Rihanna Announces Fall Release For New Album

Pop singer hints that the studio effort will include dubstep influences.

After teasing details about her upcoming album earlier this week, Rihanna continued delivering details about the record on Friday (September 16) when she tweeted that her sixth studio album will drop this fall.

When one of the Barbados beauty’s Twitter followers asked, “When’s the next album due?” Rihanna exuberantly replied, “THIS FALL!!!!!”

With the singer’s celebratory party anthem “Cheers” currently riding high on radio airwaves, Rihanna hinted that the forthcoming LP may include dubstep influences as heard on her 2009 effort Rated R. “You KNOW how I been lovin Dubstep since Rated R,” she tweeted.

Don’t expect the songstress to take a break from the biz anytime soon either. Asked if she can take some time off, the 23-year-old chart topper wrote, “Yes, when I’m tired!!!”

Collaborators for the forthcoming project began dishing details on the LP months ago. Back in July, producer Verse Simmonds, who worked on the Rihanna’s reggae-infused hit “Man Down,” talked to MTV News’ Mixtape Daily about the album’s progress.

“From what I understand, she’s closing the album up now, and we did two records for her that she really, really loved, and I’m really excited about them as well,” Simmonds said. “They are records that we wrote and produced as the Jugganauts.”

Simmonds admitted that he was “99.999 percent” his Jugganauts’ contributions will make the final cut, adding that his tunes on the LP will not sound similar to “Man Down.”
