Rihanna Unveils Limited-Edition Vinyl ‘Rih-Issue’ of All Eight of Her Albums

No Comments

Rihanna may not have any concrete updates on what’s to come of her untitled next album, but the singer-turned-mogul is keeping her fans occupied with a “Rih-issue” of her entire discography.

On Thursday (Nov. 4), Rihanna announced a special limited-edition release of all eight of her albums on vinyl, which will feature unique colorways and exclusive apparel and merchandise.

All the records — starting from Rih’s 2005 release, Music of the Sun, up to 2016’s Anti, her most recent release — will feature a one- or two-record box set specially curated by the singer, who has curated each record’s packaging. The sets range from $100 to $140 and are currently available for preorder, which is set to ship Thursday, Nov. 11, according to her official webstore.

To promote the Rih-issue, the 33-year-old took to Instagram and Twitter to post photos from a vinyl-themed photo shoot to her feeds, which features her seductively posing in a room with electric-blue shag carpeting in front of vinyl storage shelves with her albums scattered on the floor. “‘Today’s kids will never know what vinyl is,’ they said! #theRIHissue,” she captioned the post along with her shop link.

Rihanna also posted a technicolor one-minute visual of her vinyl albums transforming into various objects as some of her signature hits play. “The RIH ISSUE cop these limited edition color vinyl + exclusive merch sets before dey gon’ !!! Pre-order now,” she wrote.
