Rihanna has her Navy shook after posting a cryptic message on Instagram.
The post is a picture of two televisions with the caption “didn’t they tell you?” — words from her ANTI cut “Needed You.” The image on the top TV appears to be Rihanna wearing some jewelry. The bottom TV depicts television noise.
It’s not clear what this Rihanna is teasing at this point. Many fans are hoping it’s a hint about a new album, which would be the follow-up to 2016’s multi-platinum selling ANTI LP.
RiRi certainly knows how to be mysterious, as seen by her showing up to Coachella wearing a Gucci-designed ski mask that made her unrecognizable. Perhaps there’s a Gucci and Rihanna fashion collaboration in the works.
Another clue comes from a verified Instagram account named @savagexfenty, which could be a reference to the “didn’t they tell you that I was a savage?” line mentioned in her latest Instagram post, her last name (Fenty) and her Fenty Beauty makeup.
If Rihanna is teasing new music, she’ll join a growing list of artists cryptically revealing their release plans. This week, Drake dropped hints about his new album, Scorpion, using jewelry and fashion. Also, J. Cole changed his social media to purple artwork and surprised fans with a free show on Monday (April 16) before announcing his new album KOD will be available on Friday (April 20).
