Rihanna who hasn’t released an album since 2016 is keen to move things up a gear during 2021 and has included her music in this too. She talked her future plans saying 2021 is a little unknown for everybody and nobody is sure what restrictions there are going to be. My creativity is within my control though and I want to take my music and my brands to a different level. Meanwhile, she promised her new album will be worth the wait.
