*During a chat on her official website, Rihanna revealed details about her upcoming fifth studio album and follow-up to last year’s “Rated R.”
Due in November, the new album will be titled “Loud,” the singer told fans, claiming that the project takes her music to “the next step.”
Responding to fans’ questions, she said: “I’m done recording the whole album.
“I didn’t want to go backward and remake ‘Good Girl Gone Bad.’ I wanted the next step in the evolution of Rihanna, and it’s perfect for us.”
She added: “I’m gonna miss the ‘Rated R’ era too, but NOTHING compares to the album I just made.”
The record’s first single, “Only Girl (In The World),” produced by Stargate, debuted this morning on RyanSeacrest.com at 3 a.m. PT/6 a.m. ET (listen here), along with the artwork (see photo above), which she revealed was shot in the Hamptons.
Rihanna also confirmed details of her new fragrance ‘Reb’L Fleur’, which is named after a tattoo on her neck that reads “Rebelle Fleur.” [See photo below.]
