Rihanna has been in and out of the studio having released three singles off her 8th studio album dubbed R8. In January Rih released the acoustic themed FourFiveSeconds with the help of music legend Paul McCartney and Hip-Hop star Kanye West, the track eventually peaked at #4 on the hot 100 charts, she went to release two other singles “American Oxygen” and ‘Bitch Better Have My Money” which didn’t perform well on the charts even after they were performed live at The Grammys and Saturday Night Live.
Its been 8 months since the first single FourFiveSeconds was released and no title or album release date has been given. News has been swirling around that Rihanna has scrapped the materials previously recorded due to poor chart performance and is back in the studio recording new material.
Fans have deemed the album a flop tagging it #RL8, some suggest she releases whatever material she recorded and flop while she moves on to R9.
