Rihanna Reportedly Not Going On A World Tour
Well, the anticipation was fun while it lasted. As reports began circulating that Rihanna would be going on tour beginning next year, a source told Billboard that is certainly untrue for the time being. “No tour has been confirmed for Rihanna,” the source states.
This week, a source told The Daily Mirror that she was planning a world tour and had new music on the way.
“Rihanna is quietly planning a comeback tour after signing with Live Nation,” an insider allegedly told The Daily Mirror. “The deal was created to facilitate a world tour and her creative team is quietly at work in Los Angeles putting it all together as she raises her family.”
The source also stated that the singer has two albums worth of recordings ready to go whenever she sees fit to release. Rihanna’s last album release was her 2016 Anti.
Back in March, the singer teased that fans should look out for a new project dropping sometime this year. “It’d be ridiculous if it’s not this year,” she told British Vogue at the time. “But I just want to have fun. I just want to make music and make videos,” she said.
Rihanna’s 2023 Live Performances
Rihanna’s last musical release was for the soundtrack of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Her first song released was “Lift Me Up.” It was co-written by Rihanna, Tems, Ludwig Göransson, and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever director Ryan Coogler. The record was nominated for Best Original Song at this year’s Oscars. This was Rihanna’s first Academy Award nomination.
Her second song release was “Born Again” which was also found on the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack. The film came out in November 2022.
Prior to the Oscar buzz, Rihanna stepped on stage at the Super Bowl as their halftime performer. She sung some of her greatest hits, such as “Bitch Better Have My Money,” “Rude Boys,” “Diamonds,” and more. The Grammy-winner also announced that she was pregnant with she and A$AP Rocky’s second child Riot Rose at the Super Bowl. Their oldest son, RZA, was born May 2022.
