Next month, Rihanna will be on three W magazine Korea covers. The magazine is celebrating its tenth anniversary, and Rihanna is ironically celebrating ten years since she released her first studio album. The pop singer has released seven studio albums including her debut album Music of the Sun, Good Girl Gone Bad, Rated R, and Unapologetic. She is currently working on her next album, which will be executive produced by Kanye West.
Kanye West, Rihanna, and Paul McCartney‘s new song “FourFiveSeconds“ was released on January 24th. The record reached the Number 15 position on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and the trio performed the song at the Grammy Awards. During his red carpet interview, West discussed how Rihanna ended up contributing her vocals on the song. “I played her my album. And I told her, ‘I got a few songs with Paul McCartney.’ She couldn’t get past the record. She had to have it on her album,” the rapper told Ryan Seacrest. Rihanna has not revealed a release date for her new album. There is a possibility the pop singer will release a surprise album like her fellow musicians Beyonce, Drake, D’Angelo, and several others.
Rihanna also introduced a new bag she designed for Fendi during New York Fashion Week. The Fendi bag is part of a project that will feature five women who will each design a bag for charity; then, they will be displayed at Fendi’s flagship store until the 13th of March, and proceeds from the charity event will go to five different charities. Rihanna was also one of the stars present at West’s runway show, and the singer praised him for his fashion sense as well as his new Yeezy sneakers. “I think it was amazing. I love that he takes risks. I love that he pushes boundaries and [his runway show] was very Kanye,” Rihanna told the media.
The music video for Rihanna, Kanye West, and Paul McCartney’s “FourFiveSeconds” record was recently released. The video received a lot of attention for its fashion, in which all three recording artists wore denim. When Rihanna was asked why they decided to wear denim, she said West chose the attire for the music video. “Kanye came up with the idea of just doing some real street, denim, all-American type look. Denim never goes out of style,” Rihanna told Rolling Stone magazine.
