Rihanna also managed to snag another Billboard cover

Hip-Hop’s favorite bad gwal is currently making history on her 777 tour. For the first time ever, Rihanna invited an entire plane full of music journalists to travel through 7 seven countries in 7 seven days right along with her. So far they hit concerts in Mexico City and Toronto. Our friends Jeff/ItsTheReal, Erika/Billboard, and YN/RapRadar and more are riding along for the action. Tonight they are in Stockholm (Nov. 16), with Paris (Nov. 17), Berlin (Nov. 18), London (Nov. 19), and NYC (Nov. 20) still to come. From their collective reports, it seems like RihRih is really treating the group like fam, and has showered them with gifts, photos, and of course plenty of champagne. There hasn’t been any reported drama as of yet. Stay tuned for more updates as the tour continues.
