Rihanna is officially back in the studio.

It’s been two years since Rihanna released ANTI and fans have been waiting for an update on what she will be making next. On the Graham Norton Show this week, the pop sensation confirmed that she is recording the follow-up to her 2016 album.

“I am actually in the studio at the moment,” she told Norton. When asked if the album would be out by the end of the year, she replied: “You’ll just have to wait and see.”

Fans are wondering what to expect next from Rihanna after her eighth studio album, ANTI, was considered a flop. A source told Metro that she is hoping to create a new album with more great hits.

“Rihanna wasn’t happy with how her last album performed – even though she loved how it turned out, she knows she needs a new project full of smash hits to avoid two back-to-back flops,” they said.

“She’s currently recording two albums – one full of chart-friendly songs, and another made up of moody and experimental tracks – and is considering releasing a double disc if she feels the songs won’t mesh well on the same album.”
