    Next month, major world leaders will come together at the G20 Summit in Hamburg to discuss some ~very important~ issues facing humanity. And as the ambassador to the Global Partnership for Education, Rihanna had a MESSAGE FOR 'EM.

    She started with President of Argentina, Mauricio Macri:

    hey there @mauriciomacri, what's your plan for Argentina to commit to #FundEducation? 🇦🇷

    She then moved on to that handsome little slice of Canadian bacon, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau:

    🇨🇦 @JustinTrudeau I know you had our backs during the #GlobalCitizen Festival, will you recommit Canada to #FundEducation?

    Next up was France's newly elected president, Emmanuel Macron:

    🇫🇷 bonjour @EmmanuelMacron, will France commit to #FundEducation?

    Germany got a shoutout, too:

    Germany, I'm checking in to see where we are on the commitment to #FundEducation w/ @GPforEducation? @regsprecher, I'm depending on you!😊 🇩🇪

    Hi @Rihanna, education is a key area of German development policy. We have nearly doubled spending since 2013.Thank… https://t.co/uptrfusYbC

    Look. Rihanna's got over 74 million Twitter followers. That's literally the population of a midsize nation, so she's basically a world leader, too. My point being, SOMEONE INVITE THIS LADY TO THE G20 SUMMIT.
