UPDATE // SEPTEMBER 15:
Rihanna is work work working hard on her empire right now, but no matter how hard she tries she can’t escape The Navy’s pleas for new music.
At Rih’s Diamond Ball gala, a reporter told Rih at the end of their interview: “The Navy needs new music.”
The singer’s response was hilarious. “Oh girl… who sent you?!”
Her reaction is funny, but also sad cause it sounds like we’re nowhere near getting to hear the new tunes.
UPDATE // JUNE 19:
Rihanna confirms her new music is on the way!
Living for Rihanna’s new interview on the The Graham Norton Show.
Her Ocean’s 8 co-stars (minus Sandra Bullock) were acting like they weren’t in the presence of her majesty.
Especially Sarah Paulson – Rihanna seemed especially peeved by her, and I am living for it.
The good news: yes, Rihanna is in the studio right now. The bad, there’s no release date in sight.
Definitely give this a play:
UPDATE // JUNE 8:
This isn’t much, but the thirst is real and we’ll take what we can get.
Rihanna was asked about her new music on a red carpet this week, and she low-key seems over it, but said it’s in the works.
Rihanna on new music. 😂

Save music 2018, Rih!
EARLIER // APRIL 27:
My body is ready for whatever Rihanna is cooking up for us. The singer confirmed in an Instagram comment that her new tunes are coming.
A fan commented on one of Rihanna’s recent posts advertising her new lingerie line Savage X Fenty, saying “we want Fenty MUSIC.”
That triggered Rihanna to respond: “she coming sis!” I’m moist.

The news comes on the heels that Riri is reportedly recording two albums for release – one that is pop/radio friendly, and the other more experimental. Read more about that here.
This is the most important story you’ll read today! Well, second. ABBA just mentioned they’re reuniting.
