Rihanna has sparked suggestions Chris Brown is on the cover of her next musical release
Rihanna has unveiled the artwork for her single, Stay, and it shows her in a close embrace with a man who bares more than a striking resemblance to Chris Brown.
The blurred picture sees Rihanna snuggling into the neck of a man with his back to the camera. Immediately after the Bajan singer shared the snap on Instagram, speculation mounted that the man, boasting neck tattoos and a gold chain, is in fact the singer’s on-off boyfriend, Chris Brown.
And it would make perfect sense if it did turn out to be the star – after all, he already features on Rihanna’s latest album, Unapologetic, and it’s widely believed Stay is about Rihanna’s struggle to move on from her relationship with Chris.
The lyrics to Stay, which is a collaboration with Mikky Ekko, include: ‘Not really sure how to feel about it, something in the way you move, makes me feel like I can’t live without you. Funny you’re the broken one but I’m the only one who needed saving.'
What do you think? Is the man in the artwork Chris Brown? Let us know what you think below.
