Rihanna the Barbadian beauty from the other side of the ocean is definitely living the "American Dream". She came to America as a teenager to pursue her career and she hasn't stopped dreaming since. Our favorite bad gal is set to release her eighth studio album "R8" soon. Its amazing to continue to see Rihanna's growth and how she continues to diversify her dreams whether its acting, fashion, or even an animated voice. Its true we do "sweat for a nickel and dime and turn it into an empire". Its a blessing to see your visions become a reality, to know your hard work is paying off , to look back and see how far you've come, and to know that your life has changed and your families life has changed for the better because you didn't give up on your dreams . Even though we're here where we can become whatever we want to be, we have to work extremely hard and yes we do face many obstacles but we stay strong and continue to go after our dream.
I remember walking into Kenny B's and the owner handed me Rihanna's demo CD. I played it non stop. I even had "if Its Lovin That You Want" on my answering machine on my pink Razor ( think about how long ago that was) Haha. Anyways I am highly anticipating her new album and to see what she does next in the "uRIHverse". So download "American Oxygen" on iTunes (Here)
I posted this on my IG a year ago. Its the cover from Rihanna's demo CD! Its just really inspiring to see her dreams come true and to see her continue to be herself "Rihanna".
