Seems RiRi new album might be coming this year because a very reliable sources told DancehallHipHop that she is back in the studio and she is working on something with Sizzla. The Bajan pop star was spotted recently hitting up a studio in New York and we’re told she was locked down for hours recording new material.

Last year May, Rihanna recorded a new song with Buju Banton from previously recorded material the reggae star had in his arsenal. At the time she registered a new song name “Phatty” and was spotted out in NYC wearing a Buju Banton T-Shirt. She registered a second single titled “Only One Who Knows.” That’s the clearest sign yet that she has been working on her ninths studio album. So far there are no additional details but we have good intel that it might be coming later this year.

Rihanna released her eight album ANTI on January 28, 2016. The project was released exclusively on TIDAL before being available on all digital platforms. ANTI peaked at No. 1 in the United States and Canada and spent a milestone 100 weeks on the Billboard 200 chart. It’s been since certified double platinum by the RIAA. Despite not dropping an album in two years, RiRi was the most streamed female artist on Spotify last year. She even earned a number one song on the Hot 100 chart when DJ Khaled’s “Wild Thoughts” topped the chart last summer.

Rihanna previously worked with Sizzla on the remix for “Give Me A Try.” She has always been a huge fan of the reggae/dancehall legend and even named him as one of her all-time favorite artists. Aside from dominating the music scene, the “Wild Thoughts” singer has been busy building her fashion and cosmetics empire. Last year she released her Fenty Beauty line of cosmetics which includes 40 shades of makeup. The products sold out in a matter of hours after launch.

JAY-Z Will Not Be Performing At 2018 Grammy’s Despite Reports

JAY-Z will not be performing at this weekend’s 2018 Grammy Awards despite recent reports suggesting that he will.

Hov is going into the Grammys with the most nominations this year and everything assumed that he would be taking the stage possibly with Beyonce to perform “Family Feud” or even “4:44.” JAY-Z made a grand return to the music scene last year with his blockbuster album 4:44. That project is one of the most respected albums last year and will go down in history as one of the rap legend’s best body of work.

In the fall last year, JAY-Z went on tour to promote the album and that tour turned out to be his highest grossing solo tour ever. So it’s safe to say that he has been breaking new boundaries. Last week there was some reporting floating around online claiming that Hov will be performing at the Grammy’s, but now Hits Daily Double is countering those chatters with new reports that he has no plans to take the stage.

The Grammy’s has already announced an all-star lineup including acts like Bruno Mars, Rihanna, DJ Khaled, Kendrick Lamar, SZA, Childish Gambino and more. The last time JAY-Z performed at the Grammy’s was back in 2014 when he took the stage with Beyonce to perform “Drunk In Love: from her self-titled album. This year a performance on the big stage would be like icing on the cake for Jay’s fans given the success of his 4:44 album.

Bruno Mars and Cardi B will be performing their new hit “Finesse” while DJ Khaled and Rihanna will be performing their monster hit “Wild Thoughts. The Grammy Awards will be broadcast live on CBS from Madison Square Gardens in New York on Sunday night. Stay tuned to DancehallHipHop for more reporting on the Grammy’s, particularly the Best Reggae Album category. It will be interesting to see who win.
