After her much hyped Bxxxh Better Have My Money flopped, the Bajan superstar , 27, has dumped a load of material from her upcoming eighth album and is scrambling around for tunes.
It’s been three years since Rihanna’s last album Unapologetic was released and her new one was due out earlier this year but keeps getting pushed back.
A source says: “Rihanna is desperate for an edgy sound that will appeal to a European market as well as America.
“She’s keen to emulate the same smash-hit success she had with Calvin Harris’ We Found Love in 2011. So far she doesn’t feel the songs she has are delivering the full package.
“Her people have put in calls with the best songwriters on their books and requested they drop everything to help.
“Usually writing camps are set up where hundreds of songwriters are invited to spend a few days coming up with tracks for her. This time they’ve gone direct to guaranteed hit-makers as there’s no time to waste.”
