Fans of Barbadian R&B/pop hitmaker Rihanna have a sumptuous vinyl box set to look forward to, featuring all eight of her wildly successful studio albums in one package.
Released December 16, The Studio Album Vinyl Box will include all of Robyn Rihanna Fenty's studio efforts, from her dancefloor-filling debut Music of the Sun (2005) to this year's ambitious Anti. Those first seven have each gone platinum, while all have reached Billboard's Top 10 (Unapologetic (2012) and Anti topped the Billboard 200). And with 14 No. 1 singles and counting on the Billboard Hot 100 (roughly half of her cumulative Top 10 hits), she sits just behind The Beatles and Mariah Carey for the most chart-toppers in a career.
Released almost entirely as double-vinyl sets (and with four albums making their debut on the format), The Studio Album Vinyl Box features a 186-page hardcover book of oversized reproductions of each CD booklet, plus a replica of Rihanna's signature on the foil-stamped slipcase and accompanying turntable slipmat.
