Rihanna Insists Wait for Her New Album Will Be "Worth It"

,

Rihanna's next album is still just a fantasy at this point, but the singer says when it finally does become reality, the Navy will be glad she took her time. "When I am ready to put it out in the way that I feel fit, it's gonna come out. And you're not going to be disappointed when it happens. It's going to be worth it," RiRi told ET this week--although she still refused to make an official album announcement or reveal a release date. "I'm not just gonna put it out just because people are waiting. It's taken this long, I'm gonna make it worth it." She hasn't put on an LP since 2016's Anti; whenever her ninth studio album does arrive, it's expected to be titled R9.
