RIHANNA has been renting an island in Essex as she works on her new album.
The pop superstar relocated to the UK last year and has been secretly living in London for the past 12 months.
She’s been recording her latest record – her first since 2016 – in a state-of-the-art studio on Osea island, and it comes with its own gym, cinema and pool and cottages for her entourage.
A source told the Mirror: “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.”
Osea island costs £20,000 to rent per day – but that won’t be a problem for Rihanna, who was named the richest woman in music – despite not releasing a new album in three years. She apparently has a net worth of $600million.
Rihanna recently revealed that she’s been living in London for a year, saying she’s been “keeping a little incognito”.
She said: “I enjoy walking around the block. When I go walking, I try to keep it a little incognito.”
The star has also discussed being a young millionairess.

Rihanna said: “I never thought I’d make this much money, so a number is not going to stop me from working.
“I’m not being driven by money right now.
“Money is happening along the way, but I’m working out of what I love to do, what
I’m passionate about.
“Work will change when my life changes in the future but an amount of money is not going to stop that.”
