The Bajan singer unveils 11 tracks which made the cut to 'Loud', seals deal with Jay-Z's Roc Nation, and will launch her own entertainment company.
It's only a month before Rihanna's much-anticipated studio effort "Loud" comes out, and the tracklisting has been unveiled ahead of the album release. According to Def Pen Radio, 11 tracks are lined up with Drake, Nicki Minaj and Eminem as featured guests.
The Canadian rapper lends his vocal on flirty song "What's My Name", and the Young Money femcee rides with Rihanna on uptempo track "Raining Men". As for the Slim Shady, he will spit his verses on the sequel to his hit single "Love the Way You Lie".
Although the tracklisting is claimed to be an official one, the list might get longer since Rihanna said she's working on a duet with Katy Perry. "We're actually in the studio talking about that right now," she told Entertainment Weekly. "So you never know!"
In another news, Rihanna confirmed that she has parted ways with manager Marc Jordan and is now under the umbrella of her mentor Jay-Z's Roc Nation management. "[I'm] so excited to take this next step in my career," she said in a statement to the Associated Press.
On top of that, the singer is going to launch her own entertainment company called Rihanna Entertainment. She says it will "merge all of her businesses, including music, film, fragrance fashion and book ventures."
"Loud" is set to be released across United States on November 16. Prior to that, she reportedly will perform at MTV European Music Awards in Madrid, Spain on November 7 and then will follow it by opening American Music Awards on November 21 at Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.
