UPDATE: We’ve been bamboozled! This above photo is not Rihanna! I repeat…not Rihanna! The woman in the photo above is 24-year-old Toronto native, Sherise Cromwell. She’s an entrepreneur who designs jewelry and swimwear.
I’m not sure who pranked the world with the fake Rihanna album cover for #R8, but I’m sad it’s not the cover. That’s such a hot photo!
So while everyone else was oogling over Beyonce’s stellar performance on the 2014 VMAs, Rihanna was focused on making the internet internet exclaim, “Yassss!” by simply releasing the artwork for her latest album, #R8. Rihanna looking freakin’ amazing! We need that necklace, that hat and that fierceness. Sheesh! The hashtag is because that’s what we’re doing these days on social media. I’m assuming the “R” is for her name and the “8” represents her 8th studio album. It’s like “Blue’s Clues“ and I figured it out!
Back in June, Rihanna teased us with a Twitter photo from the studio with the caption, “#R8” and since then, Rihanna’s been steadily working on new music. She’s currently on the “Monster” tour with Eminem, but uses the time between shows to work on the album. Several blogs have been spotting the Bajan beauty leaving and arriving studios in L.A. and NYC. The album is rumored to be released in November.
We’re excited to hear what Rihanna’s got to offer on this album. Hits, we’re sure.
