When will Rihanna release new music?

It’s fair to say fans have been gearing up for new music from the Barbados-born queen for a serious amount of time now, but her latest post has given fans a new wave of hope that it’s more imminent than we thought!

Taking to Instagram to share a compilation video celebrating her last album, ‘ANTI’ spending five full years on the Billboard 200, she penned a heartfelt message to her Navy, thanking them for their support.

She wrote: “Grateful to the most High for putting die hard supporters in my circle #Anti #WomensHistoryMonth congrats to everyone that contributed to this era, thank you team [sic].”

One fan took one for the team and asked what we were all thinking, writing: “Celebrate by releasing a song !!,” and Riri replied with the best news we’ve heard all year tbh.

The ‘Work’ songstress said: “I think I should soon,” adding in a separate comment, “just 1 tho lol [sic].”

Despite there being no official release date for the new bop (or more?!) just yet, Riri is known to surprise fans with new music without an announcement, so we’re keeping our fingers crossed for new Rihanna coming any day now!
