There’s some exciting news for Rihanna’s Navy. Apparently, the “Needed Me” singer has recently hit the studio with super producers The Neptunes.

“Bad Gal Ri Ri” took some time away from trolling her over her highly-anticipated ninth studio album R9 and had a recording session with Pharrell and Chad Hugo, which she teased on social media via a recent Instagram story.

Ri Ri uploaded a photo of recording equipment and she wrote, “gang. back in da STU.” “The Neptunes'” name was lit up in green lettering on the equipment. Check it out below.
