Rihanna Says New Album Will Be Worth The Wait

Rihanna officially kicked off her next album cycle with the release of her Kanye West and Paul McCartney collaboration “FourFiveSeconds” back in January. With fans anxiously waiting for more details about the singer’s forthcoming eighth studio album, she shared that the release will be a departure from what anyone might be expecting.

“I’ve made a lot of songs that are just really, really big songs. From the jump, they just blow up,” she told MTV about the album. “And I wanted to kind of get back to – not that they weren’t real music, but I just wanted to focus on things that felt real, that felt soulful, that felt forever.”
