Things have been a bit quiet on the Rihanna musical front of late: We were denied our yearly Rihanna album – Christmas just wasn’t same if we’re honest – and instead we had to make do with features on Eminem’s massive hit ‘The Monster’ and Shakira’s ‘Can’t Remember to Forget You’, the latter of which was accompanied by a pretty steamy music video. So far, so Rihanna.
But now it seems our beloved RiRi wasn’t resting on her laurels and is in fact working on not one, but TWO new albums for 2014.
The first will be her forthcoming eighth, as yet unnamed, studio album and the second will be a “concept album” for a new DreamWorks animated movie called ‘Home’, which is due out in November. The film’s star studded cast will also feature the voices of Rihanna herself, The Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons and Jennifer Lopez. Not only that, but her character in the movie – Gratuity “Tip” Tucci (!) – will be performing songs from the album in the film itself.
Rihanna albums seem to be like buses these days – you wait for one and two come along at once. Hurrah!
Are you excited about the new Rihanna albums?
