There are a few events in history that are true game changes. The discovery that the world wasn’t flat. The discovery of penicillin. And now — the discovery that we’ve all been pronouncing Rihanna’s name totally wrong for years. Yeah. Let that sink in for a second.

This shocking news was reported over a while ago but it’s still sinking in. Rihanna pronounced her name totally differently in a video telling her fans she was now on Snapchat. How the world didn’t shift on it’s axis is still a mystery to us. Check out the video below and see if you can hear the mind blowing sound clip.

Right there! Did you hear that?! Rihanna didn’t pronounce her name Re-ahh-nah, she said it like Re-anna. What in the world is going on? Are we going to find out that Frank Ocean’s name is pronounced Frunk?

The important take away from all of this is that Rihanna clearly isn’t troubled by this in the slightest. She’s just too busy slaying the game. But as one of our music queens, we will of course bow to her will and pronounce her name right from now on.

So keep killin’ it in the music industry and we’re super sorry about the literal years of doing that wrong. Sorry, Rihanna!!
