Pop sensation, Rihanna is already working on her ninth body of work with plans to make it a full reggae album.
The “Work” singer hinted this while speaking with Vogue’s Chioma Nnadi for the magazine’s June 2018 cover.
Vogue’s Chioma Nnadi revealed this in the feature article for the magazine’s June 2018 issue which had the “Work” singer as cover star.
Nnadi wrote, “With her next record—her ninth—Rihanna is moving the needle on her creative output all over again: She plans to make a reggae album.”
She went on to name producer Supa Dups, who produced her “Too Good” song featuring Drake in 2016 and Bob Marley as some of the influences.
She wrote, “Though it’s too soon to name a full list of collaborators, one early influence may be Supa Dups, the Jamaican-born record producer who has worked with such dancehall greats as Beenie Man, Sean Paul, and Elephant Man. If Rihanna had to name her favorite reggae artist of all time, though, it would have to be Bob Marley.”
Rihanna’s last album “Anti” was released in 2016. And although, it’s been two years since she released the 13-track body of work, she has continued to break records and dominate charts.
In March, she was named the first female artist ever to surpass two billion streams on Apple Music.
