‘Can She Poke That Album Out Tho’: Rihanna Puts Her Clappas on Display, Fans End Up Asking About New Music

Island-born-and-raised singer Rihanna is setting social media ablaze with a steamy new Savage lingerie photo shoot.

The “Pon de Replay” singer posted up in a black mesh bra-and-panties set to mark her summer 2020 capsule collection with designer Adam Selman. Although her clappas may have been captivating to some, it did not stop fans from derailing the sexy picture with comments about music.

“Can she poke that album out tho ? 👀😭😭😭”

“She’s doing everything but releasing new music,” commented another.

While another follower awaiting new music wrote, “clap yo ass in that studio, Robyn. damn. 😩”

Fans of the singer even got a teaser of music with her March feature on singer Partynextdoor’s “Believe It.” But she remains largely mum on when any of her own music will make it across radio airwaves and streaming services.

“I don’t want my albums to feel like themes,” said the singer in an interview with British Vogue. “There are no rules. There’s no format. There’s just good music, and if I feel it, I’m putting it out.”

The multifaceted Barbados beauty has her hand in everything from makeup to perfume, acting and philanthropy.

While the singer has not dropped an album since “Anti” in 2016, she has been busy building her empire and giving back through her Clara Lionel Foundation.

The foundation supports and funds education and health and emergency response programs globally. Rihanna and CLF have assisted victims of hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.

Most recently her philanthropic efforts included purchasing ventilators for her home country during the COVID-19 pandemic, although Health Minister Lt. Col Jeffrey Bostic would later say the much-needed machines were held up in the United States due to export restrictions that needed to be worked out between the U.S. Embassy and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

But when she’s not creating multiple streams of revenue or finding ways to help out the world, it seems the 32-year-old is thinking about the future children she hopes to one day have. Even if that does not involve her being in a long-term relationship.

“I feel like society makes me want to feel like, ‘Oh, you got it wrong…’ They diminish you as a mother if there’s not a dad in your kids’ lives,” she told British Vogue. “But the only thing that matters is happiness, that’s the only healthy relationship between a parent and a child. That’s the only thing that can raise a child truly, is love.”
