Rihanna and Donald Glover are working on a mystery project together, and Twitter has some theories

Hold up, Marvel, because the most ambitious crossover in history may be taking place under our very noses. Except we have no idea what it is yet. Photos of Rihanna and Donald Glover are making their way around the internet, fueling speculation that the pair are working on a very secret project together.

The photos were reportedly snapped in Cuba, ET Online reports, and made their way to Cuban publication Vistar‘s website before legions of Twitter users picked them up. Now, the people of the internet are channeling their inner Nancy Drews, sleuthing around for further clues as to what this mystery project could be. And there are a number of rumors making their way to the forefront. false false

The most popular (and detailed) theory comes courtesy of Vistar itself.

It claims the pair are on the Caribbean island filming a musical movie together called Guava Island. According to the publication, Black Panther star Letitia Wright and Game of Thrones alum Nonso Anozie are also set to appear in the film, the latter of whom was spotted on the rumored film’s set. Vistar also reported that frequent Childish Gambino (Glover’s musical stage name) collaborator Hiro Murai is directing the project. false

However, not everyone is satisfied with the theory that Rihanna and Donald Glover are filming a movie together.

Others speculate that the two could be working on music together—a collaboration we would live for, btw—and are filming a music video. After all, Rihanna revealed earlier this summer that new music is on its way. false



Adding to the theory that the pair are collaborating musically, earlier this week, Rihanna confirmed that Childish Gambino would be performing at her upcoming Diamond Ball.

But while fans are scouring the internet for information like they’re Nine Ball in Ocean’s 8, most fans are just excited to see Rihanna and Glover working on any project together.


Honestly, both theories are packing heavy punches, evidence-wise.

We can definitely see the multi-faceted performers collaborating on a number of projects. As we continue our endless speculation, let’s just hope this is the first of many projects Rihanna and Glover team up for.
