Rihanna‘s contributions to the creative community haven’t gone unnoticed by the Parsons School of Design.

After pop belter Kelly Clarkson put her unmistakable spin on Rihanna‘s history-making hit, ‘Love on the Brain,’ group Little Mix try their hand at the stirring ballad.
Giving the tune an acoustic twist, tuck in below to hear Little Mix’s remix of ‘Love’:
Could ‘Dreamgirls’ Success Be On The Cards For RiRi?
Rihanna is putting the rockiness of her ‘ANTI’ era behind her by making a big splash in the realm of film.
While fans quite literally beg for a video for recent hit ‘Love On The Brain,’ the Bajan belle has instead spent much of her time shooting ‘Oceans 8’ and Luc Besson’s ‘Valerian.’
Now, another movie is on her slate and this time it’s a musical.

Singer Now Joins Exclusive All-Female Club in History Books
At this point, Rihanna‘s name will be so scribbled across music history books they should just categorize everything by “records Rih has broken” and “records Rih has not broken” (we’re sure the latter may only be one page).
Just two weeks after learning her latest release, ‘Love on the Brain,’ broke a Michael Jackson and Madonna Hot 100 record (read more about that by clicking here), the ‘Anti’ songstress has now learned she’s surpassed the stats of another highly revered musical monarch: King of Rock N’ Roll Elvis Presley.
As we reported here 9 months ago, Rih tied Presley’s historic Hot 100 Top 5 record when her Calvin Harris-helmed hit, ‘This Is What You Came For,’ worked its way into the chart’s upper quintet of positions. Now, with the upgrade of ‘Brain,’ she leaves the ‘Heartbreak Hotel’ hitmaker in her rearview…
The response to Rihanna‘s latest PUMA collection has been stellar to say the very least.
In fact, its garnered so much positive attention that it’s been endorsed by Karrueche Tran, the singer’s former romantic rival.
For all of Naomi Campbell‘s illustrious success, the supermodel has had no issues saluting newer names on the block.
Such camaraderie has been showcased in her love for Rihanna.
Beyond introducing Rih’s MTV Icon segment at the VMA’s last year, the British stunner even starred in a campaign for the Bajan’s Fenty x Puma fashion line.
But it appears there’s been a rupture in the friendship.
See what we mean below…
Rihanna’s creative brilliance was showcased in Paris, France tonight when she presented the latest chapter of her Fenty x Puma fashion story to the world.
Supported by a diverse group of models, the star flaunted her latest set of designs as part of the Paris Fashion Week Womenswear Fall/Winter 2017/2018.

Say what folk will about Rihanna, there’s no denying that Ms. Fenty sure knows how to take a picture.
Case in point her stunning new shoot for Paper Magazine‘s March 2017 issue.
The 29-year-old embraces her inner rebel in the captivating feature spread, which was lensed by Sebastian Faena.
If history is anything to go by, the debut of a bold new look often precedes a new era. We’re hearing things (a lot of things) re new RiRi; but after ‘ANTI’ gate, sometimes it’s better to just wait until it arrives

’24k Magic’ maestro Bruno Mars continue to sprinkle his magic on the Hot 100 thanks to the latest single from the set, ‘That’s What I Like.’
The R&B banger, which recently got the visual treatment, got its biggest sales and streaming boost from a high octane performance from this year’s Grammy Awards two weeks ago. Zooming to #4 as a result, the move – coming as Mars’ 13th run in the chart’s top 5 – has given him the distinct honor of having the “most top 5 singles this decade among males.” With ‘That’s What I Like’s ascension, he is tied with pop megastar Rihanna for the overall count (starting 2010).
As we await news on next week’s charts to see the impact the song’s recently released visual had on its sales and streaming – and to see if Rih’s ‘Love on the Brain’ will break their tie – tuck in below to see who joins them in this week’s refreshed “Chart Check: Billboard Hot 100”:
When she isn’t dominating many a playlist with her infectious brand of Urban Pop, Rihanna can be found changing the world via her humanitarian efforts.
So, in honour of her contributions to society, she received Harvard’s 2017 Humanitarian of the Year award.
I’m incredibly humbled by this. To be acknowledged at this magnitude, for something that, in truth, I’ve never wanted credit for.
Future has officially unleashed ‘HNDRXX’ – his second album in a week and his sixth overall.
Billed as being more rhythmic/radio leaning than last Friday’s self-titled set, the LP features guest appearances from The Weeknd and Rihanna. The latter teams up with the rapper for the song ‘Selfish.’
It’s neither of the hitmaker’s first outing with Future, however, as Rih called upon his rap stylings for 2012’s ‘Loveeeeeee Song’ [‘Unapologetic’] album and the Weeknd can be found on the rapper’s hit ‘Low Life.’
With Ms. Fenty and Mr. Tesfaye returning the favors again, how do their latest swings of the bat sound?
