Rihanna Does the Shmoney Dance on a Yacht


We’ve seen Chris Brown, Justin Bieber, and Drake all do the Shmoney Dance. And now Rihanna has blessed us with some footage of herself getting down to Bobby Shmurda’s “Hot Nigga.” Fresh off “The Monster Tour” with Eminem, a bikini-clad RiRi filmed herself and her BFFs Melissa Forde and LeLe Boo smoking and dancing to the Brooklyn rapper’s hit while on a yacht.

“Shmoneyyyy #YachtEdition @leleboo_phucku #Robynnn @bobby_shmurda,” wrote Melissa Forde.

On Saturday, RiRi celebrated the ninth anniversary of her debut album Music of the Sun. “Thanks to all of you who’ve supported me throughout the years!” tweeted a grateful Rihanna. “I cant believe, already 9 yrs! I owe it to you man.”

She is reportedly working on a new album and has called upon hitmakers including Elijah Blake and DJ Mustard, who produced a ballad. “It’s not like anything you’ve ever heard from me before,” the West Coast hitmaker told Rap-Up TV.

Eminem and Rihanna Take ALS Ice Bucket Challenge On Stage

Rihanna and Eminem

Eminem and Rihanna’s tour capped off on an icy note.

After being challenged by Dr. Dre, the Detroit rapper finally took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge during the last stop of “The Monster Tour” at Detroit’s Comerica Park on Saturday. At the end of the show, Em took a seat on stage while Mr. Porter brought out a garbage can full of ice. But he decided to let Rihanna do the honors instead, dumping the cold water over her tourmate’s head.

“If this was not for charity, I would be so fucking mad right now,” said a soaked Em.

He then challenged Mr. Porter, Rick Rubin, and Rihanna herself.

“Where you going mischievous?” Em told RiRi before getting payback.

“I’m from the islands, I don’t do this ice shit. This ice shit doesn’t work for me,” she said before taking a seat.

Her assistant and hair stylist emerged from backstage with a large pot and drenched the singer.

Watch the ice-cold action below.

Rihanna and Chris Brown

Chris Brown and Rihanna reunited for a good cause. The former couple was just feet away from each other at CC Sabathia and Robinson Cano’s Summer Classic Charity Basketball Game at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on Thursday night.

Team Sabathia took on Team Cano during the competitive match-up, which featured celebrity players including Ne-Yo, Fabolous, DJ Khaled, and DJ Clue.

But the real MVP was Breezy, who scored 18 points, while his ex RiRi sipped D’USSE courtside and watched with her girlfriends including Skylar Diggins, Melissa Forde, and Cara Delevingne.

Sabathia and Cano had some help coaching on the sidelines from NBA and MLB pros including Derek Jeter, Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant, and more.

The event was a huge success, raising over $1 million for Sabathia’s PitCCh In Foundation and Cano’s RC22 Foundation.

Rap-Up TV: DJ Mustard Talks ‘10 Summers,’ Rihanna Ballad, & Jay Z

On Monday, DJ Mustard dropped his star-studded debut 10 Summers for free via Google Play. Prior to its release, the 24-year-old beatmaker teamed up with Brisk Bodega to preview the album for tastemakers at a listening event in L.A.

The project, which he describes as a “good classic West Coast album,” features appearances from Big Sean, Lil Wayne, YG, Lil Boosie, 2 Chainz, and more.

As the producer behind some of the West Coast’s biggest hits including Tyga’s “Rack City,” YG’s “My Hitta,” and Kid Ink’s “Show Me,” Mustard has been compared to the legendary Dr. Dre.

“That’s a big comparison,” he told Rap-Up TV. “I’m just happy that they’re comparing me to somebody that’s a billionaire. I can’t really complain.”

Now Mustard is expanding his résumé by producing for superstars including Chris Brown, Justin Bieber, and Rihanna.

“I got a song on her album already, but I’m tryna get some more,” he said. “It’s a ballad. It’s not like anything you’ve ever heard from me before. Some new shit. New sound. Might have me here for the next 30 [summers].”

Signed to Roc Nation, the in-demand hitmaker has also sent four beats to his boss Jay Z, and is confident a collaboration will happen. “We got a relationship, so I’m sure that’s coming regardless,” he said.

So where does he see himself a year from now? “Probably like $15 million up. I’m almost there. I think a year from now I should have $15 million. I’ll be cool.”
