It's been two long years since Rihanna released her last studio album, Unapologetic, and the 26-year-old singer is finally dropping hints about when fans can except new music!

At this week's MAC AIDS Fund premiere of It's Not Over in West Hollywood, we caught up with Ri-Ri and asked her the one question every member of Rihanna Navy is wondering: When's the new album coming out?

"Tell them they'll have to wait!" Rihanna told E! News. What a tease! She added with a smile, "I'm in the studio right now with a killer team and I'm excited about what we're doing."

While Rihanna is staying tight-lipped about what she's currently working on in the studio, Ne-Yo, who frequently collaborates with Ri-Ri, recently opened up about her eighth album.

"The stuff I've heard is absolutely incredible. I can't speak on what it sounds like because I'll get in trouble. But I definitely feel like people are gonna enjoy it," he dished. "Anybody that's a Rihanna fan is gonna stay a Rihanna fan, and anybody that's not might become a Rihanna fan...just gear up for it."

Get excited!

Meanwhile, at Tuesday night's It's Not Over screening, Rihanna also opened up about teaming up with MAC to fight against HIV and AIDS. "Nobody is really protected from this disease unless you take action," she dished. "Everybody's at risk, it doesn't matter if you're gay, straight, black, white, female or male. Everybody's at risk and the youth really right now, they're the ones we want to educate. They're the future."

"MAC has done such great work for HIV and AIDS with the MAC AIDS Fund," she added. "Just the fact that they make these products and every penny, every single penny that you spend, goes to the MAC AIDS Fund, that was like, 'lights on.' I was ready to do it."
