Rihanna knows the Navy is clamoring for R9, and on Thursday (May 14), the superstar couldn’t resist stirring the pot regarding the long-awaited LP.
It all started when RiRi posted a sultry cooking demonstration on her Instagram account. “The Jet Blacks are for life, but this Milky Way is sumn sexy,” she wrote, showing off the latest style of white Fenty sunglasses while chopping onions and tomatoes in a lacy black negligee and oversized jacket.
In the comments section, fans naturally peppered the star with questions about R9, and when one fan account demanded “WHERES THE ALBUM” in all caps, Rihanna cheekily wrote back, “I lost it” using a shrugging emoji.
The pop star has been teasing the existence of her long-awaited follow-up to 2016’s Anti dating all the way back to June 2018, when she confirmed in a Vogue cover story that the LP would be a reggae album. However, in the nearly two years since, details remain scant with no official release date for the project in sight.
Check out RiRi’s cooking demonstration and cheeky Instagram comment below.
