Rihanna has shared a new update on her long-awaited new album, dubbed “R9” by fans.

The Barbados-born artist last album entitled “ANTI” was released in 2016 and fans have been eagerly waiting for a new full-length project ever since.

In a conversation with Extra, Rihanna gushed, “It’s gonna be amazing,” when asked what exactly her loyal following, dubbed ‘The Navy’, can expect from her.

“It has to be,” she added. “That is the only reason it’s not out yet. If I’m not feeling it and I’m not feeling like it represents the evolution, the time I spent away. There should be a show of growth, right?”

She continued, “I want to play, and I feel like music is a playground, and I want to have fun with it and show truly where I am at.”

About potential guest features, she said: “I’m not a big collaborator… It has to be very intentional, so I’ll know when I have the record.”

Last week, on April 22, one of her biggest hits, “Diamonds,” reached a major milestone when the RIAA declared it reached diamond status, having surpassed 10,000,000 units sold.4,756
