Rihanna’s Eighth Studio Album, R8, Coming This Month?

Is Rihanna going to blow us away with new music by the end of December? Maybe even hit us with a single before Christmas?

If recent reports and a pre-order on Play.com have any weight, a new single and the awaited arrival of #R8, her eighth studio album, are coming in weeks — maybe even days.

According to Play.com, who posted a pre-order link for the as yet untitled effort, they have not been stocked with the actual album, but are expecting it. Rihanna has also been seen going to the studio and Roc Nation headquarters as of late.

As reported last week, she teased us with a snippet of a song, where she sang about how nothing is promised.

So will we hear anything new this week or next week? We'll just have to watch and see.

As previously reported, Rihanna has been working with DJ Mustard and Ester Dean, who may appear on the final cut of her album.
