Rihanna Landing With Smiles At JFK


Rihanna may have been able to hide herself at Winter Wonderland, managing to chomp down on hot dogs and churros at the Hyde Park attraction without a soul noticing it was her. However she couldn’t go unnoticed while arriving in New York City.

The 31-year-old was pictured arriving at JFK Airport dressed in black trousers, trainers and a cosy black coat. The popstar accessorised with a Celine tote bag, braided hair and dark shades – however even with those sunnies on, Rihanna couldn’t avoid being spotted.

The Work singer was all smiles as she walked through the airport, and we know that grin… … It’s the grin of someone who knows full well they’re holding an album hostage. Rihanna’s fans, the Navy, were left fuming when 2019 – the year that Riri promised her long awaited ninth album would be dropping – rang out and gave way to 2020.

It had been not-so-subtly hinted that R9 would finally arrive in the last week of December after her label Def Jam shared a picture of the singer holding her hands up to make the Roc Nation symbol. Alas, the new year and Jools Holland’s Hootenanny came and went without a sniff of a single from Rihanna, and it seems she’s enjoying working up her fans into a frenzy. The star previously shared footage of a dog dancing to music with the caption: ‘Update: me listening to R9 by myself and refusing to release it.’

The ultimate troll. Rihanna hasn’t released an album since Anti, which was released on 28 January 2016. The record, which reached number one in the US, produced the singles Work, Kiss It Better, Needed Me and Love On The Brain.
