Rihanna is one of the biggest artists on the planet. Her name is a brand, she's a colossal force in the music industry, her acting career is already underway and she is drop dead gorgeous. She is a symbol of female empowerment and people literally worship the ground she walks. She has millions of people following her on both Twitter and Instagram and is never shy to push the envelope.

An example of Rih's power was evident when Puma released their fourth quarter numbers. Towards the end of 2014, Puma surprised everyone by naming Rihanna its women's creative director. Bloomberg Business reported that Puma's 2015 fourth quarter earnings managed to surpass roughly $975 million in sales, a 17.1 percent jump from the fourth quarter in 2014. The reason for the spike? You guessed it, Rihanna.

Her most recent album, ANTI, was reviewed positively by most critics and her single "Work" featuring Drake is sitting on top of the Billboard Hot 100 for the second week in the row. Actress Keke Palmer recently shared videos on her Snapchat of herself eating pizza while listening to a version of “Work,” which sounded very much like PARTYNEXTDOOR. The reference track sounds very similar to the original as PND’s own accent mimics that of Rih’s on the final cut.

If you watched the video, you probably fell more in love with her as the Barbadian showed off her dancing skills. Azealia Banks, however, is not a fan. Drizzy and Rihanna performed the song at 2016 BRITS Awards.

With the weather warming up and winter ending, lets take a look back at Rihanna's sexiest bikini pictures. Try not to drool.
