What Does Rihanna Being on The Voice Mean For Her Career?

Still waiting on R8 to drop like...*insert meme here*

NBC’s The Voice announced yesterday that Rihanna will be joining season 9 of their show as a key advisor.

While other major stars have been honored with this title including Taylor Swift, Alicia Keys, Stevie Nicks, we’re starting to worry about what this means for the singer’s career. There are also those talks about stars that end up on reality TV soon getting washed up.

After all, the public has been waiting for Riri’s R8 album for months now and there is still no word on when it will be released.

She’s known for dropping albums every year and the clock is ticking. It’s already been three years since Unapologetic. On top of that, her singles “BBHMM” and “FourFiveSeconds” haven’t caught on like her past jams. This whole stint on The Voice just seems like a distraction from what we’re all thirsting for, some classic Rihanna hits.

Could we be nearing the end of Rihanna’s reign? It’s sure starting to look that way. But we’re still here for any and all of her modeling, that’s for sure.
