  1. On April 11, 2011, Rihanna released the remix version of S&M, the fourth single off her fifth studio album Loud. It featured Britney Spears as a guest artist. The song, recorded in 2010, was originally written and produced by Stargate (Mikel S. Eriksen + Tor Erik Hermansen) and Sandy Vee, with additional songwriting by Ester Dean. It's an uptempo EDM track that talks about ***, sadomasochism (S&M) and bondage, though Rihanna revealed the lyrics were metaphoric and it was really about a "love-hate relationship with the media". It was released as the fourth single off her Loud album in January, and it had already reached #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 before the remix featuring Britney dropped. A music video, directed by Melina Matsoukas was released on February 1st, gaining a lot of positive reviews, but also the ban in eleven countries due to its explicit nature, as well as a lawsuit from David LaChapelle and Philipp Paulus who both claimed the video violated the copyright of each of their photoshoots. After the success the song had on radio despite the critics, Rihanna asked her fans on Twitter about potential collaborators to jump on a remix of the track. Britney turned out to be the most popular suggestion, and that's how the duet came about. In the new version, Rihanna and Britney both sing on the original chorus, but Britney sings a whole new second verse, written by herself. Rihanna talked to Elvis Duran on radio about this feature saying Despite Rihanna's interest in doing a music video for the track, this ultimately never came to fruition. The day before the release, Rihanna wrote on Twitter "I got a #**** collabo comin your way supa dupa soon!!!! OH YEAH!!! By popular demand. Its BRITNEY *****!!!! One of the biggest worldwide popstars! U gangsta #EPIC" to which Britney replied "You're such a tease! I like it, like it... You think they're ready Ri Ri?". The week after the release of the remix, S&M finally topped the Billboard Hot 100, after 293,000 digital downloads across all of its versions, the Britney remix counting for 66% of the overall sales. It became Rihanna's 10th #1 single on the chart, becoming only the ninth act to achieve this and the fifth female to do so, behind Mariah Carey, Madonna, Whitney Houston and Janet Jackson. It became Britney's fifth #1 hit, and her second one that year, after Hold It Against Me debuted at #1 in January. In May of that year, Rihanna performed the song at the Billboard Music Awards, with Britney making a surprise appearance towards the end. Britney also performed the track on her Femme Fatale Tour that summer, in a medley with her debut single ...Baby One More Time.
  2. But just one song though She also posted about her album 'ANTI' and it's success after five years of it's release. How do we feel are we ready for some new Riri or have we given up ?
  3. aw this is so wholesome
  4. Whose retirement would you gladly bake a cake for and help in packing their bags? I’m baking a few cakes and packing a few bags, but I bid Katy Perry and Drake a Bon Voyage. Y’all had a good run and I hope you like chocolate cake
  5. According to Variety, Jay-Z sold Tidal. Due to Jay-Z’s recent Ace of Spades deal with LVMH, all Tidal co-owners including Nicki Minaj have made a $8.9m cash out. ✈️ When we get fly, we take flight ✈️
  6. Looks like we won't get R9 until 2025 ladies. Savage x Fenty, Rih's lingerie line, was just valued at $1 billion and is on track to be the global lingerie leader by 2025. According to Forbes... SxF raised its $115 million Series B funding round Posted revenue growth of more than 200% last year Increased its active VIP member base by more than 150% Rihanna’s stake is worth an estimated $375 million Fenty Skin racked up sales of $30 million in less than four months on its e-store She's a business BOSS. Thoughts on the queen of lingerie, Exhale? Related:
  7. She doesn't release music for five years now. So, as a birthday gift and a way of spending time during lockdown, I put some thought in all her discography, and regrouped her singles and some personal favourites into 8 youtube playlists, each one with a theme and mood. I called it RIHFLECTION: The Unnoficial Greatest Hits. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHLpalz6ecVr82qE_57Pp-g/playlists VOL I: Music of The Sun VOL II: Big City Bright Lights VOL III: Tougher Than a Lion VOL IV I Can't Get Enough VOL V: We All Want the Same Thing VOL VI: I've Loved/I've Lost VOL VII: We Shine Together VOL VIII: Hope you like it! I don't have much talent for photoshop, so I didn't make a good album cover. If anyone feels inspired, feel free
  8. Rihanna is being accused of cultural appropriation for wearing a necklace of Hindu god Lord Ganesha in one her new promotional photos for her lingerie line, Savage x Fenty. There's a ton of Tweets about it. You may recall she was recently under fire for appropriating Islam at one of her fashion shows. Exhale, do you think this crosses the line? Related:
  9. LVMH announced they're closing down Rihanna's Paris-based fashion line, "Fenty." However, they're not parting ways with Riri. Instead, they're going to focus on her money-makers: Fenty Beauty and Fenty Skin. R9 is never coming Related:
  10. International pop sensation and business mogul Rihanna has voiced her opinion supporting protesting farmers in India. As an Indian, its great that not only my ultimate fave but an international celebrity is given such non-western issues attention What do you guys think? lemme know.
