New Rihanna Album Coming Soon?

We knew it. Rihanna drops an album every year and we’re hoping 2014 is no different.

Ri Ri has been secretly sliding in and out of studios from coast to coast and last week, she held a private album listening party for Def Jam executives and reps. According to the source, who leaked the news, Ri Ri played 10 new tracks including a potential lead single titled, ”I’ve Been Searching For Something To Ignite Me When I’m Alone.”

Earlier this month, an alleged tracklist for Ri’s forthcoming album hit the net, but there hasn’t been chatter since. Neyo, who’s working with Ri, said this about the upcoming opus,

“I’ve heard some of the stuff and the stuff I heard is absolutely incredible. I can’t speak on what it sounds like because I’ll get in trouble, but I definitely feel like people are gonna enjoy it. Anybody that’s Rihanna fan is gonna stay a Rihanna fan and anybody that’s not, might become a Rihanna fan behind what’s coming. Just gear up for it.”

Ri Ri’s remaining mum about the project, but did mention this during an interview at the launch of her men’s cologne line,

“I can’t give you any hints of when it will drop. It’s going to be great, that’s all I’m going to tell you and I’m excited about it. I try to battle myself and outdo everything I’ve done and that’s been the hardest thing to do. You start over-thinking things at times. I can’t wait for everybody to hear (the music) little by little. … little by little. I can’t wait.”

We’re ready.
