Rihanna’s been driving her fans just a little crazy since it feels like forever that the “Work” singer has dropped off new music. We’re not talking features or collaborative tracks with Rihanna offering a verse to someone else’s song, but a full project by the singer for fans to really dive into. Not too long ago it was reported that Rih’s new tape is complete and now we have proof since a baby was given the first listen.
Rihanna’s right-hand woman, Jennifer Rosales – who also works as Fenty Corp.’s Project Manager – took her son to the studio to get a first listen of Rihanna’s upcoming album. We’re going to assume that his facial expression says it all: “Damn Rihanna, that’s what you got for the fans, they’re going to love it!”
We can’t say for sure if that’s what the baby is thinking, but we think it’s a safe bet.
The only other person we know who has had the privilege of listening to Rihanna’s tape is her vocal producer Kuk Harrell. A while back he jumped on Instagram Live and Fenty fans took their chance to ask how the tape was coming along. “R9 is great. R9 is amazing. It’s incredible, And that’s all I’m going to say,” he said.
