It's finally happening - RiRi is dropping new music.
Rihanna fans, the wait is over. The multi-hyphenate is finally returning to the music scene with her first solo releases in six years (!!) for not one but TWO new songs on the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack.
The Marvel franchise teased the new music in a video posted to social media on Tuesday, with the date '10.28.22' emerging onto the screen alongside a letter 'R', which we can take as a hint towards Rihanna's initials.
The 34-year-old singer released her last studio album ANTI back in 2016, and hasn't released a single since her joint track 'Believe It' with PARTYNEXTDOOR in 2020.
Rihanna, who welcomed her first child, a son, with boyfriend A$AP Rocky earlier in May this year, was recently announced as the 2023 Super Bowl Halftime Show headline performer, sparking rumours that a new record was indeed on the way.
Speculation of a potential tour next year also kicked off as fans anticipated Rih's long-awaited musical comeback. She last went on tour in 2016 in support of ANTI, and did 71 shows across the world.
One thing's for sure - we are READY!
