A Bold Wardrobe Choice

On June 6, Rihanna was seen walking in New York with her boyfriend, A$AP Rocky. The 36-year-old singer made headlines with her striking fashion choice: a blue, short-sleeved T-shirt with the bold declaration, “I’m retired,” printed in large white text.

Beneath it, in smaller red letters, the shirt read, “This is as dressed up as I get.” She paired this statement piece with a darker blue maxi skirt, red sneakers, and accessorized with a lime green purse.

A$AP Rocky’s Complementary Style

Walking beside Rihanna, A$AP Rocky, 35, donned a tan and brown argyle sweater shirt with light denim jeans. The stylish couple, who share two sons, RZA (2 years old) and Riot (10 months old), looked effortlessly chic while out in the city.

Rihanna’s choice of attire has left fans speculating about her music career, especially since her last album, Anti, was released in 2016. The singer has been promising new music, and her T-shirt message might be a playful nod to the long wait.

Earlier this year, A$AP Rocky was seen in a video shared on X (formerly known as Twitter), where he reassured fans that Rihanna is working on her much-anticipated album, R9.

Recent Updates and Future Plans

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight in April, Rihanna discussed her ongoing music projects while promoting her Fenty x Puma Creeper Phatty Earth Tone sneaker.

She expressed confidence in the quality of her new tracks, stating, “I already got stuff that I feel like I can make hits out of. Really.” She also mentioned the playful dilemma of deciding whether to use the songs herself or give them to Rocky.

When asked about the musical future of their sons, Rihanna said, “I mean, it’s up to them,” indicating her support for whatever paths they choose.

Expanding Her Empire

While fans eagerly await her new music, Rihanna continues to expand her business ventures. Earlier this week, she announced the launch of her new haircare line, adding to her already impressive Fenty empire.


Rihanna’s fashion statement in New York has certainly stirred excitement and curiosity among fans.

While her T-shirt humorously hints at a possible “retirement,” her ongoing projects and business expansions suggest that the multi-talented star is far from slowing down. Fans remain hopeful that the wait for her new music will soon be over, as Rihanna herself assures that the forthcoming tracks will be worth it.
