It seems the Rihanna navy’s prayers of a dancehall album from their Queen are about to be answered.
New details have emerged regarding Rihanna’s Upcoming Dancehall Album
Our favorite Avon lady is preparing to snatch us bald with a complete album devoted to exploring her Caribbean roots. According to sources, Jamaican producers and songwriters have submitted “500 records” for new album that’s been more than a year in the making.
According to Rolling Stone, Supa Dups, the veteran dancehall producer behind recent hits like Drake’s “Controlla,” is said to be “one influence” on the album. “Most of the biggest producers and singers connected to dancehall and reggae have submitted material for the album, including producer-writer duo R. City (Rihanna, Beyoncé), Stephen “Di Genius” McGregor (Vybz Kartel, Sean Paul), Linton “TJ Records” White (Serani, Vybz Kartel), producer-singer Ricky Blaze (Gyptian), Tyshane “Beam” Thompson (Yo Gotti, Lecrae), dancehall singer Kranium and reggae singer Chronixx. According to one producer with knowledge of the album’s process, the mainstream Top 40 machine has been represented at some Rihanna sessions by superstar electronic producer Skrillex and Boi-1da (Drake, Beyoncé and Jay-Z)”
“They’re only choosing 10 records. They’ve been having writing camps and trying to keep them quiet for almost a year and a half now. I’ve been flying to Miami, flying to L.A., cutting records nonstop for this project.”
