Big Sean, who is supporting RiRi on the tour’s European leg, also wrote a heartfelt note following the tragedy. “Prayers up for the whole world right now, love is needed now more than ever. We in this together,” he said.

The New York Times reports that 84 people died and 202 were injured in what has been called a terrorist attack on a Bastille Day celebration in Nice.

Festivities around the city were canceled in the wake of the tragedy. Along with Rihanna’s “ANTI World Tour” stop, Saturday’s Nice Jazz Festival was also nixed. RiRi’s tour is set to continue July 17 in Frankfurt, Germany.
