Earlier this month, TikTok user @notavrey posted a video that’s now going viral over her Bad Gal RiRi vibes. “You’re so used to your own features you don’t realize what you look like to others,” the video reads as Avery lip-syncs to “Feels” by Kehlani while utilizing the Long Face filter. By the time she hits the lyric, “you give me feels,” the filter goes away and BAM: you’re looking at baby Rihanna with blonde hair.
Currently, the video has 3.4 million views and over 500,000 likes. One user commented, “I ran to the comments knowing y’all calling her Rihanna.” They were absolutely right.
“Rihanna…sorry…Rihanna…sorry,” another user wrote, while one superfan chose to treat the TikToker just like the Savage x Fenty mogul, writing, “you’re not slick Rih, give us an album.”
Who knows how long it will take for the real Rihanna to find this long-lost twin, considering the “Love on the Brain” singer definitely caught wind of her last viral look-a-like. Just over a year ago, TikTok user Priscila Beatrice uploaded a viral video of herself impersonating the singer that led everyone—including Rihanna—to question everything.
In the clip, Beatrice is seen with her back toward the camera as Dej Loaf’s “Back Up” plays in the background. The words “OMG [is that] Rihanna” then pop up before she turns around and reveals her face, with her makeup and hair styled exactly like Rihanna did when she won her first-ever fashion award for Fenty at the Fashion Awards 2019.
“Where the album sis? #R9,” the actual Rihanna replied to The Shade Room’s Instagram upload, as seen in this post by Comments By Celebs.
Funny she should ask. Rihanna recently revealed that her upcoming album is on its way, and it’s going to be “different” than anything we’ve heard from her before. “You’re not going to expect what you hear. Just put that in your mind,” Rihanna said recently before the taping of her Savage X Fenty Show Vol. 3 event, per Billboard. The special will airs in full on September 24 on Amazon Prime Video.
She continued, “Whatever you know of Rihanna is not going to be what you hear…I’m really experimenting. Music is like fashion. You should be able to play. I should be able to wear whatever I want. I treat music the same way. So I’m having fun and it’s going to be completely different.”
