Rihanna recently announced that she’s working on a reggae album, and when asked about rumors of her working with Drake on another collaboration, Rihanna made it clear that it wasn’t going to happen. She responded to questions about a Drake collaboration by stating, “Not on this album, that’s for sure. Not anytime soon, I don’t see it happening.”
She also hinted at the name for the project, “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?”
This comes after Rihanna spoke to Vogue last year about the status of her relationship with Drake, revealing, “We don’t have a friendship now, but we’re not enemies either. It is what it is.” She also famously dodged a kiss from Drake while presenting him with MTV’s Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, sparking rumors of a rift.
