Words on the street suggest that Rihanna will mash up rock 'n' roll and pop sounds in order to keep the R 'n' B tune in her new album.
Rumor has it, Rihanna's upcoming studio album will carry more rock 'n' roll sounds than her previous effort "Good Girl Gone Bad". Though so, she reportedly will keep the R&B tune by mixing the rock materials with pop sounds.
"The album will be full of musical styles and will mark a change for Rihanna and her fans, who will not be disappointed with the result," so Rihanna Daily wrote on its site. "At the moment nobody has recorded, with the exception of those with the singer Chris Brown, which were canceled and will not appear on the album."
Furthermore, several duets between Rihanna and undisclosed featured guests will be included in the new record. Other details about this studio project are still under tight wraps, but earlier last month, Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z and Kanye West were rumored to hit studio with her. She was also claimed to team up with Trina to diss Chris Brown.
Most recently, OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder, Soulja Boy, Shontelle and Pharrell Williams were said to help Rihanna working on the album as well. Up to date, there is no clue on when she will drop the effort.
Beside being busy with her own project, Rihanna also managed to give some advice to Sugababes on choosing materials for the British group's new album. She has been listening to Sugababes' new songs and "saying what she liked and what she didn't."
