Rihanna hasn't released an album this year, but you wouldn't know it to glance at the charts or listen to Top 40 radio. The 24-year-old pop star and unsinkable admiral of Rihanna's Navy has released a string of hits in 2012, all off of last year's LP, her sixth, Talk that Talk. She's managed endorsements, tours and more, all while weathering the ups and downs of life under the heat of a very big spotlight.
On the next episode of Oprah's Next Chapter, RiRi will open up for the talk show queen in her native home of Barbados, where she visited recently to attend the funeral of her grandmother.
Rihanna's episode of ONC airs Sunday, August 19 at 9/8c. The "Where Have You Been?" singer also recently graced the cover of Harper's Bazaar.
