Although she is pop’s bad girl, Rihanna is no stranger to the world of electronic music. From her mega-hit “We Found Love” with Calvin Harris to working with David Guetta and Nicky Romero on Unapologetic, RiRi has been experimenting with powerhouse EDM producers.
MTV News caught up with Nicky Romero at the Tomorrrowland festival in Belgium, where he informed us that his professional relationship with Rihanna is far from over. “We actually produced the record called ‘Right Now’ on her album Unapologetic. So I made that one together with David Guetta and now we’re working on a follow-up.”
The production on the track will be “out of the box,” he told us, adding quickly with a smile, “In a smooth way.”
Nicky Romero has been busy at work with many other projects as well, mainly finishing up his “Legacy” record with Krewella, who, according to Romero, “saved his life” on the project with their top-of-the-line vocals. The young DJ also has an album on the way featuring the likes of Fedde Le Grande and the aforementioned David Guetta.
As for Rihanna, she is currently finishing up her two-month Diamonds world tour alongside her DJ opening act GTA. The group, consisting of Matt Van Toth and Julio Mejia, generally stick to clubs and after-hour spots when performing, but found Rihanna’s audiences to be “f—ing amazing.”
