In the comments, a fan asked her to “celebrate by releasing a song !!”
The talented singer seemed open to the idea. She replied to the comment, writing “I think I should” and adding a “soon” emoji. “Just 1 tho lol,” she followed up.
In January, Rihanna celebrated the five-year anniversary of Anti’s release with a series of posts she shared on Instagram, including a video montage from some of her music visuals.
Expressing her gratitude for her supporters, the Fenty CEO wrote, “thank you navy! #5yearsofANTI #ANTIversary.”
Anti was Rihanna’s eighth studio album, and last thus far, as her fans continue to anticipate the nine-time Grammy-winner’s next release.
The Grammy-nominated album has seen incredible success since it came out in 2016, earning the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 album chart, garnering more than 15 billion streams, and selling more than 11 million copies. Fan-favorite songs on the album include “Work,” “Needed Me,” “Kiss It Better” and “Sex with Me.”
Though she has been out of the music business for a while, Rihanna has been focusing on other business ventures over the past few years — including her cosmetic brand Fenty Beauty and her lingerie line, Savage x Fenty.
