And while whispers and rumors of new music have bubbled up here and there for years, on Wednesday (March 24) the singer gave fans some real hope that fresh tracks could be just around the corner or single track.
In a post thanking her fans for their unwavering support over the years, RiRi opened the door a crack. “Grateful to the most High for putting die hard supporters in my circle,” she wrote alongside a prayer hands emoji and hashtags for the album and Women’s History Month. “Congrats to everyone that contributed to this era, thank you team.”
That was cool, but it’s what happened next that blew minds. When a fan suggested she, you know, drop a new song to celebrate even more, Rihanna responded in the Instagram post’s comments, “I think I should soon… just 1 tho lol.” That, of course, sent her fans off the deep end of excitement.
The tease came after a New Year’s Day fan suggestion that Rihanna should make a resolution to release her long-awaited ninth studio album, to which she responded “2021 Energy” which, again, set propellers spinning out of control.
So that’s about that. Hopefully the singer keeps to her words and releases new music this year, as this is not the first time she is seen teasing new music.
