Rihanna denies reported album announcement details

Dash Radio's DJ Skee had claimed he would be announcing details of the release

Rihanna has denied the claim that details of her forthcoming eighth studio LP are ready to be announced.

The singer took to Twitter to hit back against a claim made by Dash Radio’s DJ Skee that he would be giving new information about the highly-anticipated release live on air.

Following Skee’s tweet, Rihanna posted a response stating “ANY news about #R8 will be delivered directly from me!!!!”

It was previously reported that the ‘Umbrella’ singer has ten new songs ready for her new record and that the LP could still be released before the end of 2014.

Skee was also quoted then on the release, stating, “That project is a lot closer than anyone realised, including her own record label. She’s trying to put out a project to capitalise off the fourth quarter.”


Rihanna’s last album was 2012’s ‘Unapologetic’.
