Rihanna is keeping her fans waiting just a little bit longer!
The singer, who hasn’t released new music since January 2016, continued to tease her followers about a forthcoming album on Friday.
In an Instagram Stories post, Rihanna, 30, kept the camera on herself as she held a wad of cash in her left hand. She then blew a kiss and smiled at the camera, adding a telling caption underneath.
“‘Where the album?’ ” she wrote, before quipping, “Me: sorry my connection poor”
The post comes just one week after Rihanna confirmed that a new album was on its way in the new year.
On Dec. 21, the pop star responded to a fan on Instagram who commented on her photo and asked when her new music would be released. In response, Rihanna kept it simple and wrote, “2019.”
The fashion and beauty mogul finally took a stand in October, sharing a creative meme on Instagram.
In September, Rihanna finally addressed where R9, as she’s referring to the forthcoming album, falls in her ever-growing list of creative priorities, including acting, her makeup company, Fenty, and charity work.
In response to a fan who asked, “where is the m.u.s.i.c. ???” on Instagram, she commented back, “I know I know sis. I’m doing music. Simultaneously doing lingerie, makeup, film, amongst a couple other things that I enjoy. when the music is ready, you won’t have to ask for it. But it’s coming. Just not today sis. I’m hype too tho, it can’t come soon enough for me.”

With eight Grammy Awards under her belt, fans first came to know her as a musician, but Rihanna recently earned high praise for her contribution to the beauty industry.
She was featured on the cover of Allure magazine’s Best of Beauty issue, a coveted spot she secured thanks to the launch of her inclusive makeup brand, Fenty Beauty in 2017. The company earned the loyalty of consumers who had previously struggled to find foundations that matched their skin tones.
