Unlike DaBaby, Rihanna is fully embracing her Instagram doppelgänger.
On Friday (August 14), Brazillian Rihanna impersonator Priscila Beatrice (with help from The Shade Room) caught the attention of Riri herself with her latest TikTok dedicated to the R&B megastar.
“Where the album sis? #R9,” Rihanna joked in The Shade Room’s comment section, a reference to the running gag fans’ (including Drake) refusal to wait for her still-untitled-yet-semi-announced ninth studio album.
An ecstatic Beatrice took to Instagram writing, “I still can’t believe it !!! The page @theshaderoom shared my video on their profile and THE OWN RIHANNA @badgalriri saw my video and commented !!!! Do you know what I’m feeling right now ??? I can’t stop crying with emotion !!!! Of happiness!!!!! It is a dream!!! God is so wonderful !!!!!”
Although it has been more than four years since Rihanna dropped a project, 2016’s Anti recently spent 224 weeks on the Billboard 200, making it the longest-charting album by a Black female artist in history.
No official release date has been announced for the album known as R9.
Rihanna's #ANTI has now spent 199 weeks on the Billboard 200 — and is now 1 week away from becoming the first album by a black woman, in the chart's 61-year history, to surpass 200 weeks. 👑 pic.twitter.com/HJOOsKcliH
