Rihanna Reveals Her Valentines Day plans

Rihanna is back at it again, messing with her fans and making no bones about it.

In a recent interview the global superstar said “I like antagonising my fans. Well, they like antagonising me too, so they get it right back”.

Riri’s new music project has been dangling in front of us like a carrot for at least a year now, and naturally, fans can’t wait to just take a bite. The singer has been teasing the sound of the album for a while now and while we know that it may include dancehall and reggae themes, no collaborations, or details of the songs themselves have been released. Until now, that is.

Rihanna was caught off guard with a question about her Valentine’s Day plans and her answer gave us information that we didn’t know we needed. After explaining that she would be spending the 14th in the studio, she went on to reveal that she’d be working with someone special. Pharrell Williams, everyone.

You know the collaboration is going to be good if Riri herself is excited about it. The singer didn’t reveal any other information about the collaboration except that there would be one and that she’s super excited about it. Turns out, Rihanna has been wanting to collaborate with Pharrell for a while now, but just hasn’t had the chance. Whether the track they’re working on is being produced by him or will feature him, we don’t know.

It’ll be one to watch out for, that’s for sure.
