Yes and YES!
We are totally pumped for this!
Although she never really left us, many were left underwhelmed with Rihanna's dark turn on her latest, Rated R!
Luckily for us, Bu Thiam, the Vice President of Def Jam Records, is assuring the world that girlfriend's next album is going to be anything BUT a snoozefest! In fact, he promises greatness!
Rihanna is coming along incredibly. I’m trying to push her to where every song will be a hit from 1 to 12. I’m talking about NO album fillers. Our bar for this album is Michael Jackson’s Thriller. We got smashes from Stargate, Ester Dean, Mel & Mus and Rock City. We’re definitely going in with Ne-Yo, The-Dream and other writers and producers that have always been a part of her creative process since day one. She’s great to work with and very hands on with every song that’s being written and produced. She has visual concepts for just about every song. It’s already giving me the feel of a timeless album, and right now is her time.
Damn right, gurl! That's EXACTLY what we want to hear!
Come back with a VENGEANCE!
What do U think?? Are U excited with the direction RiRi's latest is taking??
