She is currently working on tracks for her eighth album but Rihanna made time in her busy schedule to have dinner with a mystery man during the week.
The 26-year-old singer was spotted at Nobu in New York on Friday where she dined with a tall and handsome man before the duo left together.
The mysterious date comes on the heels of news that Rihanna and ex boyfriend Chris Brown may be over for good, seeing as the rapper silenced breakup rumors with girlfriend Karrueche Tran last week as the duo were spotted out for their own date.
The pop star kept warm against the chilly New York air in a sheepskin jacket with leggings and matching boots while her date wore a baseball cap to compliment the lady, in addition to donning a bright yellow jacket, black jeans and boots.
Despite her time for fun, the songstress was seen heading back to work on Wednesday as she was seen heading to a recording studio in Soho.
Rihanna posted a pic on Instagram soon afterward, posting a teaser clip from one of her new songs in a video captioned, “P—kin around in da studio.”
She later told fans to be on the look out for new R8 news, tweeting, “Any news about R8 will be delivered directly from me.”
Rumors have been circulating about the possibility of a release date, some of which now are claiming the songstress is looking to secretly drop the album on Christmas. Prior rumors suggested that the album would be released on Black Friday, however, reports were quickly shut down by the songstress herself.
