In the video, posted on January 24, Ms. Fenty dances in what looks like a hotel bedroom in lingerie from her SavageXFenty collection, wearing a sheer bra, a lace-up skirt, and gloves. Plus, jewelry, makeup, and most importantly, a mullet (possibly a wig, but still). Captioned “Cupid could NEVA! #ValentinesDayCountdown @savagexfenty,” the video is certainly a Valentine’s Day vibe. Better get those orders in now if you want to wear Savage on the holiday. (Rihanna, for those curious, has recently been linked to A$AP Rocky, but neither has confirmed a relationship. They were spotted kissing in Barbados a few weeks ago.)
It’s the casual butt shaking for me, personally.
Rih’s been super playful on Instagram lately. When President Joe Biden was inaugurated on January 20, she posted a picture of herself taking out bags of trash, perhaps a metaphor for the outgoing Trump administration, with the caption, “I’m just here to help…#wediditJoe.”
Now, before you spam the comments on either of these posts asking for new music, she’s working on it, okay? As recently as October, 2020, RiRi was dropping hints that an album is coming. “I just want to have fun with music. Everything is so heavy. The world that we live in is a lot. It’s overwhelming every single day. And with the music, I’m using that as my outlet,” she told the Associated Press, also saying she’d had “writing camps” for a new record and may have even finished a song or two. “I’m stuck with music that I love, and now I’m trying to figure out how I can even create visuals to that,” she said.
Come to think of it, maybe the mullet is the perfect style for work-hard, play-hard Rihanna.
