Rihanna is back in the studio working on some new music.
Seems RiRi new album might be coming this year because a very reliable sources told DancehallHipHop that she is back in the studio and she is working on something with Sizzla. The Bajan pop star was spotted recently hitting up a studio in New York and we’re told she was locked down for hours recording new material. The same source confirmed that he came recently reached out to Sizzla’s team but it’s unclear if it’s a new collaboration or a sampling. But fret not we will get the full details soon.
Last year May, Rihanna recorded a new song with Buju Banton from previously recorded material the reggae star had in his arsenal. At the time she registered a new song name “Phatty” and was spotted out in NYC wearing a Buju Banton T-Shirt. She registered a second single titled “Only One Who Knows.” That’s the clearest sign yet that she has been working on her ninths studio album. So far there are no additional details but we have good intel that it might be coming later this year.
Rihanna released her eight album ANTI on January 28, 2016. The project was released exclusively on TIDAL before being available on all digital platforms. ANTI peaked at No. 1 in the United States and Canada and spent a milestone 100 weeks on the Billboard 200 chart. It’s been since certified double platinum by the RIAA. Despite not dropping an album in two years, RiRi was the most streamed female artist on Spotify last year. She even earned a number one song on the Hot 100 chart when DJ Khaled’s “Wild Thoughts” topped the chart last summer.
Rihanna previously worked with Sizzla on the remix for “Give Me A Try.” She has always been a huge fan of the reggae/dancehall legend and even named him as one of her all-time favorite artists. Aside from dominating the music scene, the “Wild Thoughts” singer has been busy building her fashion and cosmetics empire. Last year she released her Fenty Beauty line of cosmetics which includes 40 shades of makeup. The products sold out in a matter of hours after launch.
Baller baby. DJ Khaled showered his son Asahd with gifts including a $100,000 watch for his first birthday.
The hip hop mogul rented out Liv Nightclub in Miami on Saturday night for a posh birthday party for his son Asahd Khaled. The rapper/producer dropped six figures to book the venue alone and hundreds of thousands on gifts and decoration. The bash was jungle themed and lasted five hours, hopefully, the toddler didn’t fall asleep.
Some of DJ Khaled’s famous friends were there including Diddy, who performed, and patrons say he put on a great show. The after party was held at the famous Komodo restaurant. Khaled’s wife, Nicole Tuck, hired Haute Living for the birthday and to make the ultra expensive watch for young Asahd Khaled, TMZ reported. The Franck Muller timepiece is made of rose gold and some 600 diamonds weigh in at around 11.65 karats. The price tag runs over a $100,000 which is pocket change for someone like his famous father.
DJ Khaled has been having a hugely successful year with his new album Grateful being certified platinum. The project, which was released on June 23, 2017, was executive produced by Asahd Khaled, long before he even turned one. Commercially, the album sold 149,000 album-equivalent units in the first week, with 50,000 copies being pure album sales. Grateful debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart and spawned some big Hot 100 hits like “Wild Thoughts” featuring Rihanna and Bryson Tiller, “Shining” featuring Beyonce and JAY-Z, and “I’m the One” featuring Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper and Lil Wayne. The album was released under We The Best Music and Epic Records.
Asahd Khaled is already a platinum-selling producer even before celebrating his first birthday. Pretty soon he will start laying down some bars and perhaps score his first platinum-selling record. DJ Khaled is already working on his next project due next year.
The track is one of the biggest singles this summer and has already spent 21 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart peaking at number three. Although the track was unable to overthrow the giants that are “Despacito” and “Wild Thoughts” for the top two spots, it is within it’s own right a classic. “Unforgettable” has been certified three times platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
French Montana says that he knew the song was a hit from the first time he heard it played. “As soon as I heard the track, I knew it was a hit,” Montana told TIME. “I sat with it. I chopped it up the way I wanted it to be. I feel like that’s the one record that fits everybody: African vibe, reggae vibe, techno vibe, European vibe. That’s what you call a global hit.”
The Bad Boy rapper released his new album “Jungle Rules” on July 14 with guest appearance from Alkaline, The Weeknd, Future, Max B, Pharrell, Chinx, an Swae Lee on this single “Unforgettable.” What’s next for French Montana, perhaps touring and dropping another big hit like “Unforgettable.”
Pharrell Williams is just like the rest of us, he is having “Wild Thoughts” about Rihanna after those Crop Over photos surfaced yesterday.
One user on Twitter said that Rihanna saved the world from the horrendous Usher herpes story, but I think that Pharrell had perhaps the best reaction among celebrities. The rapper/producer shared a video on Instagram that has since gone viral. “This is me looking at Rihanna right now… Damn! Damn! Damn! Damn! Damn! Damn!” Pharrell said.
