While Rihanna has been busy expanding her massive empire with Fenty Beauty, an upcoming clothing line and much more, fans of the singer have been begging and pleading for a new album for the past few years to no avail.

The singer has previously confirmed that a project is definitely in the works and that it will be rooted heavily in Reggae, but a release date or any other details were not given. Well now in a new interview, Riri has opened up a little more about her upcoming ninth studio album which she says will likely be titled ‘R9′ per her fans aka The Navy.

The 31-year-old dished on it during an interview with Times’ T Magazine. Check out the deets below via Billboard:

The multi-hyphenate says she remains hard at work on a reggae album, which remains without a release date, and admitted to be leaning toward R9 for the project’s title, since that’s all she hears from fans. “So far it’s just been R9, thanks to the Navy,” Rihanna stated. “I’m about to call it that probably, ’cause they have haunted me with this ‘R9, R9, when is R9 coming out?’ How will I accept another name after that’s been burned into my skull?”

RiRi would then go on to debunk a few internet forum rumors regarding possible star-studded collaborations on the horizon. There isn’t anything finished with Lady Gaga, but she wouldn’t rule something out for the future. “Maybe because she followed me on Instagram. It’s not in the books right now, but I’m not against it,” she said.

Rihanna also doesn’t see herself reuniting with Drake for the foreseeable future. “Not anytime soon, I don’t see it happening. Not on this album, that’s for sure,” she declared. The Anti artist then pondered the idea of one day releasing a greatest hits album. “I don’t know what my favorite album is — I’m sure if I put all my favorite songs together, it would be a really sick album. Maybe I should do that one day,” RiRi teased.

Items from her first Fenty/LVMH collection will debut through the Fenty online shop starting on May 29. “I want to be as disruptive as possible,” Rihanna explained of her business model. “The brand is not traditional. There is no runway show. It’s a new way of doing things because I believe that this is where fashion is going to go eventually.”
