Rihanna has snapped up hit making producer Sean Garrett (Beyonce, Pussycat Dolls) for a follow up to 2009s “Rated R”. “It’s just so infectious. It’s about getting past any drama and just being happy to be alive,” Garrett tells Rap-Up of a song slated to appear on Rihanna’s new album. “It’s an encouraging record. It feels great, and it’s got great tempo. I made sure that it was bulletproof. While it is unclear when the album, or its first single, will be released, Garrett is happy to see the Rihanna he loved back in the studio. “To be honest, I wasn’t really that excited about hearing her in a dark zone,” he said. “I love Rihanna for being that girl. … She’s like the lil’ fantasy chick â nice brown skin, beautiful woman with a Caribbean swagger that’s ridiculous.” David Guetta (“When Love Takes Over,” “Sexy Chick”) has also been linked to the forthcoming album.
