A new Rihanna album is on the way. Based on a report from Rolling Stone, Rihanna has been hard at work crafting her sound on her upcoming dancehall inspired album and has completed over 500 songs in the process. Rihanna first mentioned the possibility of releasing a reggae-centric album publicly during an interview for her Vogue June issue.
It’s common for stars at Rihanna’s level to cull the best demos from reams of submissions when selecting songs for their albums. According to Rolling Stone, “Rihanna’s team have, no lie, 500 records for this project from different producers and writers. They’re only choosing 10 records.”
Reports claim every artist, every producer, every songwriter in Jamaica or of Jamaican descent has been working on Rihanna’s album. A source who is working on the project says, “I think they’ve got eight songs but her A&R team is still asking for records,” while another source close to the project says, “They’re looking for one more song.”
A representative of Rihanna declined to comment on the new album.
