Rih Rih fans have to be excited with this as Rihanna has just registered two new songs on ASCAP. Is R9 on the way? Let’s speculate, shall we?
Things have also gotten a little more interesting when we dig into the meat of the singles and found out that Mark Anthony Myrie, Buju Banton government name, is credited as a writer on one of the songs titled “Phatty.” The second single that Rihanna registered on ASCAP is titled “Only One Who Knows.” The release date for the singles is not yet known, but we are keeping her eyes on this new song “Phatty.”
Well These are two great artists and you can only expect great music from artists of this quality.” Rihanna has always been a huge fan of reggae music especially artists like Bob Marley, Buju Banton, and Sizzla Kalonji. Rihanna was also spotted earlier this week wearing a T-Shirt with Buju Banton image on it paying homage to the reggae singer.
Buju is currently serving a 10-year prison sentence in Florida for cocaine trafficking conviction. He is scheduled to be released from prison in late 2018 when he will be deported to Jamaica. The Grammy-winning reggae star has maintained his innocence, but after exhausting his appeals, he opted to complete his sentence. Releasing a song with Rihanna will sure give his career some lifeline ahead of his release from prison.
Buju Banton is also restricted from recording new music in prison.
