On Wednesday, Rihanna confirmed to Vogue that the album is still happening, and that it is still "reggae-inspired."
"It will not be typical of what you know as reggae. But you will know the elements of all the tracks," she told the publication.
As for the release date, she doesn't speak.
Rihanna also recently rejected the Super Bowl half-time show in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick, who started kneeling during the national anthem to protest against racial justice in America.
"I couldn't dare do that. For what? Who wins it? Not my people. I just couldn't be a sales person. I couldn't be a facilitator. There are things within the organization that I don't agree with at all, and I wasn't about to go to service them in any way, "Rihanna told Vogue.
She told the magazine that Although it has been a minute since she released new music, she will not finish it soon.
"Music is like talking in code to the world, where they get it. It's the weird language that connects me to them. … To interrupt it is to turn off my communication. All these other things flourish on top of it. the foundation. "
Rihanna has been busy in recent years. She was featured in the movie "Ocean's 9" last year, and she has worked seemingly non-stop on her fashion and makeup line.
