Rihanna has been dominating the beauty industry with Fenty Beauty, but fans has been yearning for a new album from the Barbados singer. In a interview with Vogue Riri opened up about a Reggae inspired album, but additional info has been discovered.
Rolling Stone has now received details that she is indeed working on a dancehall project. Ri’s label Roc Nation have been on the hunt for new beats to finish the album that will put her Caribbean flare on full display.
A list of potential people to contribute to the album are as follows:
R. City (Rihanna, Beyoncé), Stephen “Di Genius” McGregor (Vybz Kartel, Sean Paul), Linton “TJ Records” White (Serani, Vybz Kartel), Ricky Blaze (Gyptian), Tyshane “Beam” Thompson (Yo Gotti, Lecrae), Kranium, and Chronixx. Vogue also mentioned that veteran dancehall producer Supa Dups (Drake’s “Controlla” and “Too Good”)
In the past Rihanna has experimented with the sounds of dancehall with “Man Down” & “You Da One” in 2011 & “Work” in 2016.
“[Rihanna’s team] have, no lie, 500 records for this project [from] different producers and writers,” one dancehall producer tells Rolling Stone. “They’re only choosing 10 records. They’ve been having writing camps and trying to keep them quiet for almost a year and a half now. I’ve been flying to Miami, flying to L.A., cutting records nonstop for this project.”
Aside from the Reggae album, Ms. Fenty is also working on a Pop album with Skrillex & Boi-1da.
