Kanye West and Rihanna have been tearing up the internet and the airwaves with their new Paul McCartney–assisted single, "FourFiveSeconds." Prior to that, they jammed on the smash single "All of the Lights," from 'Ye's 2010 opus My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. And as Eminem and Rih proved last year, just a couple of hit songs together equals a good enough reason to do at least a few superhero tag-team concerts together.

Convincing rumors have been percolating about a 'Ye/Rih tour for a few weeks now, but a new image on Twitter seems to confirm it. Check it out, and do your best to gauge if this is, indeed, real life:

The photo reportedly came from the official Twitter for Kanye's creative firm, DONDA, before being deleted. (But, y'know, screengrabs run the world.) The BBC previously had its hands on a similarly convincing document:

It's not a hard rumor to believe, considering that "FourFiveSeconds" has been confirmed as a single for Kanye's upcoming seventh album, So Help Me God, as well as a single for Rihanna's upcoming eighth album, which still has no title. Also: Rih-Rih supported Kanye on 2008's Glow in the Dark Tour. Also also: Before "All of the Lights," Reezy and Yeezy collaborated on Jay Z's "Run This Town," from 2009's The Blueprint 3. So yeah—we won't be surprised if/when this 2015 tour gets confirmed.
