Speculation is rife that Rihanna may be about to release new music for the first time in more than two years.

The megastar sent fans wild by posting a video to her Instagram story of herself in the recording studio. But while she can be seen singing and dancing, the video was posted with no sound – leading fans to believe she is listening to her own new music.

The teaser has excited fans who have been patiently waiting for Rihanna's ninth studio album, which she confirmed was on the way back in April. The following month, Vogue's Chioma Nnadi revealed the album would be reggae, inspired by Bob Marley.

Her last album, Anti, was released in 2016 to critical acclaim. But since then Rihanna has been taking time out to concentrate on her Fenty Beauty line and her Savage lingerie range.

Since the 15-second video was posted to Instagram on Saturday, fans have been sharing their excitement on Twitter:
