Pop tart Rihanna is in a better place, personally and professionally, than she was a year ago, so it makes sense that she is being uber-productive. Ri is still promoting Rated R and is going to spend July and August on the road, headlining her "Last Girl on Earth" tour. She is dating Los Angeles Dodger Matt Kemp. Ex-BF Chris Brown is out of her life . Shit's good. Despite all of that activity, she is also working on new songs in the studio. This girl must never sleep.
Songwriter and producer Sean Garrett revealed some news about the album to MTV News, saying, "I can definitely say that her album is definitely gonna be way more exciting, happy. I hope she doesn't mind me saying this. I love Rihanna. She's fun, she's like a sister, and I tend to think she doesn't really take herself too seriously. And I think that's what this album is gonna be about. Remember when Rihanna was just the little girl from the island and she was just having fun with 'Pon de Replay' and enjoying life? It always seemed like, 'Dag, she has that thing.' And it wasn't so serious until the [Chris Brown] incident happened. And everything became so serious. That's just life. But I'm just happy to see her back. And I can definitely say the records that we've been working on are very positive and very explosive. Heavy in the club."
Ri's A&R rep also reported that "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. It's already giving me the feel of a timeless album, and right now is her time."
What is your favorite Rihanna jam? I have to go with "Take a Bow." It's such a great kiss off, one certainly fitting for ex!
