    Just a reminder to everyone: you're not required to post in any specific thread.

    I wonder - if it is a surprise release, which is kind of a dead certain right now - how many videos are going to be released with the video, or if there will be any videos at all.

    With the Home soundtrack on the horizon, I assume this era will be short but sweet. We know she doesn't like/do extensive promo after the release week of an album, so I'm curious to see if she's just going to put it all out there, like Bey, or still do a proper campaign even though the album is already released.

    That is, if it's not just a single surprise release.

    A Beyoncé-style album release with at least a handful of videos would make a lot of sense for Ri-Ri, considering she gives up on album promo three months in anyway.

    This wouldn't be much of a "surprise" release if we're all just sitting here waiting for it to drop because we know it's coming. It kind of defeats the whole purpose.

    Notwithstanding the particulars of the release strategy I am nevertheless poised for new RiRi, it has been way too long. She needs to come back and floor everyone again with a killer song.

    Of all the artists to release a 'surprise itunes album' Rihanna? She's a rung above Katy Perry when it comes to 'album artist' but I welcome anything from Ri-Ri, quench this drought!

    I don't think there will be videos released with it.

    I actually can't wait, I'm so excited for this. Most anticipated Rihanna release ever for me.

    You don't say.

    how do we know there will be a "surprise"-release?
     
  9. Re: Rihanna - 8th Album Discussion

    I cant believe Rihanna actually will already have a 3-year gap between an album of hers.

    I mean we all know the only year she hadn't released a studio album was the doomed year 2008.

    Rihanna the new Kate Bush.

    I mean I know this sounds preemptive, but based on the little information we have and the long wait I think we're going to be getting a very high quality album. She's in kind of a bad place with release methods though. A traditional campaign will put her too close to "Home", and I don't think a surprise release would do her many favors.

    I think she should pull a Robyn and do a series of digital EP's, released with little warning.

    They both make fantastic albums so I don't get the contrast.
     
  12. Re: Rihanna - 8th Album Discussion

    This is going to be so so so huge. I can feel it. Bigger than anything in the past year other than 1989.

    definitely more interesting than 1989.
     
  14. Re: Rihanna - 8th Album Discussion

    Let's not go over our heads.
     
  15. Re: Rihanna - 8th Album Discussion

    I don't want her to 'Beyonce' the album, the constant comparisons will be so annoying. Announce it and release it 1 week later.
     
  16. Re: Rihanna - 8th Album Discussion

    Especially if it were to underperform...which let's be real here who gets that hyped about a Rihanna album? Singles are another thing entirely though.
     
  17. Re: Rihanna - 8th Album Discussion

    The general public isn't sitting in this thread though. Not by any means.

    While Beyonce created the perfect once-in-a-lifetime storm for herself last year that Rihanna's circumstances just can't recreate, I don't think the idea of a Rihanna surprise release is that nonsensical. I think just putting it out there with no song designated as **the single** may actually prompt people to give the entire album a go, especially if individual songs aren't available for sale. I imagine her people think next week is the prime week to do this. This album's first single can emerge in the weeks following.

    ... To be honest, I don't care. I just want it.

    I just hope #very soon is not becoming the new #soon
     
  19. Re: Rihanna - 8th Album Discussion

    But their album sales are usually quite weak compared to them killing it with their singles sales. That's the contrast I was making, nothing on the actual quality of their albums.
