There were already early rumblings of a Rihanna performance at the upcoming Grammy Awards on February 8, and now, they’re getting even louder.
After Rihanna’s drummer confirmed (and then subsequently deleted) an upcoming performance, the award show itself added further fuel to the fire yesterday by mysteriously tweeting eight anchor emoji symbols in a row. “#GRAMMYs 2.8.15,” the message concluded. Anchor emojis…you know, like the Rihanna Navy? And exactly 8 of them, like Rih’s endlessly awaited upcoming album, R8? It sure seems like a not-so-subtle hint to us.
Rihanna’s 27th Birthday is February 20th. I wouldn’t be surprised if her single dropped on Grammy night and her album dropped her birthday week.
