That Rihanna wait just won’t let up. The anticipation for RiRi’s eighth album tentatively titled R8 has been in the headlines since early 2014, when reports claimed producers DJ Mustard, David Guetta, Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins and Nicky Romero were working on the album. Since then additional artists have revealed they have also been a part of creating Rihanna’s upcoming record. The “Diamonds” songstress has been hard at work promoting her upcoming film and soundtrack for Home while her first single from the new era “FourFiveSeconds (Featuring Kanye West & Paul McCartney)” is still sitting pretty nicely on the charts. The only reasonable thing left to do is reveal the release date for this long awaited album (Ri’s last album “Unapologetic” was released in 2012, basically a decade in Rihanna time) right? Wrong!
RiRi teased her loyal Navy with a picture on Instagram showing Rihanna looking effortlessly beautiful and inspired by painter Frida Kahlo. Under the picture the caption #R8 #BBHMM #March26 can be read with a link to rihannaNOW.com that will most likely be down when midnight hits. Most believe this cover art is potentially for the next single “Bitch Betta Have My Money”. Some dreamers are hoping it’s the title of the record which means we’ll be hearing the album at MIDNIGHT. Either way I’m excited to see what’s to come from the bad gal who apparently has no intentions to return to her good ways (I’m sure good gal RiRi would’ve gave us a release date by now)…
Are you ready for the next taste of the upcoming era? Tell me your thoughts in those comments (Or carrier pigeon? I’m not picky)
