‘I’m Trying to Save the World, Unlike Y’all President’: Rihanna Claps Back at Fan Asking About New Album

Rihanna is focused on one thing during the current pandemic, and it’s not dropping a new album. When fans continued to question the star about new music during a recent social media appearance, she answered in the most Rihanna way possible.

The singer and entrepreneur appeared on Fenty’s Instagram Live Friday night during her virtual Fenty Social Club party, where Lil Uzi Vert joined for a performance. During the session, fans tried to pressure the 32-year-old mogul for details about her new album, and after enough questions she fired back.

“If one of y’all motherf–kers ask me about the album one more time when I’m trying to save the world, unlike y’all president … on sight!” warned the “Love on the Brain” singer.

In spite of getting no news on the album, fans that joined the Live party were excited to turn up with the Bad Gal.

“This is the content we needed😂😂,” commented one fan during the session.

“Me love you long time, Robyn,” said another.

Rihanna’s Navy has been impatiently awaiting the release of a new album since her 2016 hit “Anti,” but she continues to play coy about an official title and drop date for the upcoming project, which fans are calling “R9”.

In the meantime, she’s been making good on her promises of being focused on giving back, having already donated millions of dollars toward COVID-19 relief efforts in the United States, Africa, and the Caribbean, including her home country of Barbados.

The Fenty founder recently made news for teaming up with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to send a $4.2 million grant to the Mayor’s Fund for Los Angeles to help domestic abuse victims in the city, courtesy of her Clara Lionel Foundation.

“The combined $4.2 million in funds will enable the Mayors’ Fund for Los Angeles to provide 10 weeks of support for victims of domestic abuse including shelter, meals and counseling for individuals and their children,” according to the Clara Lionel Foundation’s website.
