The notorious pop princess Rihanna hasn’t delivered a new album since the release of her seventh album, “Unapologetic” in November 2012.  However, she scored a #1 hit with her latest collaboration “The Monster”, which was part of the eighth album from Eminem titled, “The Marshall Mathers LP 2“.

According Play.com, the album will be released on December 26th. The site has made the project’s standard and deluxe edition available to pre-order for £13.98 (€16,98 / $21.85)… not sure how legit that is as Rihanna nor the label has endorsed the advert.

Rihanna is back on Instagram, she’s snatching the cover of magazines and has been posting on social like crazy.

According producer and entrepreneur DJ Skee:

That project is a lot closer than anyone realized, including her own record label. Last weekend in New York City, Rihanna took a couple Def Jam executives to a top secret location and played ten new records. So, that means she’s trying to put out a project to capitalize off the fourth quarter craziness. She recorded a song called “(I’ve Been Searching for Something to) Ignite Me, which might be one of the entertainer’s new singles.

Rihanna did an unexpected fan ambush in Paris on December 18th. The even was titled “The R8 Experience” and you can watch some videos below:
