Rihanna Teases New Album On Instagram And Fans Are Beyond Excited: Rihanna hasn\u2019t released an album in nearly four years, and while the singer occasionally talks about working on new music, her focus has mainly been on her side projects, like her wildly popular makeup line and forays into fashion. But on Sunday, she threw music-lovers a bone by teasing her ninth album with a post on Instagram.\r\n\r\nAccording to Hollywood Life, the \u201cRude Boy\u201d singer posted a video showing an adorable dog bouncing around. In the background plays House of Pain\u2019s 1989 hit \u201cJump Around.\u201d She captioned the post with a tease referencing her new music.\r\n\r\n\u201cupdate: me listening to R9 by myself and refusing to release it,\u201d she wrote.\r\n\r\nRihanna has called the album R9 as a shorthand, as she did together with her previous albums R7, which was officially named Unapologetic when it had been released in November of 2012, and R8, which was ultimately called Anti when it had been released in January of 2016.\r\n\r\nFans and fellow celebrities were thrilled with the small tidbit.\r\n\r\nFashion designer Jeremy Scott called the singer a \u201ctease,\u201d and Lil Nas X and SZA liked the news. Vanderpump Rules star Katie Maloney-Schwartz appreciated Rihanna\u2019s sense of humor.\r\n\r\nOthers weren\u2019t so happy about the post. Some followers said that Rihanna was being petty et al. said that they were abandoning on their hopes of ever seeing a replacement album.\r\n\r\nThe post got over 8 million views and 96,000 comments in only eight hours.\r\n\r\nRihanna\u2019s last album dropped in January of 2016 with the No. 1 hit, \u201cWork,\u201d which featured her then-boyfriend Drake. The album ultimately went triple platinum, was lauded by critics, and received a Grammy nod. Since then, people are clamoring for a follow-up.\r\n\r\nBut rather than heading to the studio, the singer has been focused on her Savage x Fenty fashion line and her Fenty makeup business. Rihanna often features the brands in her social media, and every time, fans ask where the music is. On top of that, the Barbados native recently released a book featuring photos of and brought by her.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/www.instagram.com\/p\/B53M594HVZD\/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link\r\n\r\nIn August, Rihanna registered a new song, giving fans hope that a new album could be on the horizonas .
