Singer takes to Twitter to rubbish rumours that her eighth LP will be appearing on Tidal

Rihanna has denied that her new album will be launching on Jay-Z‘s new streaming service Tidal tonight (March 30).

The singer took to Twitter this afternoon (March 30) after reports surfaced that the singer’s forthcoming eighth studio LP will be debuting on the service. She wrote:


Tidal will be launched at a press conference in New York later tonight at 5pm EST (10pm in the UK).

Kanye West, Beyoncé, Jack White, Rihanna, Madonna, Nicki Minaj and Coldplay have all changed their social media profile pictures to a turquoise square in support of the launch.

Rihanna performed her new single ‘Bitch Better Have My Money’ for the first time live it at the iHeartRadio Awards in Los Angeles last night (March 29).

It was recently revealed that the track was produced by West, alongside Roc Nation producer Deputy, Travis Scott and Wonda Gurl.

Rihanna is currently preparing to release her forthcoming LP, which will likely feature ‘Bitch Better Have My Money’, as well as the Paul McCartney and Kanye West collaboration ‘FourFiveSeconds’.

The singer has also said that she wants to work with Sam Smith.


She added: “He is so talented. It would be amazing to work with him.

“No matter how busy we are, when two artists want to work together they make it happen. He is such a beautiful songwriter, but more important than that, he is an absolutely beautiful person, and that comes across in his songs.”
