Rihanna has been keeping details about her new music under-wraps, but she did recently clear one thing up. During the launch party for her upcoming self-titled book on Friday, Entertainment Tonight asked if Private Loving, a song recently registered to BMI, would be the title of her upcoming album.

“That's not true,” she said. “That's not gonna be the title of any album.”

She also said that she doesn’t have any more information to give about the album, but admitted she would happily share if she did.

“The thing is, when I get more information, you will be the first to know. I will gladly vomit that out on a red carpet,” she said.

During her recent profile in Vogue, Rihanna did provide some details about her new music, but admitted that she’s been a little too busy with other things to find the time to record.

“I have been trying to get back into the studio,” she said. “It’s not like I can lock myself in for an extended amount of time, like I had the luxury of doing before. I know I have some very unhappy fans who don’t understand the inside bits of how it works.”

She also revealed that the album will be “reggae-inspired.”

“It’s not gonna be typical of what you know as reggae. But you’re going to feel the elements in all of the tracks,” she said. “Reggae always feels right to me. It’s in my blood. It doesn’t matter how far or long removed I am from that culture, or my environment that I grew up in; it never leaves. It’s always the same high. Even though I’ve explored other genres of music, it was time to go back to something that I haven’t really homed in on completely for a body of work.”
