Rihanna Speaks On New Album

Posted on: September 15, 2008

In a recent interview with an Australian magazine, Rihanna spoke about several things, including her upcoming LP:

Here’s what she had to say about her new album, which is slated for release early 2009:

“I’m not going to give anything away, but it’s going to be very edgy. ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’ definitely spoke to a year in my life, a year of attitude. It stood for who I am – the attitude, the edge. My next album will take it up a notch. I want to keep growing. I don’t want to get stuck. I want to change.”

There’s no doubt that the 2007-2008 year was her’s. With her world-dominating hit “Umbrella”, which catapulted her from innocent island girl to international super star, then with “Take A Bow” and “Disturbia” recently sitting atop the charts, a Grammy, two moon men (VMA’s), a Cover Girl contract and almost 10 million records sold world wide, it seems like this girl just has it and was destined for success. But is it too much too soon?

Many people are saying she needs to take a break and wait for at least the end of 2009. She has released a total of 3 albums plus a re-release in a total of 3 years; her first 3 albums were released in a 2 year span. Either it’s good marketing or bad marketing, but as they say “absence makes the heart grow fonder”. Maybe a vacation or two…. or three? While it’s good to ride the waves of success and bend the rod while it’s still hot, too much too soon can be a bit over whelming for some people and they can grow sick of you. That’s never good! While I’m a very big fan of Rihanna, I must say, I need at least a bathroom break.

In other Rihanna news, her and R&B singer Chris Brown will embark on a world wide tour and their first stop will be New Zealand. When tickets recently went on sale for their concert, it sold out in 20 minutes! Must be nice.
