Rihanna and Her New Blonde Hair Have Big News

Dust off your record player.

It's not the fabled R9, but Rihanna's loyal Navy will have plenty to celebrate with her latest announcement. In a new Instagram gallery, Ri told her followers that all of her previous releases would be getting pressed onto vinyl — and the photos show her posing in front of a huge record display. But look past all the new vinyl and you'll see new long, blonde hair, a contrast from her previous mullet and Halloween braids.

The photos show her lying on a shaggy carpet surrounded by her oeuvre, including candy-colored vinyl versions of her albums A Girl Like Me, Music of the Sun, and Talk That Talk. She also posted a promotional video to announce the releases.

"The RIH 👏🏿 ISSUE 👏🏿 cop these limited edition color vinyl + exclusive merch sets before dey gon' !!!" she wrote alongside the video. For the photos, which conclude with a very Rihanna shot of the singer smoking while lounging on a shaggy chair, she wrote, "'today's kids will never know what vinyl is,' they said!"

Naturally, commenters were risking lifetime bans from Rihanna's IG and hounding her for more information on her upcoming release, instead of news about her last eight albums. Comments like "Where's the album?" got responses like "we bout to get blocked!!" and "I'm TIRED miss mamas!"

Instead of providing updates on that front, Rihanna has been keeping busy being a billionaire (thanks in part to her Savage X Fenty lingerie range) and expanding her Fenty Beauty line into fragrance.
