NEW YORK, United States, Tuesday January 30, 2018 – Barbadian-born songstress Rihanna has another Grammy to add to her growing collection.

She walked away with her ninth such award on Sunday night for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration, on “Loyalty” with Kendrick Lamar.

Wearing a shiny, chocolate-coloured trench coat draped on her body like an off-the-shoulder dress, paired with matching boots and gloves, Rihanna thanked the rapper/songwriter for giving her the “incredible opportunity for being on such a great record”.

“I love this record. I’m honoured to do this with you. Congrats, you deserve this one,” Rihanna said as she addressed Lamar directly in her part of the acceptance speech at the 60th annual Grammy Awards in New York City.

Rihanna was not only nominated – and a winner – but also performed at the show.
She thrilled the audience with her hit “Wild Thoughts”, alongside DJ Khaled and Bryson Tiller.


Rihanna has had 33 Grammy nominations since 2008. She is also the female artist with the most wins in the Best Rap/Sung Collaboration category (5).
