As the virtual parties continue online, celebrities are bored just like the rest of us and have no problem showing it. This was seen Tuesday (March 24) when Drake and Rihanna exchanged some hilarious words about Ri’s very long-awaited album.
It all went down during DJ Spade Muzik and #DJ Night Owl Sound’s Instagram Live battle. With both celebrities in the chat, Drake toys with Rihanna to drop her album R9 but says R12 instead. The businesswoman isn’t phased by Drizzy as she requests he get some water for his thirstiness.
While Rihanna’s new project isn’t named R9, the singer said she might use the title since her fans have labeled the mysterious album themselves.
“I’m about to call it that probably, ’cause they have haunted me with this ‘R9, R9, when is R9 coming out?’” she said in an interview with T Magazine. “How will I accept another name after that’s been burned into my skull?”
She previously explained the delay in the project–one being how her life is completely different from the presence of her successful beauty line to her philanthropic efforts.
“I used to be in the studio, only the studio, for three months straight, and an album would come out. Now, it’s like a carousel,” she said in an interview with Ocean’s 8 co-star Sarah Paulson. “I do fashion one day, lingerie the next, beauty the next, then music the next. It’s like having a bunch of kids and you need to take care of them all.”
What we do know is the new album is expected to have dancehall vibes and doesn’t include features from Drake or Shaggy.
