R9 is heavy on the minds of Rihanna fans the world over especially as 2020 comes to a close.

With many praying for a last-minute release, Robyn Rihanna Fenty is "making sport" at her fans who've been giving her heat for years now.

Less than a week before this decade ends, RiRi is having what appears to be a final laugh at her fans who are pressing hard for R9.

She posted a video of a fluffy puppy jumping animatedly and excitedly in sync with House of Pain's Jump Around track with the caption:

"Update: me listening to R9 by myself and refusing to release it."

The Instagram post has amassed over 14 million views in one week.

Of the viewers, SZA commented LOLLLL and she started getting some heat from her fans too who are looking for a new SZA album as well. Then some fans said maybe SZA is not laughing with them but at them because she just may be on the R9 album too and in on Rihanna's joke. SZA's comment was most popular with over 13,000 likes.

Regardless, many fans are calling for Rihanna to "quit joking" and mamguying. They're hoping the wait is over.
