Rihanna's New Album Aimed to Be 'Timeless' Like 'Thriller'


Rihanna


Def Jam puts high expectation on Rihanna, hoping she could make phenomenal music in her next record like Michael Jackson's 'Thriller'.

The recording process of Rihanna's next studio installment "is coming along incredibly," so Bu Thiam revealed. Stargate, Ester Dean, Mel & Mus and Rock City, Ne-Yo and The-Dream are some of the people mentioned by the Vice President of Def Jam to be involved in the effort.

He shared to Vibe, "I'm trying to push her to where every song will be a hit from 1 to 12. I'm talking about NO album fillers. Our bar for this album is Michael Jackson's Thriller." He added, "She's great to work with and very hands on with every song that's being written and produced. She has visual concepts for just about every song. It's already giving me the feel of a timeless album, and right now is her time."

With the bar set high, it is no wonder then if "there is a big writing camp with 50 other producers writing for Rihanna's next album." Earlier this year, Taio Cruz revealed about what he knew concerning the Barbadian songstress' record, adding "They have hired out 20 to 30 different studios and had everyone in there collaborating, switching people around. Each person did about six or seven songs. It doesn't normally work like that but she's a huge artist."

And, one of the acclaimed music makers who is ready to hook up with Rihanna is David Guetta. "We['re] thinking of doing something together," Guetta told MTV at the recent Activision E3 party in Los Angeles. "We just have to make sure it's OK with her schedule and my schedule, 'cause ... this is what happens. Unfortunately, it's not only about the music anymore, it's also about schedules, which is really boring but, you know."

Giving a tease on what he will be crafting, the French DJ stated, "Well, you know I'm a DJ, so I make beats that make you wanna dance. -- And I think she was one of the first to do that in that urban world, so you know, I think it would be good for her to do it again."
