It looks as though the wait for a follow-up to Anti may soon be over. Rihanna has confirmed that she will be releasing her new album next year. The 30-year-old singer, who has been missing from the music scene for almost three years, dropped the news on Instagram on Friday.
She was interacting with a fan who commented on the post of her new Fenty product. The user asked her, â€œBut when is the album dropping Robyn (singerâ€™s first name)? Can we have a release date for that?â€ To which Rihanna replied: â€œ2019â€.
Check out the Instagram post below.
The singer dropped her latest and eighth studio album, â€˜Antiâ€™ on January 27, 2016.
Her vocal producer Kuk Harrell teased the new album earlier this week, promising itâ€™s â€œincredibleâ€ and â€œamazingâ€ before adding that â€œthatâ€™s all Iâ€™m going to say.â€Rihannaâ€™s last album, ANTI, came out in 2016.
The singer has been especially busy since then. In September, she unveiled her Savage X Fenty line at New York Fashion Week.Â
