The 31-year-old 'Work' songstress spoke to T Magazine ahead of the debut collection of her high fashion clothing line, Fenty. During the interview, she dropped a few hints about her ninth album.
Rihanna confirmed that the new record will be a "reggae album," before stating that despite rumors and high anticipation on the album, two things haven't been decided yet - the release date, and the album title.
The Fenty Beauty entrepreneur referenced the affectionate name her loyal fans, The Navy, have given the album and confessed that she's thinking about calling it that very name.
"So far it’s just been 'R9', thanks to the Navy," she said. "I’m about to call it that probably, ’cause they have haunted me with this “R9, R9, when is R9 coming out?” How will I accept another name after that’s been burned into my skull?" she had said.
Elsewhere during the interview, Rihanna also addressed rumor of a highly-anticipated track alongside her former collaborator - and ex-boyfriend - Drake.
"Not anytime soon, I don’t see it happening. Not on this album, that’s for sure," she said. So, looks like there's no hope of 'Work Pt. 2' in the near future, then.
