The 31-year-old Barbadian pop star revealed details of her upcoming release in a cover story for Vogue‘s November issue, claiming that her new music will fuse traditional reggae influences with fresh sonic inspiration.

“I like to look at it as a reggae-inspired or reggae-infused album,” Rihanna told the publication over a year after she previously announced the highly anticipated studio set — her first since 2016’s Anti — would incorporate the Jamaican genre. “It’s not gonna be typical of what you know as reggae. But you’re going to feel the elements in all of the tracks.”

Winners and losers from ‘Thursday Night Football’ Week 3

  Winners and losers from ‘Thursday Night Football’ Week 3 These are the biggest winners and losers from Jacksonville’s 13-point victory over Tennessee. Winner: Calais Campbell© Douglas DeFelice-USA TODAY SportsTitans backup left tackle Dennis Kelly had no shot against Campbell. Kelly is starting in place of the suspended Taylor Lewan. Leaving him out on an island proved to be an utter failure for offensive coordinator Arthur Smith and Co.Campbell recorded a whopping five quarterback hits to go with four sacks in an absolutely dominating performance from the underrated 33-year-old Pro Bowler.

The singer, Ocean’s 8 actress, and Fenty Beauty makeup mogul added that reggae music has been a long-standing favorite of hers, partly due to her Caribbean roots.

“Reggae always feels right to me. It’s in my blood. It doesn’t matter how far or long removed I am from that culture, or my environment that I grew up in; it never leaves,” she said. “It’s always the same high. Even though I’ve explored other genres of music, it was time to go back to something that I haven’t really honed in on completely for a body of work.”

Still, she remained tight-lipped on a release date for the project (her ninth LP overall, which fans have affectionately dubbed R9), but she did confirm she’s already in the “discovery stage” for her 10th album, as well as a (potentially non-musical) collaboration with Lil Nas X.

“We always went into the music this time around saying that we were going to do two different pieces of art,” said Rihanna. “One was gonna be inspired by the music that I grew up listening to. And one was gonna be the evolution of where I’m going next with music.”

She also added that she “absolutely” turned down an offer to headline a recent Super Bowl halftime show in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick.

“I couldn’t dare do that. For what? Who gains from that? Not my people,” she said. “I just couldn’t be a sellout. I couldn’t be an enabler. There’s things within that organization that I do not agree with at all, and I was not about to go and be of service to them in any way.”

Representatives for the NFL and Pepsi did not immediately respond to EW’s request for confirmation on Rihanna’s claims about the Super Bowl halftime show. Read Rihanna’s full interview with Vogue here.

Marvin Lewis in 'serious consideration' for NFL head coaching openings

  Marvin Lewis in 'serious consideration' for NFL head coaching openings Former Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis is advising Arizona State, but may be in play for a future head coaching gig back in the NFL.Lewis was fired by the Bengals following last season after 16 years at the helm in Cincinnati. He was never able to win a playoff game but he completely changed the Bengals’ culture for the better and turned them into a consistent winner, making the playoffs seven times and winning the AFC North four times. Lewis caught a lot of flak toward the end of his tenure in Cincy when things got stale, but the Bengals’ 0-6 start in 2019 sure makes him look a lot better by comparison.
