In 2019 your auntie told you pop singer Rihanna had retired from the music industry to focus on her business empire.

At the time, she had just signed a lucrative deal with LVMH, the world's largest luxury goods company and parent company of Louis Vuitton (that deal has since been canceled).

In 2019, a record label source who reached out to Sandrarose.com confidentially was upset because RiRi's refusal to book studio time was jeopardizing his job.

Within days, the singer's camp issued a statement saying she would release an "absolutely insane" new album.

In September 2019, it was announced Rihanna had signed a record deal with Sony/ATV Music Publishing. In December 2019, Rihanna hinted she was finishing up a new album and she planned to announce the release date in an Instagram post.

On March 27, 2020 she was featured on Canadian artist PartyNextDoor's song "Believe It" -- but her fans couldn't believe there was still no new album.

On Wednesday, Rihanna hinted she's gearing up to release a new single "soon".

The "Umbrella" singer shared a video honoring her career for Women's History Month on her Instagram which focused on her Anti era.

She wrote in the caption:

"Grateful to the most High for putting die hard supports in my circle... Congrats to everyone that contributed to this era (Anti), thank you team."

But many of her followers signaled they have lost patience with her. How long does she expect them to wait for a new album?

One follower commented: "celebrate by releasing a song", to which she replied: "I think I should" with the soon arrow emoji.

The Diamonds hitmaker then added: "just 1 tho lol."

Another vexed fan suggested she should celebrate coming out of retirement by releasing her long-awaited ninth studio album. To which she replied in Patois: "Lemme have me moment nuuuhhh??? Lol."

The "Work" singer hasn't released an LP since Anti, which peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart in January 2016. But she insisted she is "always" working on her music and despite fans' pleas for her to share her latest material, she claims she wants to wait until she's completely satisfied.

Annoyed that the few fans she has left are clamoring for a new album, the 33-year-old retired singer wrote:

"I'm always working on new music. Just because I haven't released an album in a few years doesn't mean I haven't been working on it. I'm not just going to put music out because people are craving it."

And with that, Rihanna -- who earns multi-millions selling makeup, clothes and shoes -- officially turned her back on her fans.

    Rihanna's Fenty Fashion House and LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy) have reportedly reached a mutual decision to part ways, according to reports from both Women’s Wear Daily and Business of Fashion.

    In a statement to WWD, an LVMH rep said the luxury fashion house, which owns the Louis Vuitton brand, "have jointly made the decision to put on hold the RTW [ready to wear] activity, based in Europe, pending better conditions."

    The decision appears to be final, but, according to WWD, both LVMH and Rihanna "haven't ruled out taking a second run" at a partnership in the future.

    "Mr. Arnault has given me a unique opportunity to develop a fashion house in the luxury sector, with no artistic limits," she said, referring to Bernard Arnault, chairman and CEO of LVMH Moët Hennessy.

    "I couldn't imagine a better partner both creatively and business-wise, and I'm ready for the world to see what we have built together," she continued.

    LVMH will reportedly focus on Rihanna's Fenty Beauty, Fenty Skin elements and Savage X Fenty lines.

    LVMH is s home to 75 fashion brands.

    Drake debuted a brand new pixie hairstyle, shocking his fans who flooded his social media timelines begging for an explanation.

    He captioned the photo: "BIG MOOD."

    Drake stunned with his new hairstyle just days after his ex-lover, Rihanna, vacationed in Barbados with effeminate rapper, A$AP Rocky.

    Rocky and Rihanna, both 32, were spotted jet skiing together on Rihanna's home turf. Paparazzi photos of the lovebirds cuddled together were too much for the emo rapper who asked his stylist to hook him up with one of his exes most popular looks.

    The pixie style featured a cute heart shape which his fans assumed was a subtle nod to RiRi that she was still renting space in his head.

    Drake's emotional breakdown won him cool points with the ladies who sympathized with the lovesick Certified Lover Boy.

    Check out the Twitter reactions below.

    Brown pled guilty to felony assault and had a restraining order placed on him, preventing him from seeing Rihanna.

    The order was later lifted and the pair developed a "very, very close" non-abusive friendship.

    Speaking about the relationship during a no-holds-barred interview on Oprah Winfrey's SuperSoul Conversations podcast, Rihanna explains: "We've been working on our friendship again. Now we're very very close friends. We've built up a trust again, and that's - we love each other and we probably always will. And that's not something we're ever going to change. That's not something you can shut off, if you've ever been in love."

    She added: "I think he was the love of my life. He was the first love. And I see that he loved me the same way... it's not even about us being together. I truly love him. So the main thing for me is that he's at peace. I'm not at peace if he's a little unhappy, or he's still lonely."

    When Oprah asked if Rihanna and Chris have rekindled their romance, she replied: "He's in a relationship of his own. I'm single but we have maintained a very close friendship ever since the restraining order has been dropped. We've just worked on it, little by little, and it has not been easy. It's not easy."

    Rihanna has had difficulty maintaining a stable, healthy relationship with men including Travis Scott, Drake, A$AP Rocky, Hassan Jameel, and others.

    Rihanna said mending her relationship with her father, who was abusive to her mother, allowed her to forgive Chris.

    "It took me a long time, I was angry for a long time," she admits. "I felt like this is not my fault, this is not me doing this, and still I have to worry - I was resentful, I had a grudge, I was angry, I was dark. It was coming out in my music, in my clothes, in my attitude and I didn't like that feeling, it was heavy."

    She continued: "I repaired my relationship with my dad. I was so angry with him, and I was just angry about a lot of things from my childhood and I couldn't separate him as a husband from him as a father. I felt like if he was a bad husband then he was a bad father. I witnessed a lot as a child. Yes he was (violent)... I remember just thinking one day, why can't I get to a place where I can let somebody in? Why can't I love? I wanted to know why. I would think, 'What is my idea of what is supposed to happen?' I wasn't having a relationship with my father anymore so I wasn't able to connect with a man past a certain point.

    "The minute I was able to realize that my father was probably one of the best fathers in the world. He taught me everything. And as awful as he was to my mom at times, it didn't compare to how great he was as a father. And I had to come to terms with that. And I was able to close that gap with him. And all kinds of emotions started happening after that. All kind of things started making sense."

    She concludes: "I thought I hated Chris and I realized it was love was tarnished. It looked like hate because it was ugly, angry, it was inflamed, it was tainted. And I realized that what it was is I had to forgive him because I cared about him still. And the minute I let go of that, I started living again."
