Here's Every New Project Rihanna Is Blessing Us With Very, Very Soon
Robyn Rihanna Fenty is an icon — there’s no arguing that.
Even when she hasn't released new music in over 6, going on 7 years, she's still a musician who's on everyone's minds. She's also a successful businesswoman, with her makeup and skincare lines and fashion line Savage X Fenty. She really can do it all!
Unfortunately for us, she's been staying away from the spotlight recently, and fans have been begging for new material from her ever since the first rumors of R9 started surfacing. But don't worry stans, the wait may be over.
In recent months, Rihanna has started announcing more and more projects, giving us all new hope for a new era for the singer. Here are some of the exciting Rihanna projects we can look forward to in the coming year!
A New Song on the 'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever' Soundtrack
It turns out the rumors were true, and Rihanna will be prominently featured in the soundtrack for Marvel Studios' highly-anticipated film Black Panther sequel film Black Panther: Wakanda Forever!
Entitled "Lift Me Up," the song (the first of the two that RiRi is reportedly singing on the soundtrack) is her first in years, and marks her big comeback to the music game! While it's not a full-length album (yet), the Navy will take what we can get at this point!
The first teaser for Volume 4 of Rihanna's already legendary Savage X Fenty Show is here! Starring the icon herself, Rihanna is serving face and body in the teaser for the lingerie line's annual fashion show. Last year's show had several queer stars walking, including Drag Race's Symone and Gottmik, Legendary judge Leiomy Maldonado, Pose alum Jeremy Pope, and singers Troye Sivan and Ricky Martin, so we can expect to see several more queer stars in this year's show. The Savage X Fenty Show will stream November 9 on Amazon Prime Video.
Back in September, Rihanna was announced as the Super Bowl Halftime Show headliner. This will be her first public performance since the 2018 Grammy Awards. She hasn't released any new music since her album Anti in 2016 and "Wild Thoughts" with DJ Khaled in 2017, so this is one of the most anticipated Super Bowl Halftime shows of all time. The Super Bowl takes place February 12, 2023.
Rumor has it that Rihanna could be returning to the touring life! According to news and rumor site Hits Daily Double, Rihanna is one of several superstars who are planning stadium tours in 2023. Insiders think that her Super Bowl performance will be a launching platform for this tour.

A New Album
This is what we're all really waiting for. Over the last several years, RiRi has teased that she's been working on new music, and rumbles that she's been in the studio have been louder than ever lately. Will she finally release her fabled ninth studio album in 2023? We love RiRi, but we're not holding our breath on this one -- we'll believe it when we finally hear it!
