Rihanna fans flip out after she registers new song Private Loving THREE years after her last album Anti
The long wait might finally be over for Rihanna fans.
Over the weekend, a RiRi news Twitter account revealed that the Barbadian songstress, 31, recently registered new music with her music publisher BMI.
The song, called Private Loving, was reportedly written by the multi-hyphenate and Jamaican dancehall/reggae artist Demarco.

Rihanna's fan base has been patiently waiting for new music from her for three years now, since her 2016 release Anti which featured tracks like Work, Desperado and Love On The Brain.
Although the SOS hitmaker has been a featured artist on some other musicians' tracks in the time since, like those of Future and DJ Khaled, the lack of original solo music from Rihanna herself might explain the rabid response from her fans at this prospect of new music.
When the news of the song being registered hit, the Navy' (pet name for Rihanna's loyalest fans) tweeted in droves, with GIFs galore (like the iconic 'Everybody Stay Calm' Office GIF) as well as comments like 'I CANNOT BREATHE' and 'She is COMING'.
In the interim, Rihanna has been focusing on other pursuits, like acting — she appeared in last year's hit Ocean's 8 with Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett.
