Rihanna got her fans all hyped up about her new album when she posted a clip from inside her recording studio in London.
On Sunday night, LeBron James leads the Cleveland Cavaliers to a historic Eastern Conference win over Boston Celtics. The Cavs secured their place in the NBA finals making this LeBron’s eight straight finals. Seems Rihanna felt exactly how most of us felt seeing the heroic performance from King James to bring his team to three consecutive NBA finals.
Rihanna is a huge fan of LeBron James so last night she posted a clip from the end of the game on Instagram Live. Because she was in her studio, she was watching the game from her laptop and seems she couldn’t contain her excitement. While the onus of the video was to share her excitement about the game, her fans quickly noticed the background was actually her studio which means she is working on new music.
A year ago, Urban Islandz reported that Rihanna is working on her ninth studio album and a song with Buju Banton will be featured on the project. The track that she registered is titled “Phatty” and could be a sample of an old Buju Banton record.
Earlier this month, Rihanna did an interview with Vogue where she confirmed that she is working on an all-reggae album for her ninth project. The Bajan pop star didn’t divulge much details about the pending album except to say that she is going back to her reggae roots for this album.
Rihanna started her career as a reggae artist and soon transitioned into Pop/R&B music where she went on to become a global music and fashion icon. To date, RiRi is one of the biggest selling artists in music’s history and even though she has not released an album in over two years, her music is still selling more than the vast majority of active artists.
