Rihanna has made a serious business move that very few artists have ever been able to accomplish. The 27-year-old has purchased the rights to all her previous recordings which includes 14 number one hits. Why is this huge? well when you own the masters you own the right to license the music. Basically she will get paid every time her songs play on television shows, in commercials, movies or when the music is sampled. This will generate millions of dollars for her and her heirs for generations.
Rihanna’s newest project “ANTI” was certified platinum 15 hours after it was released.
