Dominating another industry

Nine-time Grammy winning artist Rihanna has proved to the world that she can do more than just sign. After dominating the music industry, the 31-year-old paved her way into the world of beauty and fashion, excelling at every step. Now, she has set her sight on another industry, publishing.

Watch as Riri adds ‘author’ to her ever-growing list of skills. In a surprise Instagram video, the master mind behind Fenty Beauty announced the upcoming release of Rihanna, a visual autobiography she revealed has been “over five years in the making.” The autobiographical book is a collaboration between her and storied arts publisher Phaidon.

“Over 5 years in the making… happy to finally share this collection of incredible memories. Thank you to all of the photographers and artists that contributed and to @phaidonsnaps for working with me to publish my first piece of art in a new industry! Make sure you pre-order the book now on therihannabook.com 📚💗 #theRIHANNAbook.”

If her track is anything to go by, then we are sure that Rihanna’s book will be a hit, and the perfect start for her in a new industry. Just last month, during New York Fashion Week, the Work singer revolutionised what it means to throw a fashion show, with her Savage X Fenty, which was described as a “fashion musical.”
