  2. How 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
  3. JH: Is “Good Girl Gone Bad” your favorite album? RF: No, because that was a transition. I don’t know what my favorite album is — I’m sure if I put all my favorite songs together, it would be a really sick album. Maybe I should do that one day. JH: You should troll your fans by doing that. Be like, “New album, y’all!” RF: They would hate me. They would take me down. JH: I’m not in the Navy,29 but I am Navy adjacent. So I have to ask some questions I saw floating around the message boards. RF: O.K. [Laughs.] JH: Is it true you are doing a reggae album? RF: Yeah. JH: You are? O.K., are you collaborating with Lady Gaga? RF: No. JH: Oh, they think you’re doing a collaboration with Lady Gaga. RF: Maybe because she followed me on Instagram. It’s not in the books right now, but I’m not against it. JH: Are you going to collaborate with Drake again?30 RF: Not anytime soon, I don’t see it happening. Not on this album, that’s for sure. JH: What is the album called? RF: Uh, I don’t know yet. JH: If you don’t know yet, then you probably don’t know when it’s coming out? RF: I don’t. JH: Do you have any names under consideration? RF: No, so far it’s just been R9,31 thanks to the Navy. I’m about to call it that probably, ’cause they have haunted me with this “R9, R9, when is R9 coming out?” How will I accept another name after that’s been burned into my skull? JH: It’s this gift to the fans who have been most hungry for it. RF: That would be cute. FUENTE
  4. Veamos 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.
  5. 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.

  7. Denise Rosenthal afirma que fue tratada como "símbolo sexual siendo una niña" Encadená se titula el nuevo single de Denise Rosenthal, cantante local que aprovechó su canción para recordar cómo fueron sus traumáticos inicios en televisión siendo una niña. En ese contexto, la cantante presentó el videoclip del tema, el cual en sus palabras, “desconstruye las estructuras de belleza a las que nos acostumbran las revistas y la publicidad”, en una trama que hace clara alusión a su exposición en medios de comunicación. “Es un trabajo súper importante, porque cuando escribí Encadená sentí que necesitaba plasmar o visibilizar lo que fue para mí haber crecido en la exposición y que se me haya otorgado el carácter de símbolo sexual de manera gratuita, siendo una niña”, agregó Rosenthal, en declaraciones que reproduce el protal dle diario Publimetro. Sobre el mismo tema, agregó: “Sentía que habían muchos prejuicios en torno a esto e incluso traté de neutralizarlo y cuidarme mucho en los aspectos físicos, estéticos y sensuales que se pudieran mal interpretar, en pos de mi trabajo, pero era limitante ya que sentía que no era yo por completo y me parecía muy injusto”.
  8. El discurso feminista de Janet Jackson en los MTV EMAs 2018 La cantante recibió el premio 'Global icon' en los MTV EMA y aprovechó para lanzar un importante y necesario mensaje. "Yo soy una de esas mujeres que han sido amordazadas, tanto literal como emocionalmente", dijo Jackson. La noche de los MTV EMAs 2018 fue de las mujeres: de Camila Cabello, gran ganadora al llevarse cuatro de los seis premios a los que optaba; de Rosalía, cuya actuación dejó a todos sin palabras y de Janet Jackson, que dio un aplaudido discurso feminista. La cantante estadounidense, con cuatro décadas sobre los escenarios, fue reconocida con el galardón de Icono Mundial, sucediendo a artistas como U2, Queen o Whitney Houston. "Acepto este premio con profunda gratitud por ser llamada un icono. Es un tremendo honor pero viene acompañado de una tremenda responsabilidad. Hoy siento que debo hablar por aquellas mujeres cuyas voces han sido silenciadas", comenzó. "Yo soy una de esas mujeres que han sido amordazadas, tanto literal como emocionalmente, mujeres de las que han abusado, mujeres que han sido intimidadas, mujeres que han vivido con miedo. Yo estoy con ustedes, ustedes son mis hermanas", continuó, despertando multitud de aplausos. "Esta noche tengo la esperanza de que un nuevo mundo está emergiendo, en el que personas bondadosas, tanto hombres como mujeres, no tolerarán más la desigualdad de género", exclamó. "Mujeres, nuestras voces serán escuchadas. Seremos escuchadas cuando alcemos la voz por la justicia, por un espíritu que atraviese todas las fronteras, reconozca la dignidad de todas las personas y afirme la belleza de todas las creencias", añadió antes de rematar con "Es el amor lo que sanará nuestras heridas".
