Rihanna is once again teasing fans about when she might finally drop some new music. On Thursday, RiRi took to her Instagram Story to share a pic of a soundboard along with the caption, "Gang. Back in the STU." ET notes that displayed on the soundboard was the name of Pharrell and Chad Hugo's hip/hop-funk production team, The Neptunes--hinting that a collaboration may be coming up. Last week, the 31-year-old Rihanna told The Cut, "I’m going to be in the studio. I’m so excited actually. I can’t say who I’m working with, but it’s somebody I’ve been wanting to work with for a long time--Okay, I’ll tell you. [It’s] Pharrell." RiRi last teased fans about her upcoming ninth studio album back in December when she wrote alongside a clip of a puppy hopping around inside a cardboard box, "Me listening to R9 by myself and refusing to release it."
