The 30-year-old singer, who has been missing from the music scene for almost three years, dropped the news on Instagram on Friday.

She was interacting with a fan who commented on the post of her new Fenty product. The user asked her, "But when is the album dropping Robyn (singer's first name)? Can we have a release date for that?"

To which Rihanna replied: "2019".

The singer dropped her latest and eighth studio album, Anti on 27 January, 2016. It was nominated for best urban contemporary album and best recording package at the Grammy Awards 2017 and received multiple nominations for song on the album as well, writes Variety.

The singer starred in all-female heist caper Ocean’s 8 alongside  Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Helena Bonham Carter, Sarah Paulson and Awkwafina. Recently, the trailer footage of her film Guava Island with Childish Gambino (Donald Glover) was leaked after its preview at Glover's PHAROS festival in New Zealand.
