Gearing closer to the much-anticipated upcoming album R8. The ‘Fresh Off The Runway’ singer serves the cover of I-D magazine fearlessly, with a strong face and vulnerable eyes. Rocking a dark Céline top, hair styled in shoulder length box braids Rih’s hair truly is the focus of the image and her edges are laid …YAS!

 

 

The inside shots serve us with even more baby hairs and Bantu knots! She embodies a 90’s edge with this shoot, its dark, its sexy and we love it! A topless Rihanna is sporting over-sized pale blue denim trousers.

 

The photography of images were shot by Paolo Roversi in Paris, see what he had to say:

 

“She really is one of the most creative, talented and inspiring women I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with,” says i-D’s Fashion Director Alastair McKimm “The energy and enthusiasm she brings is intense. She’s the ultimate icon of our time.”

Last weekend Rih dropped a single from her 8th album called “Four Five Seconds“. Her raw vocals are felt on the country infused track. Definitely a different sound than what were expecting. The track features vocals from Kanye West and guitar support from Sir Paul McCartney. The trio is reportedly expected to perform the single live at the 57th annual Grammy Awards – Sunday February 8th.

Details of the new album are still very hush-hush and we still don’t have a date for the album drop. However she is rumored to have worked with Mike WiLL Made It, Ne-Yo, DJ Mustard, Kiesza, Sam Smith and Rae Sremmurd.

 

With those name are you expecting an album full of bangerz?
