It's signed, sealed, and undisputed: Rihanna won 2017 like it was the Slayage Olympics.
The Rihanna reign never lets up, but this year it just went BEYOND. Here are 21 reasons why 2017 belonged to the Bad Gal only.
Let's get it out of the way: Everyone knows Fenty Beauty was a complete smash this year.
Rih raked in $72 million during Fenty Beauty's first month, but it was SO much more than a money maker. She re-centered the conversation about inclusive makeup by releasing 40 foundation shades — and that was just her makeup debut!
Rihanna's brand is shaking the table and changing the beauty game!
Rihanna revived the Puma brand and made it a street style staple with her Fenty X Puma collections.
Most people think Rihanna merely has a line with Puma, but the Bad Gal has actually been creative director of the Puma's womenswear vertical since 2014.
Our lady is a BOSS!
She had the ladies strutting through the streets in furry slides and stepping out in school-themed gear for Instagram street style shots.
Another fun fact: Fenty x Puma has also made its music video debut when Cardi B performed in the Motorsport video alongside the Migos and Nicki Minaj.
Our girl didn't just grace one Vogue magazine cover this year...
She channeled the ancient Egyptian Queen Nefertiti for Vogue Arabia.
Rihanna appeared in the "Valerian" movie as the sauciest stripper ever in life!
Rihanna played the magical stripper "Bubbles" in the action-film, which also starred supermodel Cara Delevingne.
Speaking of curves: Robyn Fenty also got thick AF this year and we loved it. More importantly, SHE loved it!
Never forget Rihanna didn't just slay the Met Gala; she WAS the Met Gala.
Rihanna was the Met Gala red carpet's grand finale and she was all anyone could talk about. Her name rang bells so loudly at the event that she was named the co-host of Met Gala 2018.
In the words of Rih Rih: Hold ya wigs!
Our fave also got a new bae — a HOT one!
Saudi billionaire Hassan Jameel managed to steal Rihanna's heart while ALL of us weren't looking. They've been spotted making out in pools, grabbing coffee, and basically living their best lives —and it's cute AF.
Yes, let that love life flourish like your bank account, Rih!
Don't forget the popping shoe collaboration she had with Manolo Blahnik.
The So Stoned collection dropped on July 6 and the shoes were the most elegant, classy bejeweled things ever.
Since she made Fenty x Puma a little more financially accessible, I wasn't even mad that these babies were wild, wild expensive.
She made socks great again, too. Idc. Idc.
She wanted to make sure we feel the Bad Gal Magic all the way down to our toes, so she made a collection of socks with Stance Muse that display some of her most iconic looks.
Rihanna spoke out against bullying with a powerful and sweet message on her social media.
She shared this meme during a huge online discussion about bullying in schools.
"Just heartbreaking!!!!! We're losing our babies to bullying," she wrote. "Teach your kids love and equality.
"Teach them about the beauty in uniqueness and how to embrace others' differences," she continued. "I can't imagine what the families of these 2 young girls are feeling right now! But my heart breaks for you!! #BulliesKill."
The pop star could totally be using her social media platform to only peddle sexy selfies and Fenty Beauty sneak peaks — but she still takes the time to speak out against causes that matter.
