In a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, Rihanna sought to reassure fans who might worry that her billion-dollar brand Fenty may have sidelined her music career: “I am always working on music and when I am ready to put it out in the way that I feel fit, it’s gonna come out,” she said over video chat.

But I’m also really grateful to still be here and being able to expand into other ventures. I’m grateful. It’s been fun and I can’t even complain.”

Over 500 songs have reportedly been worked on for the reggae-themed R9, which include collaborations with Pharrell and Koffee. Shaggy was asked to audition to appear on the project, but didn’t.
