Joyner Lucas has been getting praise across the board for his work. 2018 was the year he collaborated with Eminem, nominated for a Grammy for "I'm Not Racist," announced a joint project with Chris Brown and even got into a highly-publicized rap battle with Tory Lanez. With his new project, ADHD, on the way, he released his latest single, "Devil's Work."  It's received a mixed reaction so far but it's also received some heavy praise from one of pop music's biggest icons, Rihanna. The "Needed Me" singer reposted a portion of the video on Instagram along with a major co-sign for the rapper. "Just Incase y’all missed this moment for the culture from da homie @joynerlucas," she wrote.

Meanwhile, the Rihanna Navy has been begging the singer to release her follow-up to ANTI. RihRih's been steadily building up her business portfolio since the release of her last album. Her Fenty cosmetics brand has been doing serious numbers. By the end of 2018, it was reported that the brand's sales reached 500M Euros. She's also been steadily promoting the Savage X Fenty.

Rihanna's ninth studio album has been in the works for a while now. She confirmed in 2018 that the project would drop this year but there hasn't been much other news provided. Reports have surfaced throughout 2018 revealing that her next project will be highly influenced by dancehall. It's also been revealed that it's completed so it's unsure why it isn't here yet.
