Since the release of Anti in 2016, Rihanna fans have been eagerly awaiting her new album. Announced for many months as a reggae-inspired disc , it is not ready to be finished due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The singer, who has been working in the studio for the past few months, has indeed interrupted the creation of her new album to, according to her words, “save the world” in this period of international crisis:
“If one of you talks to me about the album again while I’m trying to save the world, unlike your president … [Donald Trump, Editor’s note”, said the singer in a mocking tone during from a live on Instagram.
