Rihanna Talks New Album

Diva Dishes On LP Delay

rihanna r8 thatgrapejuice Rihanna Talks New Album

With November creeping on, anticipation for Rihanna‘s eighth McAlbum continues to escalate.

Oddly, the set is taking much longer to cook than its predecessors and has seen the 26-year-old maintain a lengthy spell out of the spotlight – while the likes of Katy Perry, Taylor Swift and Beyonce have dominated the Pop landscape.

Under the guise of mystery and intrigue, the star has managed to evade questions about the project.

Yet, when promoting her new Rogue Man fragrance in Fort Belvoir, Virginia yesterday, she was asked about the LP directly and surprisingly answered.

Find out what she had to say below…

The microwaving of Rihanna‘s latest plate of greasy McMusic has been shroud in secrecy.

Indeed, sans select studio snaps, the only indication that the diva’s new album is nigh has been her well-timed return to Instagram and the slew of new photoshoots that followed.

However, in a new interview, Ne-Yo has revealed that he has had sessions with the 26-year-old – adding that what he’s heard of the rest of the LP is “incredible”.

Report: Rihanna Team Tease November Single Release

rihanna single 2015 thatgrapejuice Report: Rihanna Team Tease November Single Release

Historically, November has served as Rihanna‘s elected month to release new music.

Indeed, with the record-buying public proven to be more generous during the holidays, the star smartly targets this time of year to combat her inability to shift albums (at the level her peers can at any date on the calendar).

2013, though, saw the model deviate from her annual tactic due to competition from bigger acts.

However, it’s back to business this year. For, the 26-year-old’s team have shared an interesting drop of tea in the newest issue of Elle Magazine.

With all but an announcement rolled out, it’s fair to say Rihanna season is upon us.

The racy rebel, whose new album had been delayed for more than a year due to competition from chart rivals, must finally feel that the coast is clear as reliable intel informs us that a big reveal is nigh.

In the interim, the 26-year-old is pushing the visual component of her campaign hard; for, this week alone she returned to Instagram, covered Elle, and took off all her clothes for Esquire UK.

Moments ago, behind the scenes footage from the latter surfaced. Check it below…

Rihanna Covers Esquire UK / Strips To Birthday Suit

rihanna esquire cover thatgrapejuice 600x808 Rihanna Covers Esquire UK / Strips To Birthday Suit

Rihanna‘s bag of tricks suddenly doesn’t seem as deep anymore.

For, album in and album out…her antics are as predictable as her dial-tone vocals.

The pre-release approach to her eighth LP, which fans have codenamed ‘#R8′, is no different. Because, once again, the 26-year-old has resorted to stripping off her clothes.

Case in point, her new cover shoot for Esquire UK.

Being a family site, we can’t post all the pics. But the racier set are floating about on social media and let’s just say Fenty is pulling out all the stops (or should we say all her clothes). In one pic, she’s naked. Literally.

It’s as if there’s the belief that by showcasing her particulars she’ll suddenly ascend to the level of the album-sellers that she otherwise sits behind. If indeed that’s the case, we envisage she’ll be in for a rude awakening. Talent commands respect…not ta ta’s.

Anyway, more snaps below…

Calvin Harris Pours New Details On Forthcoming Rihanna Album

‘Acceptable in the 80s‘ performer Calvin Harris has revealed that he isn’t to appear on Rihanna‘s brand new album this week, doing so during a recent interview with the UK’s ‘The Sun.’

On the project, he revealed:

No I’m not on the Rihanna album. I did a few things for it but they don’t get back to you, there are a lot of people involved.

She listens to everything, I know that, but she’s got a strong idea and identity and an idea of what her album should sound like.

It’s not like they put me on ‘We Found Love’ because I’m signed to [Roc Nation], they did it because it’s a f*****g good song. It’s OK because I’m working on my stuff and it’s going fine.
