What to expect from Rihanna's forthcoming studio album has been revealed. Spilling the beans on that matter was Ne-Yo while attending 2009 MTV Video Music Awards at Radio Music City Hall on September 13.

Ne-Yo opened up to E! Online that he has been in a songwriting session with Rihanna. "Expect an edgier, almost angrier Rihanna on this one. Rihanna says some things on this album that you've never heard her say before," he stated.

Another star who gives clue on Rihanna's new record was Akon. Unlike Ne-Yo who said the song he and Rihanna are crafting is not ballad at all, Akon shared, "I'm going to lighten her up. I don't want an angry Rihanna."

There hasn't been any official statement regarding the working title for Rihanna's upcoming effort. The All-American Rejects' vocalist Tyson Ritter, Stargate, James Fauntleroy, Christopher "Tricky" Stewart, The-Dream, Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z, Kanye West, OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder, Soulja Boy, Shontelle and Pharrell Williams are all rumored to make contribution to the album.

Rihanna's fans are very delusional. Gurl can't sing a note for real. She just uses computers and fierce outfits to mesmerize people who haven't a clue about music. She's a talentless beauty. But she knows well whom she might sleep with, to gain success.

She can't sing. We will hear what others will make her say, and have a whole new lot of edgy outfits, crazy hairdos, and a whole new meaning for the word "fake".

Rihanna can definitely sing! I think she's absolutely gorgeus. She did well so far. She's important to the music business.
