Does Rihanna's new hairstyle mean a new album is coming?
Rihanna gives fans a glimpse of her real hair on Instagram

Rihanna can arguably pull off any type of hairstyle whether long, short, black, red or curly. But the Work singer has finally unveiled the do which fans have wanted to see most – her own real, natural hair – and, somehow, they are convinced it means her ninth album is on its way.

Because, what else could it mean?

In a boomerang Instagram story, the 30-year-old is seen wearing her hair in a set of ponytails with the tongue-in-cheek caption: Troll.

Naturally, fans were delighted to see Rihannas real hair without a wig or weave and came up with an interesting theory as to why she has gone au naturel. According to armchair detectives, RiRi is wearing nine ponytails to symbolise her forthcoming ninth studio album. Therefore, fans believe her next release, tentatively titled R9, is imminent.

Authorities say a man who broke into Rihanna???s Hollywood Hills home and spent 12 hours there has been charged with stalking the singer, who was not at home at the time. Los Angeles County prosecutors say 26-year-old Eduardo Leon of Fullerton was charged Monday with felony counts of stalking, burglary and vandalism, and a misdemeanor count of resisting arrest.

Another said: Do yall think rihanna is filming some form of movie like a visual album? or something similar to the anti diaries, the 4 hair changes in two weeks shes probably filming something [sic].

A third also made the connection between Rihannas hair and new music, adding: Everytime Rihanna makes a major change to her hair is when shes about to drop an album so if that wig goes on yours is coming off [sic].

Lets hope so!

If youre wondering how Rihanna manages to keep her natural hair in such great condition, youre in luck as her hair stylist previously revealed her secret. Yusef Williams told Refinery29 that RiRi nurtures her tresses with ORS Olive Oil Moisturising Hair Oil, which costs less than £4.
