Rihanna has resumed her career in the music industry, but this does not indicate that she will be putting out a new album in the near future.
The singer stated that she still needs to “go to work” on her ninth album, but that for the time being, she is concentrating on getting ready for her appearance at the Super Bowl Halftime Show in 2023. The interview was conducted by The Associated Press.
“The Super Bowl is a separate event. Something else entirely is new music. Fans, do you pick up on that? “— I quote her.
In addition, she stated in an interview with Entertainment Tonight that the program will “honor the music that I’ve made.” She went on to say that she “can’t believe” that she accepted the commission, and she described the halftime show as “an entertainer’s fantasy.”
She told Reuters the following about how she is feeling in the days leading up to the performance in February 2023: “I’m excited to take on this task that I was eager to undertake, and I can’t wait to get started on it. This is going to be the most challenging job I’ve ever taken on in my whole professional life, and it will require a lot of hard work.”
Rihanna has taken a break from the music industry for the past six years; her most recent album, titled Anti, was released in 2016. Her appearance during the Super Bowl halftime show will mark her comeback to the stage.
Just one month ago, the pop artist released her first single since the sabbatical, which was “Lift Me Up,” which was included on the soundtrack for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. She also produced a stunning music video to accompany the single, which saw her walking along the beach at sunset while wearing an ivory corset gown made of silk. The song is intended to be a musical tribute to the late actor Chadwick Boseman, who played the superhero in the first Black Panther blockbuster film. The character was originally represented by Chadwick Boseman.
