Report: Rihanna Scores $25 Million From Amazon For Unfiltered Documentary

Published: Thursday 12th Dec 2019 by Sam

As fans await news on Rihanna‘s hotly anticipated ninth studio album, another interesting development has taken place. One which looks set to net the singer a hefty payday from Amazon. 

Full story below…

Citing sources close to the deal, THR has revealed that Rih is believed to have inked a lucrative partnership with Amazon which will bring a raw, unfiltered documentary about her life to their Prime streaming service.

Directed by Peter Berg, the as yet untitled doc has been in the production for years and centers on Rih’s evolution.

Boasting unparalleled access into the star’s life and more than 1,200 hours of footage – zoning in on her personality, humor, work ethic, family love, and more.

It extends Rih’s relationship with the media giant, after they broadcast her widely praised ‘Savage X Fenty’ show.

Amazon are said to have been part of a fierce bidding war, which saw streaming services making the highest offers. They are reported as paying a whopping $25 million for the exclusive rights.

Briefly speaking on the doc during its development, Berg shared:

“… to go travel with Rihanna around Europe, and Rihanna is surrounded by girls. We were in Nice [France]. She was going to do a concert on Bastille Day. And that truck driver who killed all those people plowed through them right in front of our hotel. So even in me trying to do something light, I had a very, very front row seat to something that horrific.”

Suffice to say, it looks like it’ll be delving into the bright and darker sides of Rih’s day-to-day.

Here’s hoping the doc is paired with the arrival of new music, as the synergy would be a wise move to amplify buzz for both.

Because, as the likes of Beyonce‘s ‘Homecoming’ on Netflix proved, when done properly the results can be amply beneficial.

    Get them coins Rihanna. Im looking forward to her new album / tour

  4. Meme December 12, 2019

    The difference between Rihanna and Bey is Rihanna’s music is actually highly anticipated. She does extras in support of her music whereas beyonce needs all the extras to generate excitement to sell her music because no one is checking for her music.

    So that little homecoming comment at the end was unnecessary.

    • FOH December 12, 2019

      But who cares? that wasnt the topic of discussion… the fact that you even felt the need to discuss Beyonce in the first place just proves that the Queen is still in demand so your point is invalid !

      • Fanciest BISH December 12, 2019

        Right she mad!

    • Normani. December 12, 2019

      • You Tried December 12, 2019

        Gworl you quoting numbers from the summer lmao you’re a flop you have that s*** bookmarked on your phone and a poster of Bey on your wall henny

  5. Fanciest BISH December 12, 2019

    QUEENING, she should release the album before its too late…

    • only facts December 12, 2019

      Fanciest, respectfully, it will never be too late for Ms. Fenty. She’s an icon and didn’t disappear like some other artists do when they go on hiatus. She’s stayed on the tip of everyone’s tongue for years without being overexposed. I guarantee, the second she drops her single, it will debut at #1 on the hot 100.

      You know I live for you, so please don’t take this as I’m being rude 🙂

      • Fanciest BISH December 12, 2019

        lol you actually are right to some degree…. I just remember 2015 with the 3 singles and soundtrack that went no where on the charts.. but if she comes out with a banger I could see her nabbing that 15th #1.

        Especially now that streaming is bigger than before, I pray for an early Q1 2020 release… and the anticipation is higher than before..

        PS, I stan you and always clocking that imbecile….

      • Datredd23 December 13, 2019

        2015 and those singles excluding American oxygen are all multi platinum Four Five Seconds was a massive hit and still her most streamed or top 5 streamed songs currently reaching a peak of 4 on the hot 100! She never flopped babe ! She received her Grammy moment with Paul McCartney and Kanye performance not many have that !

  6. Suxmycockiness 😮 December 12, 2019

    Man she stay getting Bags!💰I’m just gonna start calling her RICHanna 😁

  7. only facts December 12, 2019

    Someone go check on Clarkson. That loser has been eerily quiet.

    • You Tried December 12, 2019

      Why bring him/her up? I was hoping everyone would ignore them whilst they lose their mind at no responses in regard to Camila lmao

  8. Tyty December 12, 2019

    Since she broke up with the Arab I guess she has decided to be a celebrity/singer again not just a fashion designer. New album is coming

    • Kix December 13, 2019

      They were photographed together just yesterday so they are not broken up. She can have a personal life and career too.

  9. Okay? December 14, 2019

    👏👏👏👏😘😘😘😘
