Rihanna is back with new music! Sort of….. For years now, RiRi has been fucking with her fans about the release of her ninth album. She’s released everything BUT an album from makeup to lingerie to clothes. And just when everyone was going to start referring to Rihanna as “former pop star turned lipstick and panties mogul,” she has thrown her fans a music crumb in the form of a new song that she’s featured on. You’ll have to take what you can get, bitch!
PARTYNEXTDOOR released his new album PARTYMOBILE last night. Among the tracks on the album was a new one with Rihanna called BELIEVE IT. Yup, believe that RiRi actually yodeled on a new song. Pitchfork said the two had worked before; he co-wrote Work and Sex With Me for her album Anti.
And the gift of new music isn’t the only charity Rihanna has bestowed upon the masses. Billboard says that her foundation is donating supplies to New York during the pandemic, which has hit the state the hardest in the United States. The US now has the most number of cases in the world, with New York accounting for nearly 5% of the world’s confirmed cases.
Governor Andrew Cuomo tweeted a thank you to RiRi:
I want to thank @rihanna and the Rihanna Foundation for donating Personal Protective Equipment to New York State.
We're so appreciative of your help and that of so many others who have stepped up.

Rihanna also used her Clara Lionel Foundation to donate $5 million to various organizations fighting the COVID-19 pandemic in the US, the Caribbean, and Africa.
Governor Cuomo also thanked Kelly Ripa and her husband Mark Consuelos for their donation of $1 million. Christian Siriano and Bethenny Frankel have also been doing a lot in terms of trying to get supplies to hospitals. But pandemic or not, if you think RiRi’s generous donations will stop her Navy from crying about a new album, you’re wrong. This quarantine is keeping them at home with nothing else to do but cry for an album. Nothing can stop the stans, not even coronavirus!
