Rihanna got her fans all hyped up about her new album when she
posted a clip from inside her recording studio in London.
On Sunday night, LeBron James leads the Cleveland Cavaliers to a
historic Eastern Conference win over Boston Celtics. The Cavs
secured their place in the NBA finals making this LeBron’s eight
straight finals. Seems Rihanna felt exactly how most of us felt seeing
the heroic performance from King James to bring his team to three
consecutive NBA finals.
Rihanna is a huge fan of LeBron James so last night she posted a
clip from the end of the game on Instagram Live. Because she was in
her studio, she was watching the game from her laptop and seems she
couldn’t contain her excitement. While the onus of the video was to
share her excitement about the game, her fans quickly noticed the
background was actually her studio which means she is working on
new music.
A year ago, Urban Islandz reported that Rihanna is working on her
ninth studio album and a song with Buju Banton will be featured on
the project. The track that she registered is titled “Phatty” and
could be a sample of an old Buju Banton record.
Earlier this month, Rihanna did an interview with Vogue where she
confirmed that she is working on an all-reggae album for her ninth
project. The Bajan pop star didn’t divulge much details about the
pending album except to say that she is going back to her reggae
roots for this album.
Rihanna started her career as a reggae artist and soon
transitioned into Pop/R&B music where she went on to become a
global music and fashion icon. To date, RiRi is one of the biggest
selling artists in music’s history and even though she has not
released an album in over two years, her music is still selling more
than the vast majority of active artists.
