Rihanna is more than just a musician, she's a pop culture powerhouse. It's no secret she's harnessed this power to leverage exceptional deals for herself from landing the Contributing Creative Director position at sock giant Stance to signing with retail giant Puma as their Creative Director. Rihanna has now inked another lucrative deal for herself with electronics giant Samsung. You might remember back in 2013 when Jay Z signed a deal with the company and released his album Magna Carta exclusively on Samsung platforms. As an artist on Jay's Roc Nation label, the deal comes as no surprise for Rihanna who is gearing up for the release of her eighth studio album ANTI.
As part of the deal, Rihanna will receive a cool $25 million, according to The New York Post. Samsung will be the official sponsor of Rihanna's new album ANTI along with the album's tour. In return, Rihanna will "help promote its Galaxy line of products" and release all related video content through the company's Milk Music radio service. With the world fiending for Rihanna's new album, let's hope this deal was the last piece in securing a release date. Look for ANTI to drop (hopefully) soon.
