When Rihanna Instagrammed the above photo with the caption “rihannaNOW.com #R8 #BBHMM #March26″ on Wednesday afternoon, the internet erupted with questions: Would her first album in three years release? What does that sidebar say? Is it a single? Will Twitter break under the weight of another musical surprise? Unfortunately, none turned out to be true.
Instead, listeners can hear a 10-second preview of her (still) upcoming single, “Bitch Better Have My Money,” if they download and sign-up for the lip-syncing app Dubsmash. Not sure about you, but with all the excitement of unannounced album drops this month, this felt like a letdown.
