With her first No. 1 album and 12th No. 1 single, Rihanna has a lot to be grateful for this year. As 2012 comes to a close, the “Diamonds” singer pens a handwritten letter to her Rihanna Navy, reflecting on the past and looking toward the future.
“I look forward to embarking on this ride with you, unwilling to sacrifice what we believe in, taking our lessons and growing from them,” she writes in the note, which she posted on Instagram.
She also shares some words of wisdom. “Let our inspirations drive us, never steering from who we truly are,” she says.
