In the latest edition of Vogue, the cover star shared details of how reggae influences her impending new music.
She stated “I like to look at it as a reggae-inspired or reggae-infused album,” the Bajan Queen explained, without confirming a release date. She added”It’s not gonna be typical of what you know as reggae. But you’re going to feel the elements in all of the tracks.”
Asked why it feels right to put out a reggae body of work, RiRi elaborated: “Reggae always feels right to me. It’s in my blood. It doesn’t matter how far or long removed I am from that culture, or my environment that I grew up in; it never leaves. It’s always the same high. Even though I’ve explored other genres of music, it was time to go back to something that I haven’t really homed in on completely for a body of work.”
Rihanna then went on to confirm that she’ll never give up on releasing music, despite a successful career as the founder of her Fenty Beauty fashion and make-up collections. She said: “Oh, nooo. Me the designer, me the woman who creates makeup and lingerie—it all started with music. To cut that off is to cut my communication off. All of these other things flourish on top of that foundation.”
