Rihanna Teases In-Studio Video, But There’s A Catch


The Fenty Beauty empress is mapping out a return to her music kingdom. On Friday evening (Nov. 9), Rihanna posted a video of her jamming out in a studio to what’s suspected to be new music. But no matter how frantically fans increased the volume on their tech devices, no sound blared through.

What’s assumed to be a tease on the Bajan artist’s part, the soundless post ignited fans’ anticipation for her ninth studio album. The project will be rooted in dancehall and reggae melodies, according to a July report by Rolling Stone. From the minds of producers and songwriters, the “No Love Allowed” singer amassed 500 records.

An unidentified producer revealed the award-winning artist’s camp might only select “10 records. They’ve been having writing camps and trying to keep them quiet for almost a year and a half now.” In 2016, Rihanna released her eighth studio album, ANTI, which immediately turned platinum less than 24 hours after its debut.

While Rihanna is pressing the gas on putting out fresh tunes, she had to put the brakes on the use of one of her hit singles at a Donald Trump rally. Earlier this week, Rih’s team sent a cease-and-desist letter to Trump’s organization to refrain from using her songs, like “Don’t Stop The Music,” at his events.

Broadcast Music Inc. (BMI), which oversees the 30-year-old entertainer’s music publishing, expressed in its letter that “any performance of Rihanna’s musical works by the Trump Campaign from this date forward is not authorized by BMI.”
