And though this particular teaser doesn't actually include much in the way of actual teased music, it's cause enough for celebration. Over the weekend, Rihanna seemingly fans a quick glimpse behind the curtain as sessions continue for her currently untitled album that may or may not include involvement from Supa Dups and Skrillex.
Rihanna announced a 2019 release window for the new album back in December. In response to a fan inquiry on a Fenty-related post, she confirmed only that "2019" would be the year. Shortly after, iHeartRadio hopped into the hype party with a blue check boost:
This year will also presumably include the release of the tentatively titled Guava Island, a new film from "This Is America" and Atlanta director Hiro Murai starring Donald Glover and Rihanna. Aside from the few details that emerged thanks to a PHAROS attendee, not much is known about the production, including whether it's actually a Donald Glover project or another cinematic entry within the Gambino canon.
Anyway, I can't let this wrap without once again mentioning the raw magic of Rihanna's Tame Impala cover. Here's to hoping Kevin Parker comes through for some R9 sessions.
