She’s become one-half of the ultimate pop princess collaboration after recently joining forces with Colombian star, Shakira.
And Rihanna proved she is well and truly cream of the crop as she arrived at a photoshoot for international fashion bible, Vogue Brazil, on Monday.
Showcasing her impeccable figure in all its glory, the 25-year-old singer displayed her toned tum in a white cropped vest as she hopped off a helicopter on the tropical island of Angra dos Reis, near Rio de Janeiro.

The chart-topping starlet looked cool and casual in a pair of comfortable Birkenstock sandals, while accessorising her low-key look with a simple silver necklace and chic retro-inspired sunglasses.
Wearing her raven locks flowing in loose, tousled waves around her shoulders, the Diamonds hitmaker completed her outfit by injecting a pop of colour with a slick of pillar-box red lipstick.

Rihanna was carrying a plastic bag full of belongings as she stepped off the chopper, before heading out to catch a boat from a nearby pontoon.
Assisted by a loyal army of helpers, the singer later switched into another low-key beach ensemble as she prepared to work her magic in front of the camera for Vogue Brazil.
Turning on the glamour in a chic wide-brimmed straw hat, the raven-haired bombshell looked incredible as she covered up in a simple loose-fitting grey vest dress.
Chatting to her assistants as she got to work on the shoot, Rihanna looked happy and relaxed as she soaked up the South American sun in the picture-perfect destination.
There was one final outfit change for Rihanna before her work was done for the day, with the star later trading in her grey dress for a loose-fitting jersey bandeau top, which she teamed with retro-inspired multi-coloured disc-pattern hotpants.
Appearing to have her locks styled into a chic crop, the singer completed her ensemble with a slick of her trademark red lipstick and huge gold hoop earrings.
In addition to taking part in the photo-shoot, Rihanna has been in Brazil for a series of meetings with her latest collaborating partner Shakira.
The duo dropped their new song, titled Can’t Remember To Forget You, on Monday to much fanfare from their respective loyal fans.
Both women took to Twitter in the early hours to promote the single, with RiRi counting down to its debut in full on KIIS FM’s popular On Air With Ryan Seacrest breakfast show.
‘Me and @Shakira finally teamed up on a record and it comes out in 10 min! @OnAirWithRyan,’ the Barbadian beauty wrote in the lead-up to its 6am release.
She then followed up with seven- and two-minute warnings, before making the big announcement: ‘Here it is now!! #CantRemembertoForgetYou @OnAirWithRyan @RyanSeacrest.’
Shakira also got in on the action, tweeting both in English and her native Portuguese.
‘Today is the day! Are you ready? #CantRememberToForgetYou @Rihanna ShakHQ,’ she informed her fans, a day after a small portion of her vocals were leaked online.

The song’s simplistic lyrics depict falling head over heels for a lover followed by the struggle of letting go after the relationship runs its course.
Lines include, ‘I’ve never met someone so different; You’re part of me now, so where he goes I follow’ and, ‘When you look at me, the only memory, is us kissing in the moonlight.’
Notoriously unlucky-in-love Rihanna then chimes in during the second verse with the all too telling: ‘I go back again, fall off the train; land in his bed, repeat yesterday’s mistakes.’
