Just when we’re finally getting “Rude Boy” out of our heads, reports confirm that Rihanna will release a new album on November 16. The 22 year-old singer’s fifth studio album is a follow-up to her “Rated R” album and will be called “Loud” according to MTV News.
Rihanna released a new single, “Only Girl (In The World),” produced by Stargate, who also worked with the artist on hits like “Don’t Stop the Music,” and “Rude Boy.” The new song premiered live on the Ryan Seacrest show just yesterday, September 7.
The stylish star says in a webcast on her official fansite Rihanna Daily, “I’m done recording the whole album.” The singer tells her fans she didn’t want to let them down with her music. “You guys are always defending me, so now you’ve got some great songs to justify it.”
But are we just a little over Rihanna? Are we being over-saturated with her manufactured edge, dance song after sidewalk runway show?
What are your thoughts? Is Rihanna’s new album too soon, or is it wise for Rihanna to ride her popularity while she still has it?
