PICS: Rihanna says she is excited to celebrate 10 years in music as she launches new perfume

2015-09-01 17:00

New York - Rihanna says she's thrilled to have had a decade-long career in music and she plans on celebrating the feat at some point this year.

"Definitely a very big deal for me. You know, I can't believe it's 10 years already, but we definitely have to celebrate this year," the singer said during an interview on Monday. "There are a few things I have in mind, so you'll have wait on that, but don't think I'm forgetting because this means a lot to me that I made it to 10 years."

Rihanna released her debut album, Music of the Sun, in 2005. The 27-year-old has released seven albums, launched multiple Top 10 hits and won eight Grammy Awards.

This year she's dropped three singles, including the Top 5 hit FourFiveSeconds, and says she's busy working on her eighth album.

"New album is going really, really great. We have recorded a lot of songs and I can't wait to finish and put it out. That's my next step," she said.

Rihanna made the comments at Macy's in downtown Brooklyn at the launch of her new fragrance called Ri Ri. Feverish fans screamed inside the packed store, singing her lyrics to past hits and dancing wildly as one of her songs blasted from speakers.

"I know I made a great decision coming to Brooklyn because Brooklyn fans are on another level," she said. "They are full of energy and they're loud and I like that. They're going to turn up in here today."

The singer said Ri Ri is the first of a new trilogy of fragrances. She's had more than a half dozen other fragrances in the past.

"I intentionally wanted to do something fun, something that made you feel young, flirty, you know, cute," she said with a smile. "It's like a brand new pair of shoes."
