Rihanna officially has plans for Valentine’s Day. She’ll be recording new music.

On Friday while celebrating the launch of her new Fenty 2-20 collection at Bergdorf Goodman, Rihanna told The Cut she’s spending Valentine’s in the studio.

“I’m going to be in the studio. I’m so excited actually. I can’t say who I’m working with, but it’s somebody I’ve been wanting to work with him for a long time,” she said.

She then caved and laughed and revealed who she’ll be recording with.

“Okay, I’ll tell you. [It’s] Pharrell.”

According to US Weekly, the Grammy winner recently ended her relationship with her billionaire boyfriend of almost three years, Hassan Jameel, so her plans may be reflective of the breakup.

Rihanna’s last album Anti was released in 2016. Fans have been anticipating her follow up (R9) for years, but instead of releasing music, the mogul has launched successful fashion and makeup brands.

The songstress originally said the album would be released in 2019, but teased her fans all 2019 about the project not being released.

While chatting with Entertainment Tonight at the launch of her new collection, Rihanna said she enjoys teasing fans.

“I like to antagonize my fans a little bit. Well, they antagonize me, too! So, they get it right back.”

Towards the end of 2019, Rihanna penned a post about finding balance in her life.

“To all my friends/family/coworkers who I have yet to get back to in the past months…please forgive me,” wrote Rihanna. “This year has been quite an overwhelming one, and I’m working on that ish called Balance. brb.”

So while we are excited about her recording new music, we’ll be patient.
