In The Music Issue of i-D we turn up the volume on the pop stars, rock stars and DJs rocking our worlds, and meet the fashion designers for whom music inspires everything they do. She last released an album in 2012, but Rihanna's finally back and on the cover of one of your favourite magazines.
To celebrate her eighth studio album, R8, we meet Robyn Rihanna Fenty, the reigning queen of pop. While details of Ri's new album still remain under wraps, rumours of collaborations with Mike WiLL Made-It, Ne-Yo, DJ Mustard, Kiesza, Sam Smith and Rae Sremmurd have set anticipation at an all time high. Team this with last month's stealth pre-release of FourFiveSeconds, an unexpected acoustic jam with Kanye West and Paul McCartney, and it's fair to say suspense is skyrocketing.
