Rihanna Planning 2024 World Tour and New Music, Source Says

Brace yourselves, Rihanna Navy — the singer has something special coming your way.

The GRAMMY winner is planning a world tour for 2024/2025 after striking a deal with Live Nation and has plans to release new music, ET has learned.

It’s been a year since Rihanna released her Oscar-nominated single, “Lift Me Up,” from the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack, which marked the mom of two’s first single in six years.

Although she’s been featured on various songs, the 35-year-old singer hasn’t released an album since 2016.

The FENTY Beauty creator has understandably had her hands full with her growing family: she and rapper A$AP Rocky welcomed their first child, RZA Athelston Mayers, in May 2022 and introduced their newest addition to the world, Riot Rose Mayers, last month.

A source told ET that Rihanna and A$AP are loving life as a family of four. “They’ve got their hands full,” said the source before adding that both parents are incredibly hands-on.

Earlier this year, Rihanna surprised the world with her second pregnancy announcement during the Super Bowl LVII halftime show, a moment that touched the hearts of fans worldwide. A source close to the couple shared, “Rihanna adores being a mom, and it’s her biggest accomplishment in life. She and A$AP have always wanted to grow their family and have another baby together.”

Despite their busy careers, Rihanna and A$AP continue to demonstrate unwavering support for each other and their family. “They’re so excited to grow their family and are so united when it comes to parenting,” the source added at the time. “They have so much fun together and are very in love. They already shared a special connection, and parenting together has made their bond even stronger.”

As she settles into her new role raising two boys, it seems Rihanna is ready to bring her musical career back to the forefront. The singer recently stepped down as the CEO of Savage X Fenty, the lingerie brand she co-owns with LVMH.

“It’s been beautiful to see our vision for Savage X Fenty impact the industry at such an incredible magnitude over the last five years,” Rihanna, who founded the line in 2018, told Vogue Business in June. “This is just the beginning for us, and we’re going to continue to expand in ways that always connect with the consumer.”

While Rihanna still serves as an executive chair for the company, Hillary Super, former CEO of Anthropologie Group, has taken over as CEO, the outlet reported. “I’m so grateful and excited to welcome Hillary Super as our new CEO,” Rihanna added. “She is a strong leader and is focused on taking the business to an even higher level.”

Fans have been craving more since Rihanna’s halftime performance, and it seems the time has finally come. While it’s still a question whether Rihanna will be putting out her long-awaited ninth studio album, fans can take comfort that there will be new music from the singer in the new year.
