It's been over two years since Rihanna released ANTi, but she hasn't stayed out of the limelight. She was Spotify's most-streamed female of 2017 despite not releasing any solo music and only appearing as a guest on tracks from Future, DJ Khaled, Kendrick Lamar, and N.E.R.D., and Apple Music's most-streamed woman, too.
Months ago, we chronicled the journey to her upcoming album, dubbed "#R9" by waiting fans, but there haven't been many updates since. Until now.
While on Instagram trying to promote her upcoming lingerie line yesterday, a follower left a comment on Rihanna's post clarifying what she really needs from the singer: "We want fenty MUSIC."
Riri responded, promising, "She coming, sis!"
And when a second fan asked, "Did u forget about your music career?," Rihanna doubled-down, rhetorically asking, "HOW! Y'all would never let me Lolol."
