AceShowbiz - This year has already been shaping up to be good for Rihanna fans. After previously teasing her forthcoming album, the Barbadian beauty has finally given her devoted fans a snippet of her new music, though it was really, really short.
The snippet was posted through Instagram Stories on Sunday evening, January 6, showing Rih seemingly working on her music in a recording studio. She was soon posing in a galactic filter and singing a little bit before the camera panned to show off the recording consoles in front of her. A brief snippet of vocals then played in the background.
But before fans got to hear a little more, she reversed the camera on herself once again and playfully appeared to flash her middle finger.
Even though the snippet was really short, it was enough to drive her fans, who have eagerly waited for her new album, wild. Many of them shared a gif of someone taking off their wigs, with some others left gushing messages. One even declared that s/he already loves the upcoming music with a gif of Michael Jackson saying, "I love this song!"

"She is coming to save the pop industry from this mumble rappers," one fan said along with a gif of Mariah Carey emotionally clapping her hands. Another already predicted that the song would make it to music charts, saying, "A two seconds snippet coming to chart on Billboard Hot 100... are we surprised? Absolutely not."

Rih previously said that she would release her new album in 2019. She didn't give further details about the effort, though her vocal producer, Kuk Harreli, revealed in early December that the Fenty Beauty founder's new music is "incredible." The new album will be her first album in three years, following her 2016 record "ANTI".