  9. Earlier in the evening, Rihanna—who wore a dramatic white lace gown with a large bow placed on the front—told reporters assembled on the red carpet that what keeps her motivated and continually moving forward in all areas (music, fashion, her philanthropic work) is a certain restlessness: “I can’t sit still. I get bored. So I have to keep doing something.” She said right now she likes “a bit of everything,” in terms of music, and disclosed she is working on new material right now, don’t worry. What area might she delve into next, having conquered beauty and fashion in addition to music? “Should I tell you?,” she said with a laugh, covering her mouth. “Maybe furniture? But I need time for that.”
  10. Demi Lovato's mom opens up about the singer's overdose and not knowing for 'two days if she was going to make it or not' Demi Lovato’s mother is speaking out about the singer’s overdose for the first time. With Lovato’s permission, Dianna De La Garza talked with Newsmax TV and recounted the terrifying moment in July when she learned of her daughter’s overdose. She also revealed just how serious the life-or-death incident was, sharing that Lovato was in “critical condition” for two days. De La Garza is trying to bring awareness of the opioid epidemic sweeping America. “It’s still a really difficult thing to talk about. I literally start to shake a little bit when I start to remember what happened that day,” she began. “I was actually looking at my phone and all these texts started coming in.” De La Garza could see the first lines of the flood of messages saying things like, “‘I just heard the news, I’m so sorry, I’m praying for your family, I’m praying for Demi.’ I was in shock. I thought, what is going on? … My heart just dropped.” Soon, her phone rang. “I got a phone call from Demi’s assistant at the time, Kelsey. … I answered the phone and Kelsey was rambling like she had obviously been through something terrible, and she said, ‘I need to tell you what’s going on … you’re going to see a report come out.’ I stopped her and said, ‘Kelsey, just tell me what’s going on.’ The next words that came out of her mouth were words … that are so difficult to hear as a parent,” De La Garza recalled. “She said Demi overdosed. So I was in shock, I didn’t know what to say. It was something I never, ever expected to hear as a parent about any of my kids. … I said, ‘Is she OK?’ And she stopped for a second and she said, ‘She’s conscious, but she’s not talking.’ I knew at that point that we were in trouble.” De La Garza and her other daughters rushed to the hospital to which Lovato had been transported. “We ran into the emergency room to be by her side, and she just didn’t look good, at all,” she remembered. “She was in bad shape, but I said to her, ‘Demi, I’m here. I love you.’ At that point, she said back to me, ‘I love you too.’ From that point on, I never allowed myself to ever think that things weren’t going to be OK.” Lovato was in “critical condition” for a “couple of days.” “We just didn’t know for two days if she was going to make it or not,” De La Garza said. “I was very concerned, and I was trying to be strong for her and for her sisters and for my family back home. … I just feel like the reason she’s alive today is because of the millions of prayers that went up that day.” De La Garza also thanked the doctors at Cedars-Sinai: “I couldn’t have asked for a better team of people to save her life.” It’s the first we’ve heard just how dire the July 24 situation was. At the time, reports claimed that Lovato was hospitalized for an extended period of time due to “complications.” After 10 days, she was released from the hospital and immediately entered rehab. Lovato has been seeking treatment ever since. “I can honestly say today that she is doing really well,” De La Garza added. “She’s happy, she’s healthy, she’s working on her sobriety, and she’s getting the help she needs. That in itself encourages me about her future and the future of our family.” Lovato’s mother said she’s now become an “accidental spokeswoman” for the opioid crisis after going through this terrifying ordeal. “You don’t see it coming, and that’s the scary thing,” she explained. “The opioid crisis in America is at an epidemic level, and people don’t understand that until they start researching it. … After this happened, I started researching and looking into how opioids are killing our kids. … Every 15 minutes someone dies from an overdose.” She concluded, “I want to do whatever I can in this fight and fight with whoever will help me.” It hasn’t been confirmed what Lovato overdosed on, but a source maintained to Yahoo Entertainment that it wasn’t heroin, contrary to TMZ’s initial report. It’s believed to have been oxycodone laced with fentanyl. Before entering rehab, Lovato made a statement to her fans vowing to “keep fighting.”
