Rihanna is “super close” to finishing her latest record

"She’s cooking, she’s about done."

A new Rihanna album could be finally around the corner, after a leading producer admitted that she’s “super-close” to finishing her next record.

The pop titan is yet to release the follow-up to 2016’s ‘Anti’, but  The-Dream says that she’s almost finished on her latest effort.

“She’s cooking, she’s about done. She’s about done. Super close,” he told HOT 97’s Ebro Darden.


The latest update comes after the singer practically confirmed that a new record will arrive at some point this year.

“When is the album dropping Robyn? Can we have a release date for that?,” wrote one fan on Instagram.

“2019,” Rihanna curtly responded.

Producer Kurk Harrell, who worked with Rihanna on ‘Anti’, has also spilt the beans – describing Rihanna’s latest as “incredible.”

The producer responded to one fan on Instagram : “R9 is great. R9 is amazing. It’s incredible, And that’s all I’m going to say.”
As well as music, it’s also expected that Rihanna’s fans will also get her most significant big screen turn in 2019 too. In 2018, it was revealed that Riri and Donald Glover co-star in a new film called Guava Island

The film trailer was shown at Glover’s PHAROS festival in New Zealand on November 24.

In the video, Rihanna, who stars as Glover’s girlfriend, walks into a room while he’s playing guitar. She says: “Practice is perfection.” Later, amid clips of street carnivals and other colourful montages, Glover says: “We live in paradise but none of us actually have the time or the means to live here.”

A release date for both projects is yet to be confirmed.
