At last year's Twenty Quid Music Prize judging ceremony thing, we asked attendees to guess precisely when Rihanna's comeback single would appear.
Some predictions were a little optimistic ("TONIGHT LIVE RIGHT HERE") and some were great ideas ("December 13 — AKA Beyoncéday", "January 1 00:01" and so on). As it turned out only one person — who guessed March 5 — predicted that the song would come later than it actually did.
This said, an attendee by the name of Georgina Stone was responsible for making the prediction closest to the actual January 25 appearance of 'FourFiveSeconds'. Georgina guessed "January 19 (around 2pm)".
We promised on the night that the closest guess would win twenty quid so Georgina please drop us a line and we'll sort out the delivery of your prize.
From the post-'FourFiveSeconds' vantage point we all now occupy, it's hard to remember just how exciting it seemed, in the closing months of 2014, that a new Rihanna single might suddenly appear.
Still, there's always the second single. If anyone fancies guessing when that will appear, chuck your predictions in the comments below. Date and time please — we'll PayPal £4.50 to whoever turns out to be closest.