  11. Can we all agree 2011 was an amazing year for music? So many bops, back when music was about parties, clubs and nothing else (except for some). That year we had SO MANY huge artists like Britney, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, One Direction, David Guetta, Avril Lavigne, Adele, Maroon 5, Bruno Mars, Nicki MInaj, Selena Gomez, P!nk, J-Lo and many others perhaps not so well known but with BOPS. Also we had Rebbeca's biggest hit "Friday", never forget that one!! Not sure about you, but take me back to that year one more time please. What songs were your favorites? PS: "Femme Fatale" also turns 10 in a few months, i can't believe it!
  12. Rihanna is rocking a mullet right now. Miley is mad Update: New pics Earlier: Photos via Daily Mail
  13. The way the lamb basically said. Why are you using Rihanna when you know exactly she was snubbed that year, the same way Mariah was. Rihanna herself was even nominated for Best recording package for ANTi (Deluxe edition)
  14. Update: Pharrell, who's working on R9, commented on Rihanna in a new interview with Allure: “Rih is in a different place right now. Like, wow. She’s from a different world.” Williams claims that this world might be Venus, which he supported with recent suggestions that there might be life on Earth’s next door neighbor. “I‘m willing to bet, because Venus is gaseous, that if they had a telescope that could zoom through all that ****, you’d see Rih laying there naked." Earlier: SHOOK!!! I love the Neptunes (Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo). This bish is really making us wait and wait for R9, but if she's collaborating with them then I'll wait. Related:
  15. Folklore has officially went Platinum in the US by The Recording industry Association of America (RIAA) She now joins Madonna, Mariah Carey and Rihanna as the only females to have 8 Albums platinum. Madonna has ten platinum studio albums Mariah carey has 11 studio platinum albums. Only Rihanna and Taylor Swift are the only female recording Acts this century to achieve this. But it took Taylor the fastest as It took nearly 15 years since Music of the Sun to achieve platinum status in the US. Congrats, Ladies.
  16. Taylor Swift just scooched passed Rihanna for having the most certified singles for a female artist ever. The achievement comes after the RIAA issued Taylor Platinum certifications for four Lover tracks, including: “You Need To Calm Down” — 3x Platinum “Lover” — 2x Platinum “ME!” — 2x Platinum “The Man” — Platinum It's worth noting that folklore surpassed Lover in sales by a mile, so she'll likely extend her own record in the future. Queen of streaming did that
  17. Russian Roulette was dropped on October 27th. I listened to it and I was so HYPED. The full album came out on November 20th 2009. That album made my whole winter and was the highlight of my whole year. I feel like it got slept on too much tho.
  18. Rihanna is under fire for appropriating Islam. At her most recent Fenty fashion shows, Rih used a remix containing narration of a Ḥadīth. Ḥadīth refers to what Muslims believe to be a record of the words, actions, and the silent approval of the Islamic prophet Muhammad. She also had models wearing scarfs around their head which some interpret as a take on a hijab. Update: Rihanna has since apologized. Thoughts, Exhale? Related:
  19. Rihanna previewed the instrumental of one of her new songs titled "Real High." We know it's the real deal because the track appeared on the credits of the Amazon Prime livestream. Sounds litty. I am so perched for her new music (even if it's not coming until the pandemic ends). Thoughts on the song? Related:
  20. I thought I’d make a thread for the icon and legend, Rihanna. What are your favorite Rihanna songs?
  21. Rihanna opened up about the new music she's worked on, but reveals we'll have to wait a little longer to hear it because she can't release / tour it due to the pandemic. "What do I feel personally? What do I want to put out, and as an artist, how do I want to play it with my art? How do I want to interpret that?" "How do I want to reimagine it because it's been so structured before," she told the AP via Star Tribune. Rih added that there have been a ton of writing camps for the new record. "You do pop, you did this genre, you do that, you do radio, but now it's just like, what makes me happy? I just want to have fun with music. Everything is so heavy. The world that we live in is a lot. It's overwhelming every single day. And with the music, I'm using that as my outlet." "I want to go on tour but I can't, so I'm stuck with music that I love, and now I'm trying to figure out how I can even create visuals to that," she said. "That's a challenge as well. But I love challenges so, you know, I'm gonna get it done." I wonder if she's scrapping the pop and reggae albums? If Gaga can release a massive record, Rihanna can. Exhale, how we feeling about this? Related:
  22. I was watching pop music performances and stumbled across Rihanna and Britney Spears performing "S&M" live and totally loved it. Then I thought of Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande recently performing at the VMAs. Britney was the veteran, now Gaga is...Rihanna was running pop then, now Ariana is. So who do you think had the better duet performance? (To be clear I LOVE all four women. I'm not trying to start drama, and not talking about credentials, just strictly the performance in any capacity you see fit to critique, NO SHAMING ANY OF THESE WOMEN!)
