Striking the perfect balance between work and life is never an easy task, even for the world’s richest singer. On Wednesday morning, Rihanna took to Instagram, to open up about her “overwhelming” year followed by a close-up selfie of the star, pouting at the lens with her signature red lips and a black hat on.

She addressed her loved ones, family and co-workers in the heartwarming post and apologised to them for her busy schedule. In the post, Ri-Ri sported a white tee, captioned “Art School Dropout” and completed her looks with solid gold chains. "To all my friends/family/coworkers who I have yet to get back to in the past months...please forgive me. This year has been quite an overwhelming one, and I’m working on that ish called Balance. brb," wrote Rihanna.

Over the past few months, the “Unfaithful” singer has been in the limelight on both her personal life and professional endeavors. Along with her recurring smash hit singles, Rihanna started her Fashion Empire and became the first black woman in history to head a fashion house in collaboration with the prestigious LVMH. Not only her fashion line Fenty Beauty become one of the top-selling items in Sephora, but this year Ms Fenty has also posed for a bunch of magazine covers, including the 25th Vogue cover.

The Savage x Fenty lingerie brand too became popular almost readily due to the size-inclusive approach. With her ever-expanding an empire, the 31-year-old Grammy-winning singer is currently eyeing her Forbes estimated $600 million net worth, reported Daily Mail

In her personal life, the Fenty Beauty founder is presently dating the 31-year-old Saudi Arabian businessman Hassan Jameel. What's more, there are already baby rumors surfacing online. However, the “The Rude Boy” songstress has hardly spoken about her relationship or boyfriend or the release dates of her album. 

It looks like Rihanna is gearing up for a well-deserved break, and is desperate to “get back to” her loved ones. So, will there be a brand new Rihanna album before the end of 2019? The fans will have to wait, to find out that!
