During the past few weeks, eyes have been on Rihanna with the launch of her Savage X Fenty partnership with Amazon, the Fenty brand takeover during Fashion Week, and her overall presence on the music, beauty, and fashion scenes. People love RiRi. For months, fans have been impatiently waiting for the superstar to release new music, leaving comments on her social media accounts and stalking the blogs for updates. Well, Rihanna has heard the pleas for something new, and she’s appeasing her fans by sharing a new project in a NEW industry. It’s just not music. It’s the book that fans didn’t know they wanted or needed, and it’s coming this fall. RiRi took to IG to share news that she’s dropping a visual autobiography that will include more than 1,000 photos of life memories. Simply titled Rihanna, it’s comprised of 500+ pages of artful images and is the product of over five years of work. According to Variety, the tome will feature snaps from the singer’s childhood in Barbados and will chronicle myriad moments in her life, from youth to the present. Published in partnership with Phaidon, the book will spotlight not only Rihanna herself, but her friends, family, and moments from her adventures in touring and business. Phaidon CEO Keith Fox is excited about the project and issued this statement via press release: Ready for the world on Oct. 24, regular editions of Rihanna will be available for $150 USD. This edition includes a removable poster and cloth binding. However, the publisher is also releasing two special, limited editions of the book.