Rihanna was the ultimate thirst trap on social media on Monday and today folks are still talking about how banging she looked. Not even Chris Brown could help himself from saying something and he did leave a side eye emoji comment on her photo. Still, we have to give the best reaction to Pharrell and we agree Rihanna is the baddest in the game right now. Pop star Nick Jonas also left a comment on the photo with a fire emoji. Rihanna is currently in her native Barbados for the annual Crop Over carnival parade. Last year she missed the event because she was busy touring and promoting her new album, but this year she made up for it by showing out looking like this.
Over the past few months, Rihanna has been looking a bit thicker prompting some of her fans to start questioning whether or not she is pregnant. There were some folks who were trying to fat shame her but RiRi has the last laugh because now we all hope she never loses the few extra pounds that she gained. The 29-year-old pop star has been having a great year and currently has the number two song on Billboard. We have yet to get a response from Drake but even if he doesn’t leave a comment, you can expect him to say something in a song on his next album.
Chris Brown couldn’t help himself when Rihanna start posting photos of herself from this year’s Crop Over in Barbados.
Breezy commented the side eye emoji on one of Rihanna’s photos on Instagram and her fans quickly noticed. Within an hour it received over five thousand likes and word quickly spread. Chris Brown is not alone because almost everyone on social media was talking about her banging Rihanna look. It was almost as if she is sending a message to both Chris Brown and Drake. The message was well received.
Chris Brown did receive plenty criticisms from Rihanna legion of fans with some of them blatantly telling him to kick rocks and get off her page. “Chris Brown we see you lurking around here go get a life cuz RiRi don’t want you anymore homie,” one fan wrote while another added, “I know Chris Brown didn’t just come leave a comment and think we wouldn’t notice. Boy bye.”
Drake was perhaps too busy with his annual 2017 OVO Fest event in Toronto to leave a comment, but we are pretty sure that he did saw the photos. Perhaps he will sing about it on his next album. Rihanna has been having a great year and despite not releasing an album, she currently has the number two song with “Wild Thoughts” showing a strong presence on the Hot 100. She also has a new movie “Valerian” that has been doing well at the box office.
Rihanna is currently working on her next album, but so far there is no word yet on when it will arrive or which direction she will go with it. Her last album ANTI was released in January 2016 and went platinum within the first 24 hours of its release. Considering her commercial success, these past few years have seen Rihanna slowed down how frequent she released albums and go on tours. After all, she also built a massive fashion empire that she has to share some of her time with.
Rihanna was like a real life goddess at the 2017 Crop Over event in Barbados on Monday.
The Bajan pop princess attends the annual event almost every year but this year something was very different about her. She showed off her thickness and everyone on social media was drooling over her. RiRi donned blue hair with gold embezzled outfit complete with feathers and diamond accessories. In one video posted by her on Instagram, she was dancing and singing to her chart topping new single “Wild Thoughts” with DJ Khaled and Bryson Tiller.
The single is currently sitting at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 chart only behind “Despacito” which features Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee, and Justin Bieber. Rihanna has been having a great year and she is noticeable walking around looking a bit thicker than usual and fans are already questioning if she is pregnant. Nevertheless, RiRi is currently having the time of her life, with one of the most popular songs on the airwaves and a new movie in theaters “Valerian.”
Wild thoughts is battling for 1-st place with Despacito
Wild thoughts is battling for 1-st place with Despacito.
Despacito’s first place in tops seems to be outrunned by
Rihanna’s and Dj Khaled‘s song, Wild thoughts. After 9 weeks
in the first place, Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee & Justin Bieber’s
song Despacito could be unseated by the end of this week.
On today’s chart update Rihanna’s Wild Thoughts seems to be
leading with only 1300 sales.
If this happens it means that Dj Khaled it’s gonna be
for the second time number 1 on the official singles chart.
The first song was his collaboration with Justin Bieber
at the song I’m the one. Bieber it’s like a cat, always lands
on his feet, always on the top or in the top :).
Meanwhile it seems that Calvin Harris steps up a place,
hiting a new peek, top 3, climbing up one place. Jonas Blue’s
song Mama is staying solid on 5.
A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie and Fabolous made a play on DJ Khaled’s new smash hit single “Wild Thoughts” with their version “Wild Thots.”
DJ Khaled, Rihanna and Bryson Tiller scored what is possibly the biggest hit of the summer with “Wild Thoughts” because you keep hearing the song everywhere. Now can A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie and Fabolous gain the same traction in the music market with “Wild Thots.” The song itself is catchy with a blend of auto-tune made for a club banger. The ladies who dances in the clubs will like this track.
