You Can Now Own Rihanna's Entire Discography On Vinyl
“Today’s kids will never know what vinyl is, they said!” Rih wrote of the limited edition “Rih-issue.”
Rihanna may still be holding out on delivering new music, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy her old hits. The Fenty mogul is re-releasing each of her previous albums as limited-edition vinyl records, in a new collection called the Rih-Issue. The surprise drop includes exclusive merchandise as well, and all the items are currently available to pre-order through her website.
The “Love on the Brain” singer announced the music drop on Instagram this afternoon. She posted a photo of herself laying on top of a collection of records with the caption, “Today’s kids will never know what vinyl is, they said!” Rihanna also uploaded a quick minute-long video of all the new record colors — yellow, light blue, clear, black, green, pink, and red — while a mashup of her greatest-hits played in the background.
Each vinyl record is priced differently, but they range from $100 to $140 dollars and come packaged with a newly-designed shirt or sweatshirt depending on the album. Though pre-sale begins today, the orders will not ship until November 11th.
As we know Rihanna’s music is both iconic and rare, as are her routinely sold-out records. Since her last album Anti in 2016, the singer's music catalog has been increasingly difficult to get a hold of. If you’re a fan, this may be your last chance to snag a hard-copy of her work!
