Although RiRi didn’t confirm the tour, she did confirm that her new album would be released sometime in 2019, and from the leak of her tour, it seems the new album will be release sooner rather than later.
According to Rolling Stone
The album has a strong dancehall feel, and Rihanna has “500 records for this project [from] different producers and writers,” but that she’s only chasing 10 songs for the release.
