The wait may finally be over for Rihanna fans, as Billboard is reporting that she's finally going to release the album this week. The report, which goes off of unnamed sources close to the singer, says that the album will drop as a surprise sometime before Friday. This is absolutely huge news, but not all that unexpected since she has a major tour with Travi$ Scott kicking off next month. The one remaining question about the album is what platform it will be released on, and if Tidal will be involved in any way.
In addition to the album news, Billboard is reporting that Rihanna's new single, "Work," featuring Drake is releasing in the morning on all iHeartRadio stations. If you remember, Drake and Rihanna were spotted shooting a music video together in California earlier this month, but it was never confirmed what they were working on. It's looking like a huge week for the RiRi Navy. Stay tuned for more details on the album as they become available.
