Despite her musical hiatus and focus on motherhood and business empires, Rihanna’s impact on the music world remains unrivaled. 

Since her last studio album, the chart-topping Anti released in 2016, fans have eagerly awaited her highly anticipated follow-up. 

However, the singer has made sporadic returns to the music scene, offering glimpses of her talent.
