When it was introduced that Barbados singer and Savage X Fenty founder Rihanna was headlining the Tremendous Bowl Halftime Present, the net stratosphere exploded with theories that the look forward to a follow-up to her 2016 album Anti was coming to an finish. Nicely, the ever-elusive chanteuse isn’t utterly prepared to verify or deny whether or not that new music is coming earlier than the NFL season is over.
Amongst discussing her upcoming Savage X Fenty Present Vol. 4 (which has some odd alternative friends on the runway), Rihanna spoke to The Related Press about how her efficiency on the Tremendous Bowl in 2023 is totally unrelated to her dropping new tracks anytime quickly.

That “particular undertaking” appears to be one thing apart from The Black Panther: Wakanda Eternally soundtrack, which options Rihanna within the Chadwick Boseman devoted music “Carry Me Up,” her first music as a number one artist in six years.
Whereas some followers had been simply elated for even a style of the pop star’s vocals, the remainder of the Navy remains to be asking the age-old web query: The place is R9? The final we heard of the mysterious album was in 2019, when Rihanna confirmed to T: The New York Occasions Type Journal that her subsequent album could be reggae centered.
