I’m really luvin’ Rihanna’s latest album Rated R. It’s done really good here in Europe, but in the States RiRi has had less success with this album. By less success I mean by her standards. Compared to something like say Good Girl Gone Bad where every single song was a smash hit.
Well rest assure RiRi fans, because her record label are claiming her new album’s going to have so many hits, it’ll be like Michael Jackson’s Thriller. Apparently they’ll be no album fillers.
Bu Thiam, the Vice President of Def Jam Records says:
Rihanna is coming along incredibly. I’m trying to push her to where every song will be a hit from 1 to 12. I’m talking about NO album fillers. Our bar for this album is Michael Jackson’s Thriller. We got smashes from Stargate, Ester Dean, Mel & Mus and Rock City. We’re definitely going in with Ne-Yo, The-Dream and other writers and producers that have always been a part of her creative process since day one. She’s great to work with and very hands on with every song that’s being written and produced. She has visual concepts for just about every song. It’s already giving me the feel of a timeless album, and right now is her time.
