Confirmed, Rihanna to Release New Album on November 23
"The Wait Is Ova. Nov 23 09," Rihanna recently wrote on her Twitter. Though the Barbadian songstress didn`t mention anything about her new album, a representative for the singer confirms to Entertainment Weekly that the record indeed will arrive on that date.
With that settlement, Rihanna will face off Adam Lambert who will drop his post-"American Idol" studio effort across U.S. the next day. Most recently, she was spotted in Berlin reportedly for the album`s photo shoot.
On what to expect from the record, Ne-Yo recently told E! Online, "Expect an edgier, almost angrier Rihanna on this one. Rihanna says some things on this album that you`ve never heard her say before."
Another star who gave clue on Rihanna`s new record was Akon. Unlike Ne-Yo who said the song he and Rihanna are crafting is not ballad at all, Akon shared, "I`m going to lighten her up. I don`t want an angry Rihanna."
Beside Ne-Yo and Akon, The All-American Rejects` vocalist Tyson Ritter, Stargate, James Fauntleroy, Christopher "Tricky" Stewart, The-Dream, Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z, Kanye West, OneRepublic`s Ryan Tedder, Soulja Boy, Shontelle and Pharrell Williams are all expected to make contribution to the album.
