Amidst her achievements, Rihanna made her debut for Pharrell Williams’ Louis Vuitton collection during Paris Fashion Week. The pop singer, who is expecting her second child with A$AP Rocky, also expressed her plans to release a new album. She stated her desire to release the album this year, emphasizing the need for the right background music to accompany her visuals, as she aims to create music and videos that truly embody her artistic vision.

Rihanna’s success, both in music and fashion, continues to captivate audiences worldwide. Her dedication to her craft and her ground breaking achievements have solidified her status as an influential figure in the music industry. To experience her talent, listeners can stream Rihanna’s eighth studio album, ‘ANTI’ Deluxe, on Spotify.
