Of course Rihanna is working on her next album. Releasing lots of albums is her thing. It’s not a problem when they’re really good like Rated R and Loud, but when they sound like Daffy Duck pushing five watermelons through his urethra like Talk that Talk did, then it becomes an issue.
- Marina and the Diamonds’ boyfriend and pal of Calvin Harris BURNS, who is currently also working on the new Kelis album.
- Dutch DJ Nicky Romero, Bonnie McKee, David Guetta, and Songwriter/engineer Kelly Sheehan. They all spent the day in the studio working together, and finished two songs.
- Possibly Sia. Following his work Guetta and McKee, Romero tweeted a photo of himself the next day with Guetta and the Aussie songstress, while Sia also tweeted that she was “writing smashes for pop starz” at the same time.
Rihanna has also revealed that she’s planning to launch her biggest world tour yet in 2013, so it looks like her next era will be slightly less half-assed than Talk That Talk was.
“We Found Love” was close to being the best pop single of 2011, so if you’re pissed about RiRi coming back so soon, console yourself with the fact that she’s at least going to drop a really good single. You don’t need to bother listening to her more-than-likely shitty new album. Just say no, and listen to Kelis and God$ha instead.