  11. 'Fantasy' 20 Years Later: How One of Mariah Carey's Biggest Singles Became the Future of Pop Music A turning point in Carey’s career, the chart-topping song quickly became a trendsetter, giving birth to a new genre -- “hip-pop” -- as TLC’s Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes once put it. “My first thought was, ‘Who the hell allowed this to happen?’” former MTV news correspondent John Norris tells ET about the remix’s initial release. "It wasn't just a pop singer and a rapper," he adds. "It was the sweetest pop singer and as gritty of an East Coast rapper as we had at the time." While Columbia Records -- Carey’s label from 1988 to 1999 -- gave it the ultimate go-ahead, it was Carey who relentlessly pushed Tommy Mottola, the head of the label and her then-husband, for creative control. She was restless. And ready. “The record companies didn’t understand my collabs with hip-hop artists and producers, such as ‘Fantasy’ with ODB or ‘Heartbreaker’ with Jay Z,” Carey told Variety in August. “Now anyone would kill to have a record with Jay Z. I got a lot of flak for that.” “People who wanted her to be a Celine Dion-type artist had gripes about it," rapper Da Brat recalls to ET. A close friend and collaborator of Carey’s, the rapper would help with the singer’s urban transition. Regarding Carey’s fringe makeover, Brat says, “Tommy Mottola didn’t want that. He didn’t want her on that level. He didn't even want her associating with rappers like that. She fought for that, because Mariah’s got a little hood in her.” Carey’s fight was victorious, igniting a wave of collaborations in the dirty-pop vein of “Fantasy" and “Heartbreaker.” Jennifer Lopez teamed up with Ja Rule for two of her biggest singles, “I’m Real” and “Ain’t It Funny (Murder Remix).” Fergie, who first broke on the scene as the hook singer of The Black Eyed Peas, collaborated with Ludacris on her solo release. Christina Aguilera teamed up with Redman. And Ashanti found success with a number of rappers. By 2002, the format was so popular that the GRAMMYs introduced an award for the Best Rap/Sung Collaboration, which eventually went to Beyonce and Jay Z for “Crazy in Love.” “She set the trend," Brat says of Carey, whose influence is clearly seen in a number of today’s young artists -- even if today’s new generation of singers don’t realize the path they’re following. "All the new R&B and younger pop artists should worship the ground Mariah walks on because she paved the way in so many different ways by trying different things that the world didn't necessarily agree with,” she adds. “And that's what these new artists lack -- they lack appreciation, and they lack respect.”
  12. Hoy "Music Of The Sun" cumple 13 años de haber sido lanzado y es muy poco recordado. Fuertemente influenciado por los ritmos caribeños con los que Rihanna creció, fue un fracaso comercial a pesar del hit que fue "Pon De Replay", por lo que el sello planeó rápidamente el sucesor con una dirección más comercial, incluyendo r&b y pop. Aunque a este le fue mucho mejor, sigue siendo ignorado dentro de la discografía de Riri. ¿Los has escuchado? ¿Te gustan? ¿Consideras "Umbrella" el verdadero debut de Rihanna?
  13. BILLBOARD ICON AWARD: I believe for all our challenges, we live at a glorious moment history. It's a moment when, at long last, women have made it clear that we will no longer be controlled, manipulated or abused. I stand with those women and with those men equally outraged who support us in heart and mind. This is also a moment when our public discourse is loud and harsh." RADIO DISNEY IMPACT AWARD: BMI ICON AWARD: “As one of the most influential entertainers of all time, Janet Jackson’s artistry and music transcends generations and has inspired many with messages of empowerment that can be heard throughout her rich catalog of music,” said Brewton. “She is the definition of an icon, and I can’t think of anyone more deserving of this honor.” Jackson joins an elite group of recipients who have received BMI’s Icon Award for their “unique and indelible influence on generations of music makers.” Past recipients have included Patti LaBelle, Nile Rodgers, James Brown, Snoop Dogg and Al Green, among others. https://www.bmi.com/news/entry/janet-jackson-to-be-named-a-bmi-icon-at-the-2018-bmi-rb-hip-hop-awards BET's LACK GIRLS ROCK ICON
  14. https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/glee/images/f/f9/Disturbia_rihanna_smoke.gif/revision/latest?cb=20140417203108 Lanzada como el tercer single de "Good Girl Gone Bad: Reloaded", la canción debutó en el lugar #18 del Hot 100 y luego de un mes llegó a la cima donde permaneció 2 semanas. 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.
  15. In 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.
  16. 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.”

  18. Rihanna Reportedly Readying Two New Albums: One Radio-Friendly, The Other Experimental Rihanna's dual-album release is full steam ahead! A new report from Metro doubles down on singer-songwriter Elijah Blake's claims that Riri is working on two new records simultaneously. They claim one is chock-full of radio friendly bops – the other is a little more dangerous. "She’s currently recording two albums – one full of chart-friendly songs, and another made up of moody and experimental tracks – and is considering releasing a double disc if she feels the songs won’t mesh well on the same album, says a source. Singer-songwriter Elijah Blake, who helped craft "No Love Allowed" off 2012's Unapologetic, recently commented on a fan's Instagram post that dogged the pop star for focusing her attention on her ever-expanding beauty empire in lieu of releasing new music. That's because, according to Blake, she's got a lot more in the works than we anticipated. "Lol u do know she's in the studio working on 2 whole albums though right?" He posted a second comment with the word "allegedly" and a smirking emoji.
