Prior to her dinner date with A$AP Rocky, Rihanna was reportedly spending time at a music studio in Brooklyn. 

It’s now been six years since she released her last studio album, Anti, in January 2016, that included the singles Work, Kiss It Better, Needed Me and Love On The Brain. Rihanna abandoned her previous radio-friendly dance songs for a more soulful sound and production that she felt was ‘authentic and liberating.’ 

Fans can expect another shift in her sound for the upcoming new record, which has included a lot of time-consuming experimenting. 

‘You’re not going to expect what you hear. Just put that in your mind,’ the Barbados native told Billboard last September.  

‘I’m really experimenting. Music is like fashion. You should be able to play. I should be able to wear whatever I want. I treat music the same way, the nine-time Grammy winner explained, adding, ‘So I’m having fun and it’s going to be completely different.’
