In a tribute to the state she achieved much of her success in, Rihanna has announced her new fragrance, ‘Nude’.
Taking to Instagram, the 24 year old trumpeted the expansion of “Brand Fenty”, writing:
‘Nude’ follows the model’s Reb’l Fleur, which – as her debut scent – has enjoyed moderate success upon release last year.
She may sound like she’s in a washing machine when she “sings”, yet one can’t knock RiRi’s corporate hustle. The industry, as the grave-stones of many a promising career has shown, is unforgiving. Indeed, “talent” has shifted from a necessity for success to merely a welcome “extra”. Hence, we can’t knock Team Ri for chewing and digesting that memo, and working it to their full advantage.
Then again, it’s doubtful they had much of a choice, it’s not like her albums are flying off the shelves. 360 revenue from projects such as this are a “must” if her nasal neigh is to remain relevant in the years to come.
