She made the revelation in a recent chat with Entertainment Tonight. Millions of her fans were jolted when she was seen wearing a t shirt with the phrase “I’m Retired.

“People got triggered with that retired word,” Rihanna told Entertainment Tonight in an interview explaining the photo where she is seen wearing a t-shirt with the phrase, “I’m Retired.”

She continued, “They were like ‘We’re never getting an album now.’ No one read the other line, it was something about, ‘This is as dressed up as I get.’”

“I think that music, for me, is a new discovery,” she said. “I’m rediscovering things. I have been working on the album for so long that I kinda put all that stuff aside and now I’m prepared to go back in the studio. I’m gonna start — give me a second!”

Rihanna has been teasing a new album for years. In 2023, she talked about wanting to release it that same year and even said she had recorded new songs. Despite saying that with R9, she was “starting over,” she said she didn’t “want to neglect the songs that I have, so I actually want to go back and listen to stuff with new ears, with my new perspective and then see what applies and what I’m still in love with.”

The singer’s last studio album was 2016’s Anti. She has since released several singles, including “Lift Me Up” from the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack.

In another interview, Rihanna reiterated that she’s “not retired,” telling Extra, “I’m not retired. I just liked that dress. I got it as a gift and I loved it….”

Only recently the billionaire singer dismissed rumours that she and her partner, A$AP Rocky, are expecting their third child.

There have been reports in some section of the media that the Barbadian superstar is pregnant, for the third time, in three years.

But the mother of two thrashed the rumour but confirmed she would have more kids.

“I’m not pregnant, if that’s what you’re asking. But I would definitely have more kids,” she said.

Rihanna and her partner, A$AP Rocky, it will be recalled welcomed RZA on May 19, 2022 and then welcome their second child in August 2023.
