Rihanna has been spending a lot of time with Travis Scott lately, and RiRi’s fans are starting to get a little peeved that she hasn’t released her highly-anticipated album, ‘R8.’ They’re even starting to blame the rapper for prolonging the delay!
Rihanna, 27, and Travis Scott, 23, are practically inseparable. The pair was recently caught making out at a NYFW after-party. While Ri’s fans are all about the singer finding love, they are beginning to point fingers at Travis as the reason why her eighth album, R8, has yet to get an official release date. Are they overreacting or totally on point?
Rihanna fans around the globe have been waiting all summer to see if the singer will release R8. We’ve been waiting a long time for a new Rihanna album — yeah, it’s been three years since the release of Unapologetic. Rihanna hasn’t released a new single for her upcoming eighth album since “Bi*ch Better Have My Money” in March 2015.

Travis Scott is just another tool Rihanna is using to distract us from the fact that R8 isn’t out.

Rihanna got a hard copy of Travis Scott’s “Rodeo”. When will we be able to get our hard copy of R8? pic.twitter.com/3rTKd6EWGR

We totally admire Rihanna for taking her time with her new album, but we also want new music! It appears that Rihanna and Travis may have been working on something for the album — an alleged track titled “Tourist” featuring the two of them leaked in March 2015.
Rihanna and Travis have been heating things up big time. Travis was spotted kissing Rihanna’s neck at a NYFW party on Sept. 10. In the early hours of Sept. 11, they turned things up a notch at an after-party. HollywoodLife.com learned EXCLUSIVELY that Rihanna thinks Travis is “sexy” and they have “magical” chemistry, but they’re not as serious as you might think.
Hey, maybe Rihanna’s about to pull a Beyonce and drop R8 out of nowhere!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Rihanna and Travis are a serious couple? When do you think she’ll release R8? Let us know!
