Report: Rihanna Eyeing Move To Sony

Published: Monday 16th Sep 2019 by Sam

Rihanna once stood as the unapologetic dispenser of an album a year. These days, though, she’s apologising for not dropping a project in three calendar years.

Recent times have seen RiRi establish herself as a trail-blazing entrepreneur, with successful ventures such as Fenty Beauty, Savage Fenty, and the Fenty luxury line in partnership with LVMH.

Still, music is on the mind. And it appears some major movement behind the scenes may explain the hold up.

Details below…

According to Variety, the Bajan belle is believed to be on the cusp of a move to Sony/ATV Music Publishing. 

Home to Beyonce and Jay-Z, the imprint is headed up by Jon Platt – who has been instrumental to all of their careers on the publishing front.

Interestingly, Rih moved to her current publishing home (Warner Chappell) prior to ‘ANTI’s release to join Platt when he served as chairman.

A switch to Sony ATV would reunite the powerful pair, and no doubt function as a huge coup for the publishing house – who’s music rights include releases from the Beatles and Taylor Swift.

The news comes as anticipation grows for Rih’s new material, which sources say may manifest in the form of two projects – a Pop centered set and a Reggae/Dancehall fusion celebrating the star’s Caribbean roots.

For what it’s worth, Platt and a number of Sony/ATV high-ups were in attendance at Ms. Fenty’s Diamond Ball gala last week.

    Future Billionaire !

    Passing the music torch to upcoming Normani with the stamp of approval.

    Camicky Cabelly thought she was Beyonce releasing two singles with high budget videos at once. Both flopped miserably

    Label may not even release the album.


    • Clarkson September 16, 2019

      At least Camila has 2 number 1’s, something normani will never have. Lol
      Havana 1.3 billion streams.

      Camila richer than normani, ????

      Camila net worth – 12 million
      Normani net worth- 3 million

      Camila can buy normani 4 times over. Lol

      • Nicky September 16, 2019

        I thought Camicky was a Star

        These singles won’t outpeak Motivation


        Normani two Smash Hits.
        A top 40 hit that performed better than a Crying in club
        Star is Rising everyday

        Camicky has 30 million followers and none streamed or bought the singles ????

        Embarrassing ??

      • Clarkson September 16, 2019

        Gurl nobody cares about debut, everybody cares about peak position

        Lizzo truth hurts debut at the bottom of the charts but the song is number 1 today, same thing with Havana. Havana debuted at number 92 but it peaked at number 1.

        After all the hype normani got she couldn’t hit the top 20. Shameful. Motivation is at the bottom of the charts.

      • Jasmine The Real Princess September 16, 2019

        At least Normani has a body and doesn’t look like a 12 yr old ?

    • J September 16, 2019

      Are y’all really about to start doing this on every post? Is that even a real beef? Lol

      • I Told You September 16, 2019

        Clarkston is slow.

  2. Nicky September 16, 2019

    US ITunes top 100

    Liar #78
    Shameless #108

    Congrats Camicky Cabelly on your two flops!!!


    • Clarkson September 16, 2019

      Ur faves normani was on dancing with the stars while my faves was opening the Grammys.

      Normani didn’t even win dancing with the stars, she placed 3rd. Lol I thought u guys said she was a good dancer. Lol

      • Nicky September 16, 2019

        Beyonce, Kelly Clarkson, Rihanna, Halsey, Kehlani, Nicki minaj , Cardi B, etc gave the stamp to Normani.

        She has won.

        Who likes Camicky? Apparently no one looking at the flop singles. After Normani came on the scene, No one is interested in Camicky


      • Clarkson September 16, 2019

        Madonna, Ricky Martin, Taylor swift love camilla. Madonna posted Camila on her Instagram. That is seal of approval from queen of pop herself

        Camila richer than normani, girl sit down.

        Now I understand why normani was on dancing with the stars, ur faves is broke, needed the money.

        Now I understand why it faves attend every event , cause she need the coins. Camila has 12 million in the bank, 2 number 1’s that can feed her for the rest of her life.

        Camila has 11 million YouTube subscribers
        Normani has 800k YouTube subscribers, lol even drag queens and makeup influencers have more followers than normani on YouTube.

      • Only Facts September 16, 2019

        38 million followers on Instagram and Camilla is #78 and #108 on iTunes after 1.5 weeks? LOL! GIRL! Stop acting like this isn’t the sign of a flop. How long until EPIC drops a remix with a feature (because she only gets hits with features – Never Be The Same had a remix to hit the top 10). Or will EPIC just market these as “buzz” singles?! LOL! The flop is real.

      • Nicky September 16, 2019

        @Only Facts

        ????? Clarksdaughter is having a melt down. Now it’s saying that Havana can feed her forever. Signs of defeat


        Normani is just getting started. It’s a marathon not a sprint. And Camicky steam has burned out . Her services are no longer needed.


      • Clarkson September 16, 2019

        @only facts

        LOOL. The delusion jumped out

        Everybody drop remixes to their songs so it can chart higher

        Lil mas x has done it twice. Old town road and now panini both have remixes

        Lizzo truth hurts has a remix feat Danny

        Billie ellish bad guy hit number 1 on the chart and it has a remix feat justin bieber

        Camila is gonna debut strong this week. No hype no free promo from 40 different celebrities, no big performance at the vmas.
        Honey it’s not a race it’s a marathon. Lol

        Where is normani on the charts after all the hype and shout outs she got from everybody on Twitter and Instagram? She also performed her flop at the vma’s.

    • Sweetnothings78 September 16, 2019

      Out of interest how old are you lot? You sound like 12 year olds who would die for one direction back in the day. It’s really weird behaviour.

      • Clarkson Is A Loser September 16, 2019

        I was just thinkin the same thing!!
        Clarkson is a loser keyboard warrior…
        No friend no life…
        Just jump from a building or something…
        Its fun in the beginning but when open almost every single post and seing This loser comment its just pathetic…

        Camila didnt get free promo like i said cuz none of the celebs were impressed thats why…

      • I Told You September 16, 2019

        Clarkston is slow.

    • Oh na na September 21, 2019

      They can stamp all they want. She better come out with a bonafide hit. Times ticking. Public moves on very quick. She doesn’t have the looks. Rihanna praises unattractive and fat female artists. She only praised J lo because she couldn’t compete and admitted defeat.

  3. Datredd23 September 16, 2019

    Can’t believe she will be a billionaire soon! She might already be one she’s so private about her finances but her business are booming. Fenty Beauty is now valued over 5 billion! Wow Rihanna the most successful female musician of all time !

    • Clarkson September 16, 2019

      How many percent does she own in fenty beauty? According to what I read she own little of the company

      • Datredd23 September 16, 2019

        She owns 50 percent of Fenty Beauty and 55 percent of her Clothing house Fenty with LVMH. Also she owns 80 percent of Her lingerie line which just got 100 million in recent investments alone please stop y’all know she will be a multi billionaire even if she own 1 percent of those companies

    • D September 16, 2019

      U know rihanna doesn’t fully own fenty right?

    • I Told You September 16, 2019

      she’s a very successful entrepreneur, yes indeed. To say the most successful musician, no.

      • Datredd23 September 16, 2019

        Without musicianship she would not be an entrepreneur honey both tie in

  4. Tyty September 16, 2019

    I don’t consider Rihanna a musician anymore but okay….

    • D September 16, 2019

      She never was one but ok….

      • Tyty September 16, 2019

        Irrelevant opinion I didn’t ask for….
