MI INFORMA | Rihanna se convierte en la artista femenina más rica del mundo, reporta la prestigiosa Forbes
Tyrant Thee Stallion posted a topic in Música InternacionalHow Rihanna Created A $600 Million Fortune—And Became The World’s Richest Female Musician Famous first as a singer, Robyn Rihanna Fenty, age 31, has since evolved into a style icon and makeup entrepreneur—and soon she’ll be the first black woman in charge of a major luxury fashion house. All those efforts add up to a $600 million fortune, making her the wealthiest female musician in the world, ahead of the likes of Madonna ($570 million), Céline Dion ($450 million) and Beyoncé ($400 million). Most of that comes not from music but from her partnership with LVMH, the French luxury goods giant run by billionaire Bernard Arnault. Rihanna (pronounced Ri-Ann-ah, not Ri-Ah-nah as she recently clarified) and LVMH co-own the makeup brand Fenty Beauty. It launched in September 2017 at Sephora, another LVMH brand, and online at FentyBeauty.com, quickly becoming a viral success. Fenty Beauty racked up a reported $100 million in sales in its first few weeks, propelled by Rihanna’s fame and 71 million Instagram followers. The entire personal care industry in America has grown huge in recent years. According to Grand View Research, it could swell to more than $200 billion in sales by 2025, up from closer to $130 billion in 2016. The market saw a record 134 M&A deals last year, including P&G's $250 million purchase of 10-year-old First Aid Beauty. Perhaps the most telling data point: 11 of the 80 women on Forbes' list of the Richest Self-Made Women made their money in beauty or skincare products. Many did what Rihanna did, turn to the low-cost marketing opportunity presented by social media. That works best for existing celebrities, as Kylie Jenner and her Kylie Cosmetics proved out, who can push their new products at their existing followers. Fenty Beauty has differentiated itself in another way, releasing 40 shades of foundation, far more than the handful of hues sold by other brands. “It challenged the standard convention that you only needed a very defined set of shades to satisfy a market,” says Stephanie Wissink, a research analyst at Jefferies. “Not only did [Fenty Beauty] achieve meaningful sales, but it potentially changed the industry permanently.” Sales continue to soar. Fenty Beauty generated an estimated $570 million in revenue last year, after only 15 months in business. The entire operation is worth, conservatively, more than $3 billion. The Barbados native, who overcame hardships including an abusive addict father and a well-publicized assault by then-boyfriend Chris Brown in 2009, also co-owns the Savage X Fenty lingerie line with Los Angeles-based online fashion firm TechStyle Fashion Group and has millions in earnings from her career touring and releasing as a singer, which make up the rest of her fortune. Her empire continues to grow. In May, LVMH and Rihanna announced Fenty, a new clothing house that will make high-end clothes, shoes, accessories and jewelry. “They extended the offer to me and it was a no-brainer because LVMH is a machine,” Rihanna told The New York Times Style Magazine. “Bernard Arnault was so enthusiastic; he trusted me and my vision.” The fashion line, which launched online in May, includes sizes up to U.S. 14, embodying the same inclusive ideal of Fenty Beauty. It will exist under the same umbrella as famous brands such as Dior and Givenchy, marking LVMH’s first new house in more than 30 years. “What Fenty Beauty did to beauty, Fenty lifestyle is going to do to fashion,” says Wissink. “It’s going to raise the bar for what it looks like to build a brand that’s inclusive, game changing, global and iconic.” FUENTE
MI TÍA YOLI | A 1134 días del último lanzamiento musical de Rihanna, ¿en qué mes crees que tendremos el comeback de la Reina Negra?
Tyrant Thee Stallion posted a topic in Música InternacionalVeamos quiénes son los pitonisos de MI y digan en qué mes creen que la reina del maquillaje, las tangas, los autos, la carpintería y por supuesto del POP lanzará el anticipado lead single de su próximo álbum.
