Rihanna Has 25 Million More Reasons to Finally Drop Her Album

The pop star reportedly inks lucrative deal with Samsung.

Published October 29, 2015

When Rihanna declared, "B**** Better Have My Money," she wasn't playing.

The New York Post is reporting that Samsung will be giving RiRi a $25 million deal to sponsor her upcoming album and tour.

The New York City tabloid says this mega deal was seven months in the making with the final details being held up, so Rihanna could put the final touches on the LP. The pop diva's eighth album will reportedly be named Anti, releasing in the next few weeks.

The news follow's Thursday's headlines of Adele's team reportedly requesting a $30 million commitment from Apple in support of her new album and world tour.

It shouldn't be a surprise that the Post is also reporting that Jay Z and Rihanna's manager Jay Brown were crucial in getting RiRi's Samsung deal done.

Two years ago, Hov brokered a $5 million marketing deal from Samsung in support of his Magna Carta Holy Grail album, which he delivered one million copies of for download on Samsung's then-new smartphone, the Galaxy III, in exchange.

Roc Nation just keeps winning...and cashing out in the process.
