On Thursday, RiRi went to Instagram to acknowledge her diehard supporters’ craving for new audio content.
Back in July, speculation developed about Rihanna possibly piecing together a dancehall album to follow up 2016’s Anti.
It’s common for stars at Rihanna’s level to cull the best demos from reams of submissions when selecting songs for albums. “[Rihanna’s team] have, no lie, 500 records for this project [from] different producers and writers,” explains one dancehall producer who asked to remain anonymous. “They’re only choosing 10 records. They’ve been having writing camps and trying to keep them quiet for almost a year and a half now. I’ve been flying to Miami, flying to L.A., cutting records nonstop for this project.” (Rolling Stone)
The source also said Rihanna’s team had practically reached the finish line in completing the project.
“Every artist, every producer, every songwriter in Jamaica or of Jamaican descent has been working on [Rihanna’s album] and has little snippets of publishing or production credits on it,” another source close to the project says. “I think they’ve got eight songs,” he continues, “but her A&R is still asking for records.” “They’re looking for one more [song],” adds a third source with knowledge of the album-making process.

A few months ago, Rihanna joked and gave clues about possibly having a new album in the works.
