Stargate have said they’re midway through working on Rihanna’s new album

RihannaAlesha Dixon collaborators Stargate have had a chat about working on Rihanna’s new album and have revealed they’re “in the middle of the record”.

“We are right in the middle of the record,” Tor Erik confirmed to Vibe magazine. “We have written some incredible material that we are really excited about and that Rihanna is excited about. I can’t wait for the world to hear that.”

We’re quite excited to hear it too, Tor, but do go on.

“Because she moves around so much if you looked at paparazzi pictures it looks like all Rihanna does is party. But in the studio she is one of the most focused, hardworking artists, and she wants to get things done.”

Asked if there were ever any dramas in the studio, they replied: “She is very easy to work with but hard to please. She knows what she likes and what she doesn’t like, and if she doesn’t like the material then there’s no convincing her.”

Like most good popstars, there’s only one type of record she’s interested in really.

“She just wants us to play her some hot records and if she likes it she doesn’t want us to change anything. If she doesn’t like it we just have to move on to the next one. It’s very easy with Rihanna.”

Rumours are there’s an album coming in Q4 but who knows now this film of hers has been delayed.
