It seems like everything Rihanna touches becomes… FANTABULOUS!
From her clothing line to her make-up to the sneakers to the music, she simply has a way of upping the ante in any industry and defining what folk consider a Boss. Not Lady Boss. Just Boss.
And now, according to the fever she has created on Instagram, her new book is not going to be an exception.
On a post, she says:
“Happy Valentine’s Day! I wanted to give y’all a lil bts look at what went into making #theRIHANNAbook …still crazy to look back at the memories!

Rihanna is finally assuring her fans that 2020 will be that year she’ll be releasing new music. The Fenty CEO recently revealed that she is back in the studio and is working with The Neptunes.
On Thursday night, Rihanna shared an image of a soundboard in her Instagram stories that said The Neptunes and wrote “gang. back in da STU.”
Fans of Ri almost gave up their hopes of expecting new music as it was evident the Anti singer was occupied with her multi-billion dollar fashion and beauty empire, Fenty Beauty, Fenty, and Savage x Fenty.
In a recent interview with The Cut, she touched base on her coming album by saying she will be spending Valentine’s Day in the studio.
“I’m going to be in the studio,” she said. “I’m so excited actually. I can’t say who I’m working with, but it’s somebody I’ve been wanting to work with him for a long time.”
Later on in the interview, she unfolded and said that she will be working with Pharrell.
Is Rihanna possibly making another rap record? The last time Rihanna and Pharrell joined forces was in 2017 for N.E.R.D.’s “Lemon” where the pop star dropped some fiery bars.
However, the last talk about the direction of Rihanna’s new album was two years ago in speculation to be a Reggae infused work. In a 2018 profile with Vogue, it was reported the Barbados born icon was seeking to create a reggae album and even desired to work with legendary Jamaican producer Supa Dups.
Rihanna’s return to the studio, not mentions in interviews or social media posts, but an actual visual is a more promising sign that the Navy queen is on the verge of manifesting some new tunes. Now the real question is, with all the revelations, exactly what genre will Rihanna’s next album be?
For quite some time, rumors that the recently single Rihanna andA$AP Rocky were either becoming an item or already were together on the low. While neither artist has confirmed or denied the relationship, Twitter has all the commentary from the sidelines.
As reported by The Sun, a tabloid publication in the United Kingdom, the pair are apparently linked at the hip despite no official statement. The publication’s assessment of the union seems to be based merely on insider sources close to Rihanna. The source adds that the reason why the Barbadian superstar split from her billionaire boyfriend Hassan Jameel was that they lived entirely different lifestyles.
Countering these claims, a source told E! News that the rumor of Rihanna and Rocky dating isn’t as deep as Twitter wants it to be and that the two are just being friendly and kicking it as they’re in the same worlds of music and fashion.
“Rihanna is single. She just got out of a long intense relationship with Hassan. She’s wants to be single and isn’t going to jump into something,” E! News shared via a source. “She’s hanging out with ASAP Rocky, but she is not dating him.”
Since 2013, Rihanna and Rocky have combated the rumors ever since the singer and businesswoman appeared in the rapper’s “Fashion Killa” video. With the report from The Sun, chatter on Twitter has been robust this early Thursday morning (Jan 30).
We’ve got the best of the reactions to the Rihanna and A$AP Rocky dating rumors below.
