Rihanna has already started work on her next album.
The ‘Umbrella’ singer is already “closing up” recording on her sixth album according to Verse Simmonds, part of production duo The Jugganauts, who worked on her track ‘Man Down’, from her last alum ‘Loud’.
He told MTV: “From what I understand, she is closing the album up now, and we did two records for her that she really, really loved and I’m really excited about them as well. They are records that we wrote and produced as the Jugganauts.”
He added the track will have a different sound to ‘Man Down’, and that they are always trying to better themselves creatively.
Verse said: “It’ll definitely not sound the same, because we always try, constantly – as producers, as artists – we try to always come with something different, a whole new sound.”
It was rumoured earlier this year Rihanna was to work with Beyonce Knowles on a track, which could be included on her next album.
A source said: “Rihanna has wanted to work with Beyonce for some time now and, after talking about a duet at this year’s Grammys, they have finally managed to set aside some time to record together.”
