Is Rihanna Finally Releasing 'R8' During Grammy Week? + NBA All Star Weekend Concert Rumors


Rihanna’s 8th studio album may finally be upon us.

While we’ve been patiently waiting any concrete news regarding the release of ‘R8′, The Grammys’ Twitter account may have just given us a major clue.

The show tweeted a series of anchor emojis, which have been known to coincide with Rihanna’s “Navy.” Along with the anchors, the account simply added: “#GRAMMYs 2.8.15.”

Now, normally that would seem like a bit of a reach…but if you combine that tweet with the fact that one of Rihanna’s dancers, Crystal Schaefer retweeted it and asked fans if they’re ‘ready for R&?’ — we can’t help but get a little more excited than usual.

It’s possible that the Grammys’ could be teasing a single release or a surprise performance, but at this point we’ll take anything Rihanna wants to give us.

Adding even more fuel to the R8 fire, Page Six is reporting that Rihanna’s in talks for a massive concert during NBA All-Star Weekend.

Jay Z’s Roc Nation is in talks with Rihanna to have her perform at the splashy public concert in the Flatiron District during the NBA All-Star weekend on Feb. 12.

The Post revealed yesterday details of the concert and plans to shut down several busy streets around Fifth Avenue and Broadway from 23rd to 26th streets for the event, leaving some neighbors dreading traffic snarls.

We hear Roc Nation has been in discussions with RiRi for some time, but no deal has yet been reached.

Whatever’s happening, we have a feeling it’s going to be huge.
