Childish Gambino and Rihanna Spotted on Movie Set Together in Cuba
Childish Gambino and Rihanna have sent social media into a frenzy after posing for a photo together in Cuba. The picture, which features a shirtless Gambino and smiling Rihanna, was reportedly taken on the set of their upcoming film, Guava Island.
The movie is believed to be directed by Atlanta director Hiro Murai and reportedly also features actors Letitia Wright and Nonso Anozie, Cuban site Vistar reports. Murai has directed the majority of Atlanta episodes and is also the man behind Gambino's "This Is America" video.
Although Gambino and RiRi have been keeping quiet about the movie, photos of Rihanna filming in Cuba surfaced last week. Gambino has also been enlisted for Rihanna's Diamond Ball and will perform at the charity event on Sept. 13 in New York.
New film projects from Gambino will have to hold fans of Atlanta over, as the FX series' third season won't air until 2019. While the series won't be airing for a while, Gambino says it's worth the wait and has compared the upcoming season to Kanye West's Graduation album.
“I align the seasons I think, to me, like Kanye records,” he explained in June. “I feel like this is our ‘Graduation.’ This is probably our most accessible but also the realest—an honest version of it—and I feel like the most enjoyable, like the third album.”
