The two artists were reportedly filming in Cuba for the project called “Guava Island”. The film directed by Glover's longtime collaborator Hiro Murai, credited to Glover’s alter ego as "Childish Gambino". The filmmaker had worked with Glover on some episodes of FX show 'Atlanta'videos 'Sober' and 'This Is America'.
The clips depict both Rihanna and Glover appearing in a very idyllic setup. Glover says during the fast-paced clip. "We live in a paradise, but we don't actually have the means or the time to live in here." Guava Island also stars Nonso Anozie and Letitia Wright.

For Rihanna, this role will mark the latest appearance on big-screen – after 'Valerian', 'Battleship' and 'Oceans Eight'.

Meanwhile, Glover recently announced that his forthcoming album and current 'This Is America' tour will be his last as Childish Gambino. However, due to injuring his foot, he has to reschedule many dates.
