Rihanna has set the record straight about her rumored collaboration with Lady Gaga. In a recent interview, she revealed that she’s doing a reggae album but denied that she’s collaborating with the Oscar-winning “Poker Face” singer.

Rumors about Rihanna collaborating with Lady Gaga started to swirl around last March. News came after several outlets claimed that Lady Gaga’s sixth studio album would include music and fashion superstar Rihanna.

One publication claimed that Lady Gaga following Rihanna on Instagram after announcing “LG6” on Twitter was proof that she’s joining forces with the singer for a new project. It was reportedly a big deal, considering that Lady Gaga only follows 39 people — most of whom she has worked with in the past.

Rihanna also tweeted the lyrics of Lady Gaga’s song “Sexxx Dreams,” five years after she referenced the hit song on Twitter, which prompted fans to ask for a collaboration. Recent reports claim that Rihanna’s tweet was trying to suggest that Lady Gaga and Rihanna are finally indulging their fans after 5 years of social media pressure.

For years, fans have been positive that a collaboration is on the cards because while Lady Gaga and Rihanna’s music styles vary, they share a lot in common. A publication pointed out that both Rihanna and Lady Gaga are Grammy winners and have had multiple hits on the Hot 100 Billboard.

“We’re pretty sure any collaboration between these two powerhouses would result in nothing short of an absolute chart-topping banger with probably the most stylish music video of the year,” the report said.

Addressing the rumors earlier this week, Rihanna said that no collaboration is happening between her and Lady Gaga. The singer said that while it is true that she’s doing a reggae album, there is no truth in reports that she’s doing it with Lady Gaga.

Asked why she thinks fans have been buzzing about their collaboration, Rihanna said it must be because of Lady Gaga following her on social media. “Maybe because she followed me on Instagram,” she said. “It’s not in the books right now, but I’m not against it,” she added.
