Truth be told, Rihanna’s ANTI was undoubtedly one of last year’s sleeper hits; the project may not have achieved the certifications of its predecessors (hey, it still achieved a fair few Golds, so you can’t argue with that!), but from start to finish, we’d struggle to think of a moment where the collection became lacklustre. Therefore, it’s exciting to hear she’s back recording the follow-up.

Still untitled, there’s little known about Rihanna’s ninth studio outing, however one definite fact is that she’s been working with Alessia Cara, a point confirmed by the latter during a recent interview with JunoTV.

All signs are pointing to a 2018 release, but fans should expect to start hearing more news trickle through as the year unfolds.
