Rihanna’s been talking about her long-awaited next album at the launch of her 7th fragrance: RiRi by Rihanna.
“Every album is like a new era, a new story to tell, a new chapter of your life. I’m also working on a lot of other projects, so there are a lot of babies now, not just the album. But we have never stopped working on it. I can’t wait to put it out.”
Via AP: Rihanna says she’s thrilled to have had a decade-long career in music and she plans on celebrating the feat at some point this year.
“Definitely a very big deal for me. You know, I can’t believe it’s 10 years already, but we definitely have to celebrate this year,” the singer said during an interview Monday. “There are a few things I have in mind, so you’ll have wait on that, but don’t think I’m forgetting because this means a lot to me that I made it to 10 years.”
Rihanna released her debut album, “Music of the Sun,” in 2005. The 27-year-old has released seven albums, launched multiple Top 10 hits and won eight Grammy Awards. This year she’s dropped three singles, including the Top 5 hit “FourFiveSeconds,” and says she’s busy working on her eighth album.
“New album is going really, really great. We have recorded a lot of songs and I can’t wait to finish and put it out. That’s my next step,” she said.
Rihanna made the comments at Macy’s in downtown Brooklyn at the launch of her new fragrance called RiRi. Feverish fans screamed inside the packed store, singing her lyrics to past hits and dancing wildly as one of her songs blasted from from speakers.

“I know I made a great decision coming to Brooklyn because Brooklyn fans are on another level,” she said. “They are full of energy and they’re loud and I like that. They’re going to turn up in here today.” The singer said Ri Ri is the first of a new trilogy of fragrances. She’s had more than a half dozen other fragrances in the past. “I intentionally wanted to do something fun, something that made you feel young, flirty, you know, cute,” she said with a smile. “It’s like a brand new pair of shoes.”
Via Refinery29: For those dreaming of a Rihanna beauty line, you’re going to get your wish — and soon. In an interview for Rihanna’s new fragrance, RiRi, we asked her about Fenty Beauty, a trademark the pop star quietly registered for last year. Could it be that she’s actually putting together a cosmetics line?
“Oh wow, that’s crazy, how did you know that?” she asked. “That is definitely something I am going to have my hands on and would love to do. It’s something that I’ve always wanted to do, but I’ve always had so much on my hands. But, this time, I’m going to make sure it happens. I’m going to find some time between albums and fragrance to do that. I promise.”
Cue. The. Freakouts. Knowing Rihanna is a beauty lover, we asked her what fantasy makeup products she’d love to invent.

Rihanna’s brand new song has been released on iTunes & Google Play today and once again she proved nobody can pass unbothered by her new music release. Make sure to read some of the reviews of the song!
“Bitch Better Have My Money” is designed to make clubs rumble and arenas explode, and will successfully do so over the next year and beyond. A more imaginative hook would have been nice, but Rihanna is not playing nice here.
The grinding, trap-infused track, produced by Deputy, follows up “FourFiveSeconds,” her collaboration with Paul McCartney and Kanye West, and is a drastic shift from that song’s gentle, acoustic tone. “Don’t act like you forgot I call the shots,” asserts Rihanna on the confident club banger

It’s a world away from the gospel-tinged campfire folk of the album’s first single, Kanye West/Paul McCartney collaboration “FourFiveSeconds.” This one is hypnotic, thudding, and confident, but the core’s the same: her voice, which seems to be reaching new heights.
The hard rhythm makes the most of Rihanna’s Caribbean accent, an intonation she has often relied on as a hook when all else fails. The Kanye connection in the song makes sense.
