Raven's last album Raven-Symoné was released in 2008. She had planned to release a fifth studio album in 2014 but released two new singles in 2016 instead.
Raven-Symoné came out in 2013
After same-sex marriage was legalized in the USA in 2013, the now 38-year-old tweeted, "I can finally get married! Yeah, I'm so proud of the government". After being in a relationship with designer AzMarie Livingston for three years, she announced that she was lesbian in 2016. However, she married Miranda Maday in 2020.
Raven-Symoné is now back on TV regularly.
