As Rihanna has continued to drop new hit single after single this year high anticipation has built for R8 as we’ve all been patiently waiting on details for the release.
The pop rebel has spilled the beans in saying it’s Kanye who has been slowing up the process. The G.O.O.D CEO is the executive producer of the album and Rih shares that there have been scheduling conflicts which has lead to the hold up. She sat down with NME mag and explained, “His schedule and mine are totally opposite right now… But I think this month we’ll be back in the studio.”
Rihanna elaborates on their experience in creating the R8 project thus far in saying,
“I have so many songs I love — and they’re so different– that’s it’s hard to actually put them all on the same album.”
“So I guess Yeezy isn’t totally to blame, eh?”
And of course it should come as no surprise in the midst of the halt fans are not letting her forget about the special delivery.
“No matter what I post online, within three comments there’s somebody saying, ‘Where is ‘R8′?’ I could post anything. Nothing else matters. They don’t care about anything but that,” Rihanna said. “But it makes me excited, because I can’t wait to give them something great.”
Perfection is definitely a process and it’s safe to say that both Rih and Ye are keeping the best interest of the fans and the art in mind when it comes to delivering an outstanding body of work. Given their track record fans aren’t worried just anxious.
