Rihanna Reveals “R8″ Album Release Is Delayed Because of Kanye West?!


Despite dropping several chart-topping singles, Rihanna’s navy has been waiting tirelessly for a new full album from the Bajan singer.


However, no matter how many song snippets the 27-year-old posts to her Instagram, she maintains that her fans, unfortunately, will have to keep on waiting.

In her cover story interview for the debut issue of NME magazine, the “BBHMM” singer explains that her album isn’t going to be ready for consumption until she thinks it’s perfect… which can take a while.


“It’s not done!” she said of the album. “To me it’s never done until it’s done. Until the final moment.”


Rihanna also reveals that while her fan base can be pretty rabid about the upcoming album, it makes her all the more excited to make their wait worthwhile.


“No matter what I post online, within three comments there’s somebody saying, ‘Where is ‘R8’?’ I could post anything. Nothing else matters. They don’t care about anything but that,” she joked. But it makes me excited, because I can’t wait to give them something great.”

The album’s executive producer, Kanye West, could also have something to do with the delay.


“We just have to wait to get back in the studio together,” RiRi shares. “His schedule and mine are totally opposite right now, but I think this month we’ll be back in the studio.”


Hopefully now that Kanye unveiled his second clothing line at NYFW he can head back to the studio and give bad gal RiRi’s fans the music they’ve been waiting for.
