Songwriter Claude Kelly has been writing ‘stadium anthems’ for Rihanna’s album

Writer of popular songs Claude Kelly has ‘dropped’ some further ‘info’ about Rihanna’s newest opus.

Speaking to Kempire Radio, the part author of Miley Cyrus’ hit ‘Party In The USA’  said he had been in the studio with David Guetta, Sia, Harmony and Stargate to ‘create’ some tracks for the album.

Asked what his goal was in the sessions, the man partially responsible for Christina Aguilera’s ‘Vanity’ explained: “Rihanna’s a worldwide superstar at this point and she’s performing in stadiums and arenas now, so I wanted songs that reflected her audience.”

The ‘Hypnotico’ mastermind continued, saying: “When I was in London she was performing at a festival in front of like I’m guessing like 30,000 – 40,000 people… So I didn’t want small songs that only worked on radio, so I tried to do anthemic big stadium themed songs.”
