A few microphone selfies from Rihanna can send her fans into meltdown mode.
On Friday morning, Rihanna posted several videos and pictures to her Instagram story posing behind recording equipment, with one shot captioned: “When breakfast becomes dinner.”
The posts come after a summer of non-musical projects for Rihanna, from rolling out new products in her Fenty Beauty makeup brand and prepping her New York Fashion Week-closing presentation of her Savage X Fenty lingerie line, to spending time in Cuba with Donald Glover working on a yet-to-be-announced project.
Now, these new teasingly cryptic posts suggest that a new musical project, the follow-up to her 2016 album “Anti,” could be in the works.
While Rih’s Instagram story didn’t include any actual audio of new music, her followers took the bait, with her posts triggering an internet freakout among fans who can’t wait any longer for her next album.
“I love me some Rihanna, I honestly thought we lost her to the beauty community and the fashion industry but nah, she’s back in the studio cooking up that crack for my ears,” one fan tweeted.
