Even though she is still releasing singles from her latest album Loud, Rihanna is planning to drop her sixth studio album soon, maybe even later this year. In a recent interview with MTV’s Mixtape Daily, one of the project’s producers says the forthcoming set is closing soon, which would continue Rihanna’s chronicle in releasing an album every year since being signed by Jay-Z to Def Jam.
“From what I understand, she is closing the album up now, and we did two records for her that she really, really loved and I’m really excited about them as well,” producer-singer-songwriter Verse Simmonds told MTV. “They are records that we wrote and produced as the Jugganauts.”
Simmonds and his partner Sham “Sak Pase” Joseph, better known as the Jugganauts, are responsible for Rihanna’s controversial hit “Man Down,” and now they are hoping Rihanna and her camp will like more of their work.
“99.999 percent” confident that one of the tracks they produce will make the cut, Simmonds says don’t expect another record like “Man Down,” insisting their always evolving.
“Nah, definitely not, because we always try to constantly – as producers, as artists – we try to always come with something different, a whole new sound,” he said without elaborating on what that new record would sound like.