La carrera por los 100 millones empezó Vender un millón de álbumes es algo a destacar, no importa si hablamos de ventas puras o convertidas desde otros formatos. Requiere mucho éxito llegar a ello. Escalar hasta 10 millones es más difícil todavía, mientras llegar a 100 millones ya es un logro legendario. ¿Último artista en lograrlo? Britney Spears, que debutó en 1998. Gracias a las fuertes ventas de la década pasada, varios artistas de los 2000s están en camino a alcanzar esa cifra. Rihanna, Coldplay, Adele, Taylor Swift, Beyoncé, todos ellos son candidatos a alcanzar los 9 dígitos. Pero, ¿quién lo hará primero? Y además, ¿pueden artistas más jóvenes como Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber y Drake superar a todos los anteriores? Hasta ahora, hemos estudiado a 37 artistas que pueden declarar más de 100 millones en EAS (Equivalent Album Sales). El total de Rihanna está en 93 millones a la fecha. La cosa es que, esta cifra ha sido alcanzada con 0 lanzamientos nuevos. No lanzó absolutamente nada durante 2018, pero aún así ganó un increíble 440.000 EAS por mes. A este paso, estará en los 100 millones para junio de 2020. Su último álbum, ANTI, acaba de cumplir 3 años desde su lanzamiento, así que podemos esperar nueva música del ícono Barbadense pronto, sobretodo porque ella misma ya confirmó que su noveno álbum de estudio saldrá este 2019. ANTI está en un admirable 6.3m EAS a la fecha, lo que muestra que Rihanna tiene bastante potencial con su nueva música, no sólo con su catálogo antiguo. Por supuesto, siempre se habla de cómo se deben tratar los featurings una vez que hablamos de Rihanna. El hecho es que, sus ventas no son altas gracias a colaboraciones, si no que es constantemente invitada a otras canciones porque vende números grandes. Meterla en una canción ha sido el camino más corto al éxito que puedes encontrar desde hace 13 años. Con la misma cuenta acumulada que Coldplay y ventas similares de su catálogo, nuestra apuesta es que Rihanna se convertirá en la primera artista de los 00s en lograr los 100m EAS con su próximo disco. Es bastante probable incluso que lo haga antes de que este año termine.

A la fecha ha vendido cerca de 5 millones de copias sólo en EEUU y ostenta certificación de 6x Platino. Aclamada por la crítica desde su lanzamiento, la canción es una de las más icónicas de Rihanna y fue presentada en los VMA del 2008 con una recordada performance. La particular estética del video sirvió como antesala para "Rated R" y comenzó a popularizar el estilo extravagante que se vió en posteriores trabajos de otras divas pop.
MI NOTICIAS | Peter Berg sorprende con anuncio de documental sobre RIHANNA: se estrenaría dentro de 2 meses y llevan 3 años filmándolo.
Tyrant Thee Stallion posted a topic in Música InternacionalIn 2016, director Peter Berg announced an exciting new documentary he's working on about Rihanna. However, not much more information was given -- until now. Berg talked to SlashFilm about his Mark Wahlberg movie Mile 22, and during the conversation he mentioned that the RiRi doc is almost here. "It really is kind of a pretty comprehensive profile of what goes in to making her this talent that she is," he said, before noting "the movie will be out in about a month and half, two months we’ll be able to start showing it." The director and the songstress have worked together in the past, as she appeared in his 2012 movie Battleship. Way back in 2016, director Peter Berg announced his plans to film a documentary on Rihanna, described as "more a character study than a music film.” Since then, further details concerning the project have been scant. But in a newly published interview Berg confirmed that Rihanna is well on its way.
