Is Rihanna working on her new album already? When Rihanna is not dealing with her very over the top and on and off again relationship with Chris Brown, she’s keeping herself very busy and expanding her opportunities. Although music is clearly her first priority, she’s not dabbled into cosmetics with her successful partnership with MAC, she has her own fashion line with River Island, and she’s the Executive Producer of a reality show geared towards fashion (Styled to Rock). At age 25, it doesn’t appear as if she plans on slowing down anytime soon. In fact, some people feel Rihanna deserves to a take a little break since she’s been so busy touring and launching her many projects outside of music. But if there’s any truth to the latest reports, she isn’t taking a break and she’s already working on her eighth album. Vibe reports:
Hit producer Rodney “Darkchild:” Jerkins told the Source that he was working with a slew of music’s finest including Britney Spears, Mariah Carey and Jennifer Lopez, including some potential material for the bad gal’s next project.
“I just finished a couple songs with Jessie J over in London and I also wrote a couple of songs that are being considered for Rihanna’s new album, so there’s a lot of good stuff happening so we’ll see,” he said.
While Rih confirmed her return to the studio after posting a flick with rapper Wale, Rih’s creative process for her eighth effort still seems to be in its infancy.
