The answer is simple. Instead of making music, Rihanna has merely been saving the world. From donating to countless organizations while also expanding her Fenty empire, Rihanna has been keeping busy just fine without working on R9. Check out what she’s been up to in the meantime.
1.Supporting Black Lives Matter
Have you seen the slow-motion video of Rihanna walking gracefully in a pink tie dye dress? The dress was specially given to her by designer brand ASAI. After upgrading the availability of the dress, the brand vowed to donate the proceeds to three charities including Black Lives Matter. Fenty Beauty, Savage X Fenty and Fenty (clothing) also showed support for Blackout Tuesday by not selling a single product for the day in peaceful protest. Savage X Fenty is also donating revenue toward BLM and the Bail Project.
Rihanna has thrown over five million dollars into the effort to fight the coronavirus through her charity, the Clara Lionel Foundation. As New York, New Orleans and Puerto Rico stood as one of the most vulnerable COVID-19 locations, Rihanna donated money toward hospital supplies to serve victims. As quarantine cooped everyone into their homes, Rihanna also gave money toward LA shelters helping victims of domestic violence as well as first responders who couldn’t afford to stay home.
3.Aid to Barbados
Rihanna recently teamed up with Jack Dorsey donating 4,000 iPads to students in Barbados. Prime Minister of Barbados Mia Amor Mottley extended her gratitude. “I want to thank our own Ambassador Fenty and her Clara Lionel Foundation as well as the Jack Dorsey Start Small Foundation…” As the concern for sending children and teachers back to school increases, these tablets will help students learn from home.
4.A Whole Skincare Line
Almost out of nowhere, Rihanna dropped a teaser promoting her new Fenty SKIN line making its debut July 31. In one video, she gave a peak at a facial cleanser and moisturizer that may be featured in the upcoming line. In the following clip, A$AP Rocky and Lil’ Nas X were featured in promotion to the “new culture of skincare.” Rihanna offered a special preorder if you subscribe to the website.
Rumor has it, Rihanna has depleted her plans for her 9th album for the time being. However, tabloids have speculated her recent communication with Little Mix songwriter Kamille. Whether we get new music tomorrow or never, Rihanna’s empire has done enough to satisfy our Fenty cravings.
