Rihanna immediately shared her excitement and gratitude on social media, and opted to express herself not only with some humble thanks, but a perfect clip for the occasion.2018 has gotten off to a successful start for Rihanna, who’s reportedly expanding her Fenty fashion empire with a lingerie line and gearing up for the spring drop of her latest range for her Fenty x Puma collaboration.
On the charts, she’s keeping up the year’s winning momentum: “Lemon,” her collaboration with N.E.R.D., clinched her fiftieth hit to grace the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100 on the chart dated Jan. 24, and “Consideration” earned her the distinction of being the first artist to have eight singles from the same album, 2016’s ANTI, top the Dance Club Songs chart on Feb. 24.
