Oh, na-na, what’s her name?

Not what we think, apparently.

Rihanna may be one of the most famous stars on the planet, but it turns out we’ve been saying her name wrong this whole time!

The “Wild Thoughts” singer was born Robyn Rihanna Fenty, but has gone by her middle name “Rihanna” throughout her 16-year career.

In a video interview with British Vogue to promote a pop-up store in Paris for her new Fenty collection, the Barbados native illustrates how to correctly pronounce her name.

And it isn’t “Ree-ah-nah” like many people (especially those in the United States) are used to saying!

Instead, in the singer’s own words, it is pronounced “Ree-anna”.

Raise your hand if you were today-years-old when you found this out!
