Rihanna Unveils New Puma Promo / #R8 Album Still M.I.A

Published: Thursday 27th Aug 2015 by Sam

It’s been a roller-coaster year for Rihanna.

Musically, the model has struggled to gain traction with any of her new music. However, her brand has continued to boom.

Case in point, her new “creative director” role at Puma.

As reported, the 27-year-old has been tapped to design and campaign a new lifestyle line for the sportswear giant – following in the footsteps of rivals Rita Ora (Adidas) and Beyonce (Topshop).

Set to impact retail next month, a new promotional snap has been released showing the star doing what she does best – posing.

For the sake of her fans, though, her new album will need to be posing on shop-shelves sooner rather than later. Something we hear may be happening very, very soon.


For now, though, check out one of Rih’s more recent hits…

    Beyoncé’s album will be out before #R8. Annalise’s ménstrual cycle will be over before #R8’s release. Annalise’s welfare check will be dispersed before #R8. And last but definitely least, Molly’s backbones will spontaneously come to life before #R8’s release.

      I’ve been waiting for your no wall, attention seeking, no life having self to show up, surprise, surprise here you are rolling around in the comment section once more. Try spilling that fake tea claiming that I’m Annalise? No b****, I’ll drag you quicker than the doctor did out ofyour mothers birth canal, you’ll wish I was Annalise.

      • Beyoncé Giselle-Knowles Carter (Formerly RihNavy) August 27, 2015

        Ok Annalise, clearly you’ve been watching and that’s why you just came out of hiding. How’s your media job in London going sis? I’m sorry your flop blog? OOPS sorry, you’re the same person, so I guess I meant how both are going.

      • DEL BEY August 27, 2015

        How many times does this low life h** have to be dragged by its nappy wig hairs before it exits this site. Rihnavy you’re an unclaimed gorilla, sis.

      • Beyoncé Giselle-Knowles Carter (Formerly RihNavy) August 27, 2015

        Great, Annalise

    • Beyonce’s Barren womb August 27, 2015

      kii you better drag sis

  2. Rihyeezy August 27, 2015

    Rihanna and the TRUE navy are unbothered.

    • Beyoncé Giselle-Knowles Carter (Formerly RihNavy) August 27, 2015

      You shady bish, don’t try it.

    • Taquisha jackson August 27, 2015

      Now that her singing career has faded away. Her modeling career is picking up. A girl has to pay her rent somehow

  3. Beyoncé August 27, 2015

    Why do fools like mark 111 like saying rihanna is more successful than Beyoncé ? rihanna has sold more singles and that’s because she has 8 albums nd more generic singles. best selling rihanna songs are very generic. Beyoncé has sold more albums and don’t come here telling me that rihanna has sold more records. that’s trash! !you can’t equate $1.29 single to $10 album. so beyonce has sold more period!! nd the only iconic number one riri has is umbrella, All Beyoncé number one are iconic except check on it.

    • blue August 27, 2015

      their album sales are not that far apart and rihanna has sold more than bey albumwise if you dont include the usa. Then you add her single sales and bey doesnt even come close

      • Beyoncé August 27, 2015

        Beyoncé has 5 albums while rihanna has 8 but Beyoncé still sold more.. so datz a boss. Minus 3 albums sales from rihanna and compare the result to Beyoncé total album sales. You will see how far apart they will be.

    • Rihyeezy August 27, 2015

      This is not about Beyoncé though

    • RihAmerican (hives scared of R8) August 27, 2015

      Girl stfu I don’t see no Diamond albums so how is she a boss? Her album sales are average like Rihanna’s

      • Tyler Makivelli August 27, 2015

        Beyonces sold more with LESS. So no, her album sales are as basic as Rihannas #FACTS.COM

  4. Huh August 27, 2015

    R8 is the new Detox.

    • Tyler Makivelli August 27, 2015

      Dr. Dre recently just said that Detox was scrapped. So yeah, youre right lmao

  5. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy August 27, 2015

    It’s funny that #R8 gets more news coverage over albums that are actually out

  6. coolness August 27, 2015

    When she is ready she’ll drop the album. I believe she and her team saw the somewhat lukewarm response the singles released received so she went back to drawing board. No big deal, tbh. I knew she’ll revert back to her typical November release.

