Rihanna has been pretty mum about her upcoming album, which will be 100% danchall and some deets have been revealed about it.. She’s also doing a pop oriented project as well.
Rihanna first mentioned the possibility of releasing a reggae-centric album publicly during a Vogue profile in May, and now Rollingstone has some inside tea of what to expect…
According to Rollingstone:
“Jamaican producers and songwriters have submitted “500 records” for new album that’s been more than a year in the making… People are already gearing up to go in that direction [towards dancehall] because somebody as big as her is doing that,” he adds. “If an artist like Rihanna comes out and does [an album influenced by Jamaican pop], that’s definitely going to shift the needle. They’re only choosing 10 records. They’ve been having writing camps and trying to keep them quiet for almost a year and a half now. I’ve been flying to Miami, flying to L.A., cutting records nonstop for this project.”
They’re looking for 1 more song as of now (possibly the lead single)
I can’t wait.. There are several tunes that Rihanna has done that had me like:
