Rihanna may be working with ‘Toast’ hitmaker Koffee for her upcoming Reggae album ‘R9’

Rihanna’s most anticipated Reggae inspired album dubbed ‘R9’ is set to feature Jamaican rising star Koffee.

The 19-year-old star has earned an impressive number of cosigns in the past year. She even received a cosign from Rihanna earlier this year, when RiRi posted a video of herself singing along to ‘Toast’ on her way to Buju Banton’s concert in Barbados last month.

Earlier this month, as reported by The Sauce, the ‘Work’ hitmaker confirmed longstanding rumours that her upcoming ninth album would be a reggae project, and now it appears that one of Jamaica’s young stars may be involved.

According to a Jamaican news site, California-based rapper Haiti Babii recently revealed in an interview with BET that he had a FaceTime session with RiRi, where the Bajan singer said that rising reggae artist Koffee is writing for her.

“I asked her, ‘Ri, what’s up with Koffee? Do you know who that is?’” Haiti Babii recalled. “And I spelt the name wrong at first, but she was like ‘Koffee? Yeah, that’s one of my writers. You guys definitely have to link. I need something now.’” This doesn’t confirm that the Jamaican singer is writing specifically for Rihanna’s project, although that does seem to be the implication.

The 19-year-old Koffee first went viral in 2017 with her song ‘Legend’, a tribute to Jamaica’s star Olympian Usain Bolt. Since then, her 2018 single, ‘Toast’, has taken off, and she’s performed alongside major names like Jamaicans Chronixx and Protoje.