Inside Rihanna’s Upcoming Dancehall Album Jamaican producers and songwriters have submitted “500 records” for new album that’s been more than a year in the making RESUMEN EN EL PRIMER POST PARA LOS QUE NO QUIERAN LEER TANTO For more than a year, Rihanna and her label Roc Nation have been hunting for beats as they work to complete an album devoted to exploring the singer’s Caribbean roots, according to conversations with eight sources close to the project. In addition, two of those sources suggest that the singer is simultaneously at work on another pop-oriented album. Rihanna first mentioned the possibility of releasing a reggae-centric album publicly during a Vogueprofile in May, but her and her potential collaborators have been quiet ever since. The magazine suggested that Supa Dups, the veteran dancehall producer behind recent hits like Drake’s “Controlla,” was “one influence” on the album, though other details were scarce. (While Supa Dups did not respond to email requests for comment, two other sources with knowledge of Rihanna’s album confirmed the producer’s involvement.) Along with Supa Dups, most of the biggest producers and singers connected to dancehall and reggae have submitted material for the album, including producer-writer duo R. City (Rihanna, Beyoncé), Stephen “Di Genius” McGregor (Vybz Kartel, Sean Paul), Linton “TJ Records” White (Serani, Vybz Kartel), producer-singer Ricky Blaze (Gyptian), Tyshane “Beam” Thompson (Yo Gotti, Lecrae), dancehall singer Kranium and reggae singer Chronixx. (The manager of Kranium and Chronixx declined to comment on his artists’ involvement.) According to one producer with knowledge of the album’s process, the mainstream Top 40 machine has been represented at some Rihanna sessions by superstar electronic producer Skrillex and Boi-1da (Drake, Beyoncé and Jay-Z). “[Rihanna’s team] have, no lie, 500 records for this project [from] different producers and writers,” says one dancehall producer A dancehall- and reggae-inflected album is not entirely out of left field for Rihanna. She has explored these sounds on 2010’s “Man Down” and 2011’s “You Da One,” while 2016’s Anti was boosted by the smash dancehall single “Work.” PARTYNEXTDOOR, a singer-songwriter of Jamaican descent who co-wrote “Work,” told Rolling Stone in 2016 that the song was not initially supposed to channel dancehall. “It was supposed to be a pop beat,” he said. “It turned into a reggae beat because I sang in patois.” But because Rihanna is from Barbados, “culturally, she got it right away,” he added. If “Work” was a happy accident, this time around, Rihanna and her team are consciously trying to create a dancehall-influenced album. The singer has already corralled a large number of demos from top-tier Jamaican talent, often enlisting producers that have a track record of creating songs that can penetrate the American market – Blaze, for example, produced Gyptian’s 2010 hit “Hold Yuh,”while White crafted Vybz Kartel’s “Fever,” which enjoyed a crossover trajectory last summer. It’s common for stars at Rihanna’s level to cull the best demos from reams of submissions when selecting songs for albums. “[Rihanna’s team] have, no lie, 500 records for this project [from] different producers and writers,” explains one dancehall producer who asked to remain anonymous. “They’re only choosing 10 records. They’ve been having writing camps and trying to keep them quiet for almost a year and a half now. I’ve been flying to Miami, flying to L.A., cutting records nonstop for this project.” “If the reggae artists and producers won’t get the chance on the pop album, at least let us survive on the dancehall album,” says a second producer “Every artist, every producer, every songwriter in Jamaica or of Jamaican descent has been working on [Rihanna’s album] and has little snippets of publishing or production credits on it,” another source close to the project says. “I think they’ve got eight songs,” he continues, “but her A&R is still asking for records.” “They’re looking for one more [song],” adds a third source with knowledge of the album-making process. Through a rep, Rihanna declined to comment on the new album. If Rihanna’s team likes a submission, they will do “some tweaking,” according to a second producer. “I didn’t even get the final [version of the song I turned in],” the producer adds. “I got the semi-final, and then I got the contracts. They ask my opinions, but you wouldn’t expect Rihanna to work with people that don’t do good work – they did some good work on it.” But another producer who submitted material for the album worries the star is diluting the Caribbean aspects of the music. “Their whole thing was, ‘Yo, we’re gonna make this [album] real dancehall, [real] Caribbean,'” says the producer. “Rihanna is Bajan, so let’s make this a full project like that. To me, it hasn’t been going that way. They’re kind of mixing it up, putting in the pop. If the reggae artists and producers won’t get the chance on the pop album, at least let us survive on the dancehall album. They’re changing up the direction continuously.“ But most of the singers and producers who have submitted material to Rihanna’s team believe that Jamaican music and Jamaican artists will benefit from being involved with such a high-profile release. “If the Rihanna album sells great numbers, faith will be restored in the [dancehall] genre as something to be invested in,” the second dancehall producer says. A third producer who has “done quite a lot of stuff” for the album says labels have started reaching out to him “asking if I had any songs that [Rihanna] didn’t take.” “People are already gearing up to go in that direction [towards dancehall] because somebody as big as her is doing that,” he adds. “If an artist like Rihanna comes out and does [an album influenced by Jamaican pop], that’s definitely going to shift the needle.”
