A new Rihanna album could be coming sooner rather than later.
A leading producer The Dream has revealed that Rihanna is “super-close” to finishing her next album.
RiRi has yet to release a follow-up album to 2016’s ‘Anti’ but the producer has announced; “She’s cooking, she’s about done. She’s about done. Super close,” in a new interview.
This update comes after fans hounded the singer with “When is the album dropping Robyn? Can we have a release date for that?,” to which she replied, “2019”.

Producer Kurk Harrell, who worked with Rihanna on ‘Anti’, also spilled some tea calling the latest body of work “incredible”.
He responded to a fan saying: “R9 is great. R9 is amazing. It’s incredible, And that’s all I’m going to say.”
Rihanna has spent the last 3 years focused on other ventures like cosmetic line Fenty Beauty and lingerie line Savage Fenty. However, fans are growing restless with one tweeting: “the world badly needs new music from rihanna”

However, the release date of 'R9' is yet to be confirmed.
