Rihanna Reportedly Denies Passing On A Collab With Shaggy For Her Album

Although Rihanna hasn’t shared a bunch of details yet about her highly-anticipated album, there has been a lot of speculation on who will be featured of it. Some reports claimed that the iconic artist Shaggy was going to be featured on R9, but those reports quickly went left after it was said that he actually turned it down!

Some outlets claimed that Shaggy passed on the opportunity to work with Ri after she wanted him to “audition” for her song. However, according to a new statement sent out to a few outlets, that’s totally not true.

Apparently, a rep for the singer says, “We are working on an album, not a talent show, so why would she (Rihanna) require Shaggy or any other artist to audition?,” Hot97 quotes. The representative went on to say,

“After Rihanna had already gathered all the material for the album, Shaggy contacted her asking to be a part of the album. She explained to him that the album was pretty much completed and they were just working on mixing, mastering and deciding which songs to actually use. However, she invited him to submit some materials so she could see if it fits with the flow of the album. That was by no means asking for an audition, it was more going out of her way to get him on the album.”
 
“We hope Shaggy will come out and let the fans know the real truth because we all know that the media in general and especially entertainment media cannot be trusted. They will twist someone stories in order to get the most viewers. Rihanna loves the people of Jamaica, she loves the fans of Reggae and she loves Reggae music as her career has proven and nothing can or will ever change that.”

It’s still unclear when the new album will drop and who will be on it. So, it looks like we’re just going to have to wait around and see!
