Currently Rihanna is working on her next studio album, and while there is no current release date, we do know it’s getting closer. She did reveal a bit about the forthcoming project during the announcement she will be performing at the 2023 Superbowl Halftime show saying;

“If I’m going to leave my baby, I’m going to leave my baby for something special,” the Grammy-winning singer said. On agreeing to perform for the annual football showdown, she said, “It was now or never for me.”

She added, “The second that I announced this, I said, ‘Oh my god, they’re going to think my album is coming. I need to get to work, Super Bowl is one thing. New music is another thing. Do you hear that fans?”

She currently has two tracks that feature on the Black Panther 2 soundtrack. “Lift Me Up” was the first song off the soundtrack to be released, and it marked Rihanna’s first solo music since her 2016 studio album, Anti. An R&B ballad, “Lift Me Up” was written and produced by Ludwig Göransson, with additional writing from Rihanna, Ryan Coogler, and Nigerian singer Tems. It was a moving tribute to actor and star of the original ‘Black Panther’ film Chadwick Boseman.

Rihanna’s second single in six years, was “Born Again,” which she released on the premiere day of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. The single was co-written by The-Dream, James Fauntleroy and producer Ludwig Göransson.

Things don’t stop there though for the powerhouse that is Rihanna, earlier this week, the singer also premiered her Amazon Prime Video special, Savage X Fenty Show Vol. 4. to showcase her latest lingerie pieces. The fashion program included appearances from Burna Boy, Don Toliver, Maxwell, Johnny Depp, Taraji P. Henson, Taylour Paige and much much more.
