Rihanna signs million-dollar deal for 2 albums and tour
Pop sensation Rihanna, who recently welcomed two children within two years, is making a grand return to the music scene, planning a worldwide tour and the release of two new albums. Fans feared she might take an indefinite break from music due to her expanding family, but recent reports suggest otherwise.
The Mirror reported that Rihanna has inked a colossal deal with Live Nation for a tour scheduled for 2024 and 2025, estimated to be worth a staggering £32 million (approximately $58 million USD). Simultaneously, she is preparing to drop two albums featuring fresh material that will complement her tour. A close source revealed that her creative team is working tirelessly in Los Angeles to ensure everything aligns perfectly as she continues to nurture her family.
Rihanna, who announced her second pregnancy with ASAP Rocky during her Super Bowl performance in February, gave birth to her first child, son RZA, just 18 months prior. In August, she welcomed her second son, Riot Rose.
Responding to concerns about her absence from the music scene, Rihanna assured her fans that she has never stopped creating music, despite not releasing new material in seven years since her last album, Anti. In an interview with British Vogue, she expressed her desire to release new music this year, hinting at the tour and record deals that are now surfacing.
She explained her reluctance to release music, noting the pressure she placed on herself to surpass the success of “Anti.” However, she acknowledged that music should be an outlet for creativity and self-expression, not solely focused on commercial success.
