With her Fenty empire poised for global domination, it seems like Rihanna has temporarily traded in the booth for palettes and brushes—which has only made fans crave RiRi's next album more than ever. Now it seems like the Navy could be getting closer to setting sail as the singer posted an image that might mean her follow-up to 2016's ANTI is done.
On Monday, Rihanna took to Instagram where she posted a baby wearing noise-canceling headphones sitting atop a mixing board.
Although her caption only said, "thank you @jennnrosales and @the_aa for blessing my day a lil mo" the rare sight for the newly crowned fashion mogul in a studio had her fans in a frenzy. Fuel was added to the flames when Rihanna's best friend and project manager Jennifer Rosales posted the picture of her child on her profile with a newsworthy caption.
A great example of this would be the 2017 NBA Finals. While sitting courtside during Game 1, Rosales became a topic of discussion after she yelled "BRICK!" during one of Kevin Durant's free throws. Because she was sitting next to her best friend RiRi, the internet assumed Rihanna was trying to distract KD in order to help her homie LeBron. Eventually, Rosales admitted to yelling at Durant, making for a fun internet moment.
"When tia @badgalriri gives you the first listen," Rosales wrote before adding to the hype by closing out the post with "#newmusic."
While a new Rihanna album would be greatly appreciated, it should be noted that her own post never hinted at new music. Also, fans mustn't confuse the possible jokes from Rihanna's friends with the personal thoughts and feelings of Robyn Fenty.
