Details have begun to circulate online surrounding Rihanna's untitled comeback album stating the singer has shown growth and a new style since her publicized domestic dispute with Chris Brown earlier this year.
According to Justin Timberlake, the singer has taken a more "grown-up" approach for her follow-up to 2007's Good Girl Gone Bad.
"The stuff we've come up with in the studio, it's the next step for her," he said in an interview. "It's a little more grown-up. It's got some edge to it." (MTV)
London producers Chase & Status have also spoken on the records they have put together for Rihanna.
"When she doesn't like something she'll let you know," they explained. "When she likes something she'll let you know as well. On one track she came up with some cool melodies and cool ideas, the kind of vibe she wanted. This album for her is just about what she likes and what she's into and what she wants. If she's not into the vibe she'll be like, 'Nope, I don't think it's for me'. Or if something is a bit too bolshie, she's like, 'That's not what I'm trying to push right now.'" (BBC News)
While an album title has not yet been confirmed, a rumored release date and list of guest appearances has landed online.
We can all look forward to some new Rihanna tunes as she gears up for the release of her fourth album. Play.com lists the new album becoming available on November 23, 2009. She has enlisted the help of Tyson Ritter of The All-American Rejects, along with Ne-Yo, Drake, and Akon. (Ear Sucker)
Aside from her music career, an on-going investigation has begun to discover who leaked Rihanna's domestic dispute police photo earlier this year.
Former housemates Rebecca M. Reyes, a nine-year veteran of the force, and rookie cop Blanca Lopez have both been "assigned to home" while the investigation plays out. Department officials had not filed any charges against Reyes. In addition to being a gross invasion of privacy, profiting by leaking confidential material is also a misdemeanor. Additional criminal charges could also be faced for revealing the identity of a domestic violence victim. (E! Online)
