LONDON – America’s female music star Robyn Rihanna Fenty best known as Rihanna opted to rent an entire island to get cracking on music. Nicknamed “the English Necker,” Osea island costs £20,000 to rent per day.
After relocating to the UK last year, the singer has frequently been holed up on an island in an estuary in Essex.
Earlier this week, Rihanna 31 teased that she was preparing new material, her first offering since 2016 revealing she was busy in a studio at 5:40 am.
She has been renting a state-of-the-art studio on Osea island – which has its own gym, cinema and pool as well as quaint little cottages for her entourage.
The source said: “Rihanna has invited family to spend time with her while she works. She’s had a few stints in the studio since her last album, but she’s been really focused on her makeup, clothing and lingerie lines.
“But since she moved to London, she has had friends and family staying with her so she can work at her own pace, surrounded by the people she loves,” added the source.
Rihanna is a Barbadian singer, businesswoman, fashion designer, and actress. Regarded as a pop icon and one of the most influential contemporary recording artists, Rihanna is known for embracing versatile musical styles and reinventing her image throughout her career.
