Calling Lily Allen, Duffy and Leona Lewis as British singers who have amazing voices, Rihanna wants them as her collaborators.
Rihanna has revealed to the media that she would love to duet with Lily Allen. Beside that, she also names Duffy and Leona Lewis as other British female singers she looks forward to team up with.
"Lily Allen is bad ass - I love her. I also really like Duffy and Leona Lewis, who is so beautiful, with an amazing voice," the 20-year-old Barbadian singer said in a statement. "I would love to do a collaboration with those girls."
Furthermore, Rihanna shares that she will begin to record new songs, some of which will be penned by Chris Brown, for her next LP early next year. "I'm going to start work on my next album early in the year. There may be a cool collaboration, but you'll have to wait and see," she stated.
To her U.K. fans, Rihanna thanks them for their support noting, "I can't believe I have three songs in the UK Top 40. I just wanna say thank you to the UK for all your love. Don't ever stop. I will always come back here. I would love to do 'The X Factor'."
Previously, Rihanna reportedly put the producers for "The X Factor" in a difficult situation when she allegedly canceled her appearance on the TV show. However, denial came from her camp, claiming that "she was never confirmed for 'The X Factor'." Her representative explained, "She was only scheduled to fly in for the Jingle Bell Ball and the Royal Variety Performance and was always going to be flying back to the US yesterday."
