Childish Gambino and Rihanna have been working together on Guava Island, and it looks like it could be a visual album after an advert for the project appeared on Spotify.

Last year, the pair were spotted in Cuba together, and at the time, it was rumoured to be a movie called Guava Island.

Then in November 2018, Gambino shared the trailer for the "movie" at his curated Pharos festival in New Zealand.

A few weeks ago the cinematographer for the "movie" had his Artistry résumé updated, and it revealed that Guava Island could in fact be a visual album from Gambino and Rihanna.

Now a fan has spotted a Guava Island advert banner on Spotify, which reveals the project could be landing as soon as 13 April.

Earlier this year The-Dream said Rihanna's new album was "super close" to being finished.

Gambino released new music last year, including the Hiro Murai-directed "This Is America", and his Summertime Pack double single. In December 2018 he featured on 21 Savage's i am > i was album track "monster".

While there's no confirmation from either artists about Guava Island, Spotify reckons it's arriving on 13 April.
