumors of a Lady Gaga collaboration. Nothing is in the works right now, but it’s something she’d be open to in the future. Fans also shouldn’t expect a duet with Drake on the new album. The interview is peppered with a couple other highlights about her music and fashion projects. And the accompanying photoshoot is just as fierce. Posing for Kristin-Lee Moolman, the always fashionable legend serves fire in every frame.
