Jay-Z and Rihanna have sparked rumours they could be collaborating together once more, after the pair met for lunch in Los Angeles.
The legendary rapper and pop giant were spotted at Hotel Bel Air’s Wolfgang Puck in Los Angeles on Wednesday, reports The New York Post’s Page Six.
According to the publication, the friends enjoyed a “business lunch” where they discussed “music and what they can do together.
If true, it would mark the first collaboration between the pair since Rihanna featured on Jay-Z’s ‘Run This Town’. It came after Jay previously appeared on Rihanna’s ‘Umbrella’ and ‘Talk That Talk’.
It was claimed late last month that Rihanna is close to finishing her latest album – the follow up to 2016’s ‘Anti’.
“She’s cooking, she’s about done. She’s about done. Super close,” producer The Dream he told HOT 97’s Ebro Darden.
The latest update comes after the singer practically confirmed that a new record will arrive at some point this year.
“When is the album dropping Robyn? Can we have a release date for that?,” wrote one fan on Instagram.
“2019,” Rihanna curtly responded.
Producer Kurk Harrell, who worked with Rihanna on ‘Anti’, has also spilt the beans – describing Rihanna’s latest as “incredible.”
The producer responded to one fan on Instagram : “R9 is great. R9 is amazing. It’s incredible, And that’s all I’m going to say.”
As well as music, it’s also expected that Rihanna’s fans will also get her most significant big screen turn in 2019 too. In 2018, it was revealed that Ri and Donald Glover co-star in a new film called Guava Island.
Meanwhile, Jay-Z was among the leading voices protesting against 21 Savage’s arrest earlier this week – branding it a “disgrace.”
