Is R8 about to drop?

Rihanna will headline the NCAA’s March Madness Music Festival, a three-day festival that kicks off on April 3, it has been announced.

Her new tune “American Oxygen” is being used as the official song for this year’s March Madness so it’s fitting that she’s being billed as the event’s big star.

Her April 4 performance will be streamed live on the NCAA’s website from Indianapolis’ White River State Park so we can all screech along to “Stay” without any qualms from the comfort of our own homes.

“FourFiveSeconds” aside, we’ve been tormented with snippet after snippet as Rihanna plays puppet master with her dedicated Navy – but will she be so cruel to repeat an old setlist with the sole addition of that one song?

Certainly by then we will have two more songs from the “HOME” soundtrack alongside “Towards The Sun” but let’s not front, we all want love the real deal.

Hopefully this means we’ll be getting “R8” very soon.

Bless us with new music, Rihsus, please.