  7. ratedxxx August 27, 2015

    if you going to talk shid..at least keep it real…..rihanna has more classic music than beyondfake….

    beyondfake might have sold more albums…but her music is garbage comparing to rihnna’s music….

    nobody beside her satanic stans are going to remember her singing about her husband’s camel juice in 5 years…

    rihanna has some generic songs too..but compare to beyondfake..meh..I would support the generic vs garbage

  8. ratedxxx August 27, 2015

    I am happy she’s going back to the drawing board..because bish better have my money, was not IT…

    I liked four five seconds though…I thought that’s the route they were going with that album..

    then, BAM..i heard bish better have my money..I was disappointed

  9. bonbon August 27, 2015

    Shes a photogenic lady who CANT SING. She has no vocal ability and the record buying public has caught on to her bulls_it.

    She’s basically a h** with the world watching. The way she shades her fans when they ask for a picture or touch her is unacceptable.

    Nappy headed trick. Can’t stand her.

    • blue August 27, 2015

      whose opinion do we take serious, yours? A nobody hiding behind their monitor, or a room full of music’s best and brightest giving rihanna a standing ovation after her performance?

  10. DEL BEY August 27, 2015

    Why is IT still commenting on this site like anyone gives a f*** what it has to say, nobody claims you h** BYE

    • Beyoncé Giselle-Knowles Carter (Formerly RihNavy) August 27, 2015

      Why are you talking to yourself Annalise? Aren’t you at work right now?

      • DEL BEY August 27, 2015

        B**** get yourself a life

    • Beyoncé Giselle-Knowles Carter (Formerly RihNavy) August 27, 2015

      Ok Annalise

  11. Oscar August 27, 2015

    unless she releases a number one single before the album I don’t see it selling that well, especially considering the sales climate

  12. african music lover August 27, 2015

    “””For the sake of her fans, though,

    posing on shop-shelves sooner
    rather than later.””””
    BWAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAH….. Sam you are one hell of a shady bit©h…..
    The nazi better keep waiting, there is no way that album is coming out before she scores a number 1 or number 2 hit,she knows she could flop harder than Kerry kwen attempts at dragging if she dared release that flop!

  13. Molly August 27, 2015

    I feel like she has lost all her appeal.

    • Kingbeybitch August 27, 2015

      I won’t say all but she has lost some of it

      • Molly August 27, 2015

        Her music has been awful and her fashion has gone downhill.. She really needs another LOUD era or I feel she’ll decline harder then Gaga.

      • Tyler Makivelli August 27, 2015

        Yeah, shes declined commercially since LOUD

      • Tyler Makivelli August 27, 2015

        Who still rocks Puma? Besides Meek Mill…..

  14. Kingbeybitch August 27, 2015

    Stop acting like y’all don’t know this album got scrapped… Im looking for her to says that FFS, BBHMM and AO were promo singles

  15. GayFagLiyah August 27, 2015

    yawn what a flop..

  16. #Istand4urban August 27, 2015

    Rihanna, girl! You paying it sis and I’m slightly over it.

  17. Kingbeybitch August 27, 2015

    “It’s funny that #R8 gets more news coverage over albums that are actually out”


    Umm I’m sorry to break it to you boo but only TGJ is talking about this album cause Sam likes to throw shade. Other than that no one else is talking about R8

  18. bria August 27, 2015

    Oh the delusion and wishful thinking

    Rihanna is the biggest star in the world right now

  20. Tyler Makivelli August 27, 2015

    Rihanna has 7 albums not8 and she has sold more than Beyoncé and u can see that more than 50% of Beyoncé ‘s sales are from the U.S. and less than30% of Rihanna’s sales are from the U.S. making her the true global queen not a local star

    • Alex August 28, 2015

      Boy be quiet with those false numbers! Everyone knows Beyoncé has sold more albums and she had 2 less than Rihona! Rihanna is a singles artists. However, she’s been slacking in that department. Sir Paul couldn’t even help ffs out chart Drunk in love! Good day.
