10 April 2019, 11:50 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Guava Island director Hiro Murai has confirmed that the Childish Gambino and Rihanna movie will premiere this weekend.

Last week an advert for Guava Island appeared on Spotify, but the movie/visual album was yet to be confirmed by someone involved.

Now the director, Hiro Murai (Atlanta, "This Is America", "Sober"), has confirmed the premiere date for the project, revealing the same banner that appeared on Spotify.

Guava Island will be premiered on 13 April, which is the night after Childish Gambino's headline slot at the first weekend of Coachella.

Pitchfork reported yesterday that the movie would be shown on YouTube as part of the Coachella live stream.

Rihanna and Gambino were first spotted working on the movie in Cuba last summer, and later Gambino aired a trailer for the movie at a New Zealand film festival.

Guava Island will be streamed on YouTube on 13 April.
