Earlier this year, Rihanna and Donald Glover (a.k.a. Childish Gambino) shared a joint photo on Instagram which instantly led fans to speculate on if the pair were working on a secret joint project. Well, it looks like fans may finally have their answer as it has just been revealed that the musicians will co-star in a new film called Guava Island.
A trailer, which debuted during Glover’s second annual Pharos festival in New Zeland over the weekend – a festival described as “a gathering of the five intuitives of the human experience: tribe, ritual, experience abstraction, architecture, language” – opens with Glover singing and playing the guitar. Rihanna plays his girlfriend and partner-in-crime. The film will also feature Letitia Wright and Nonso Anozie, as well having longtime collaborator Hiro Murai (“This Is America”) serving as director.
No word yet on an official release date, but we’re super excited to see the full project.
