'How To Get Away With Murder' star Rome Flynn ecstatic after Rihanna compliments his singing skills: 'Woww'
Flynn, who plays law student Gabriel Maddox in 'How to Get Away With Murder' took to Twitter to share Rihanna's messages to him.
A few weeks ago, 'The Bold and the Beautiful' and 'How to Get Away With Murder' actor Rome Flynn shared a video of him singing a verse of John Mayer's 'Gravity' while strumming a guitar. The post has blown up since Christmas day as Flynn revealed that singer, fashion designer, and businesswoman Rihanna messaged him on Instagram to compliment his singing skills.
Flynn, who plays law student Gabriel Maddox in 'How to Get Away With Murder' took to Twitter to share Rihanna's messages to him. In the messages, Rihanna wrote, "Ri damn diculous!!!! Man I didn't know you could sing, much less sing this great! Great job man." When Flynn replied, "wow appreciate you queen," Rihanna responded, writing, "It's rare to see such well rounded talent at this level of versatility! I'm proud."
Fans are now responding to Flynn's tweet by asking him to check with her about her much-awaited next album. One fan wrote, "that’s real cute and all but did you ask her about the album."
The singer's last album, 'Anti' released in January 2016 and fans have been requesting updates on her upcoming album, titled 'R9'. In a recent post on Instagram, Rihanna trolled her fans by sharing a video, captioning it with, "update: me listening to R9 by myself and refusing to release it." In this year's November issue of Vogue, Rihanna has said that the upcoming album will not be typical reggae, but be "reggae-inspired or reggae-infused," and listeners will feel the elements of it in all the tracks.
She said, "Reggae always feels right to me. It’s in my blood. It doesn’t matter how far or long removed I am from that culture, or my environment that I grew up in; it never leaves. It’s always the same high. Even though I’ve explored other genres of music, it was time to go back to something that I haven’t really homed in on completely for a body of work.”
Perhaps Rihanna and Rome Flynn could collaborate in the future for a song that's sure to be a hit.
