GloRilla’s grandma has ended the debate on whether Glo is Rihanna’s doppelgänger. The Memphis rapper posted a voicemail from her grandma on Twitter.

“How come you didn’t tell me Rihanna and Gloria look so much alike?” the elderly woman asks. “I can’t tell them girls apart on TV, that girl looks just like your daughter. OK, talk to you later girl, bye.”

Glo captioned the post, “My [grandma] confirmed it [3X laughing emoji] [red heart emoji]. Y’all be hating byeee!!! @rihanna hey sis I luv you.”

Fans quickly flocked to the replies writing, “[laughing emoji]Black southern grannies are different.”

Another added that she should use her grandmother’s message in a song, “use this as [an] intro [crying laughing emoji].”

“You is Tasha Mack Jr. Idk what grams talking bout,” referring to the Wendy Raquel Robinson, the actress that played Tasha Mack on the television show The Game.

On the music side, Glo has been busy as she released a bonus edition of her debut EP Anyways, Life’s Great… last week. Lil Durk and Trina make appearances on the bonus EP on tracks “Ex’s (Phatnall Remix)” and “Nut Quick (Remix)” respectively. The new edition also includes “Don’t Know (GloRidaz Bonus).” The original album, which was released in November of last year, included nine tracks with guest appearances from Cardi B (“Tomorrow 2”), Yo Gotti (“Blessed”), Nikki Pooh (“Get That Money”) and her breakout single “F.N.F. (Let’s Go)” with HitKidd.
