The singer has so far donated $1 million to Coronavirus relief funds. Her Clara Lionel Foundation has also teamed up with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to donate $4.2 million to the Mayor’s Fund for Los Angeles to help domestic abuse victims amid the quarantine crisis.
The singer has not given fans a lot of information concerning the forthcoming album, she recently covered ‘British Vogue’ in which she revealed that she is aggressively working on new music.
“I can’t say when I’m going to drop… but I am very aggressively working on music. I don’t want all my albums to feel like themes. There are no rules, there’s no format, there’s nothing. There’s just good music and if I feel it, I’m putting it out.”
