Rihanna Reveals She's Back in the Studio, Hints She's Collaborating With Pharrell


Rihanna is once again teasing fans about when she might finally drop some new music. On Thursday, RiRi took to her Instagram Story to share a pic of a soundboard along with the caption, "Gang. Back in the STU." ET notes that displayed on the soundboard was the name of Pharrell and Chad Hugo's hip/hop-funk production team, The Neptunes--hinting that a collaboration may be coming up. Last week, the 31-year-old Rihanna told The Cut, "I’m going to be in the studio. I’m so excited actually. I can’t say who I’m working with, but it’s somebody I’ve been wanting to work with for a long time--Okay, I’ll tell you. [It’s] Pharrell." RiRi last teased fans about her upcoming ninth studio album back in December when she wrote alongside a clip of a puppy hopping around inside a cardboard box, "Me listening to R9 by myself and refusing to release it."
