Rihanna takes time with album while unveiling lingerie line
LOS-ANGELES (AP). — Rihanna may be very busy with her lingerie line, but she still has to finish her album.
The multi-Grammy nominee is taking time to “experiment” with her new music.
” You won’t expect what you hear. You can just think that,” Rihanna stated before taping her “Savage X Fenty Show Vol. The “Savage X Fenty Show Vol. 3” event will air on Friday via Amazon Prime Video.
It’s been five years since the pop star released her critically acclaimed eighth album “ANTI,” which included hits such as “Work,” “Love on the Brain” and “Needed.” Last year, Rihanna said she had started recording new music, holding ” tons of writing camps.”
“Whatever you know of Rihanna is not going to be what you hear,” said the singer, who has won nine Grammys in multiple categories including R&B, dance and rap. “I am really trying new things. Music is fashion. You should be able play. I should be able wear what I like. Music is something I also value. So I’m having fun and it’s going to be completely different.”
Rihanna hasn’t announced a release date yet for her new album, but music plays a major role in her Savage X Fenty event. The event will feature her latest collection of fashion styles and will be filmed in Los Angeles.
The show, which was recorded in downtown Los Angeles, will feature performances by Nas and Ricky Martin as well as Jasmine Sullivan, Daddy Yankee, and Normani. Jeremy Pope, Erykah Badu, Vanessa Hudgens and Erykah Badu will be making special appearances.
Rihanna stated that she is excited to show off some of her favourite styles from the new collection.
” The cat suits, and the crotchless,” she exclaimed, blushing, before moving on. “All the bras that make me squirm, because I’m 33 now. They aren’t as good as they were. They’re not where they used to be. Rihanna wants to keep highlighting men of all sizes, shapes and colors in a similar fashion to how her line has lifted up women.
“Men are especially represented in the space of lingerie, loungewear, boxers, and briefs. … We will have men of all sizes and all races. We’re going to have men feel included as well, because I think men have been left behind in the inclusion curve.”
