Rihanna’s Career in Music
The 33-years-old singer has not released any music album in many years. Her last albums that topped Billboard charts were Anti and Unapologetic. But these were released five and nine years ago respectively.
She has focused a lot on various business ventures. Through which she has made a great profit. When she was having a conversation with her “Oceans 8” co-star Sarah Paulson, Rihanna said, “With every business outlet, I’m making something from a vision to reality, and that’s the thing I really enjoy. Music has led me to these other outlets, and to the things that I genuinely love. My mom pretty much worked in the beauty and perfume industry for a long time— she did make-up for people and was a make-up artist- so I always loved that.”
Later, a Vogue Profile declared that Rihanna has been doing her ninth music album. It will be her comeback after 2016’s album Anti. Then, in March she announced that she will not tell the release date, but that she was “aggressively working on music.”
