Rihanna: "When the music is ready, you won’t have to ask for it..."

Rihanna is hard at work on her ninth studio album. She's also been prioritizing her brand and business empire in film, lingerie and make-up. She told a fan on Instagram that her new album (which is widely reported to be very dancehall-driven) is coming along. 

Yeah yeah, I know she's saying a load of NOTHING right now and "soon" could mean any where between now and next year, but it's something right? Hopefully, the roll-out for R9 trumps the appalling way her last project was handled. But until Rihanna is ready to provide the banquet, we will just have to settle for bread crumbs.
