After five years of refusing to release new music, Barbadian pop singer Rihanna has (possibly) changed her mind, letting her followers know on Instagram that she could release a new song soon.

On Wednesday, celebrating the success of her latest studio album, “Anti,” she posted on Instagram to thank everyone who supported the 2016 project.

Her post highlights that “Anti” is now the first album by a black artist who has spent five years on the Billboard 200 chart.

She wrote this: “grateful to the Almighty for putting hard fans in my circle 🙏🏿 #Anti #WomensHistoryMonth 💪🏿 Congratulations to everyone who contributed to this era, thank you team.”

A fan commented on the post saying, “Celebrate by releasing a song !!” to which the “Job” singer replied, “I think I should,” followed by an “soon” emoji.

The singer then added, “only 1 to lola.”

On Wednesday, Rihanna’s vocal engineer, Cook Harrell, re-shared his celebratory post, saying, “We love you @badgalriri and I’m really honored to be a part of your royal journey for so many years!”

Rihanna commented on this post and wrote, “I need a session as soon as possible.” She subsequently wrote, “Let’s go !!!”

This isn’t the first time Rihanna has teased music from her ninth studio album, and fans often call her “R9”.

In December 2019, she posted a post on Instagram titled: “update: I’m listening to R9 myself and I refuse to post it.”

Rihanna also responded to two fans by asking for new music in April 2018 when she announced her new lingerie line.

In response to a fan’s requests for new music, Rihanna said, “she’s coming sis!”

When another fan asked if she had forgotten about her music career, the singer replied, “HOW! You would never let me Lolol.”

Meanwhile, since “Anti” was released in 2016, Rihanna has been building the Savage x Fenty lingerie line and her Fenty Beauty cosmetics brand.

These ventures proved successful for Rihanna, who was named the world’s richest musician in 2019 by Forbes.
