With virtually precisely a month to go till Tremendous Bowl LVII, all eyes proceed to level to Rihanna. Since her halftime efficiency was introduced in September, keen followers have been hoping to get their arms and ears on some new music. Whereas we did get an okay energy ballad for the Black Panther: Wakanda Eternally soundtrack again in October, Unhealthy Gal RiRi took a while to troll this morning with a primary teaser for her halftime efficiency on February 12.
Within the Apple Music-provided clip, Rihanna walks via a void of types towards the digital camera as voices of commentators bemoan the dearth of latest music from the pop famous person over the previous six (effectively, at this level, seven) years. Because the cacophony of voices reaches important mass, with any single voice indistinguishable from another, the commentary cuts out, and Rihanna’s 2016 single “Wanted Me” cuts in. The message is obvious: “You wanted me. Xoxo, Rihanna.”
Actually, it’s an honest troll. Rihanna has gotten more and more daring in vocalizing her indifference and occasional annoyance towards followers’ want and frequent entitlement to new music. Although she has hinted that she’s been engaged on one thing repeatedly since 2016, essentially the most we’ve gotten are a couple of singles, and he or she appears to have solely grown extra interested by promoting underwear and make-up within the intervening years.
As just lately as November, she reminded everybody that the “Tremendous Bowl is one factor, new music is one other factor” throughout a pink carpet look with the Related Press. She continued: “I knew, the second I introduced this, they’re gonna suppose my album is coming. I have to get to work. However I do have new music popping out. However we’ll see, we’ll see. Unrelated, however a particular undertaking.” Cryptic!
After all, it’s at all times doable that she is going to change her thoughts—she did change her thoughts about doing the Tremendous Bowl in any respect, in fact—and that some new observe will drop within the subsequent month. Hey, January 28 is the seven-year anniversary of Anti—there’s no time like the current, Rih.
