Barbadian singer, songwriter, fashion designer, actress and businesswoman, Rihanna, took to Instagram on Sunday to tease fans about her upcoming album.
She posted a video of a dog bobbing its head to the song, Jump Around by House of Pain and captioned the post, “Update: Me listening to R9 by myself and refusing to release it.”
According to CNN, R9 is the title of Rihanna’s next album, which she has been hinting about for a while now.
Check out the video below:
It’s been nearly four years since the Barbadian singer launched her last album, Anti. Since then, Rihanna has been juggling other projects such as her multimillion-dollar make-up line, Fenty Beauty and her newly launched lingerie range, Savage X Fenty.
Her fans were happy to know that the album is now finished. Her Instagram post gathered more than 2 million likes in the first six hours, and now has 10.3m likes and 108k comments.
Here are some of the comments from Rihanna's post:
ldochev: "Cmon it’s Christmas time... make that gift! "
charliesangelll: "Why you playing with us babyyyyyyy"
718biggyjozay: "All I want for Christmas is 1942 shots and a R9 tour "
jrgseul: "Thats why we love u bad bitch riri! Do it when u feel ready"
456moe: " Stop playing with the ppls ears and hearts! "
R9 is a reference to Rihanna’s ninth studio album. The singer told Vogue in October about her album. She said: “I like to look at it as a reggae-inspired or reggae-infused album.”
“It’s not gonna be typical of what you know as reggae but you’re going to feel the elements in all of the tracks,” she added.
“Reggae always feels right to me. It’s in my blood. It doesn’t matter how far or long removed I am from that culture, or my environment that I grew up in, I never leaves. It’s always the same high. Even though I’ve explored other genres of music, it was time to go back to something that I haven’t really homed in on completely for a body of work.”
