#FENTYSocialClub opens this FRIDAY April 10 ‼️ @fenty and @badgalriri are bringing the party to your living room. We’re co-hosting a lineup of our favorite artists right here on Instagram Live. Tune in at 3pm PT/ 6pm ET / 11pm BST / 12am CET to see performances by @octavianessie, @fvckpdro, @kittycash and @stretcharmstrong. Streaming sets from LA to London.
Rihanna also donated quite a lot of money to coronavirus relief on top of providing entertainment, donating $5 million via her Clara Lionel Foundation to organizations all over the US and overseas, which helped food banks serving at-risk populations, provided medical equipment to hospitals, and helped speed up distribution of testing kits in Haiti and Malawi. Her home country, Barbados, received $1.4 million for ventilators.
She also teamed up with Jay-Z to distribute $2 million collectively to organizations in New York and Los Angeles to help vulnerable populations such as children of frontline healthcare workers, the elderly, the homeless, the incarcerated, and undocumented workers.
But of course, with so many fans — including Drake — clamoring for new music from the Bajan star, she’s also been hard at work on just that during quarantine. Hopefully, she’ have something new to play for fans who tune into Fenty Social Club this afternoon.
Check out the announcement for Fenty Social Club above, along with a preview of what to expect.
