Rihanna may sing like a cat in labor, but there’s no denying that she knows a hitmaker when she needs one.
Case in point Ester Dean.
The songwriter, whose credits include ‘Super Bass’ and Ms. Fenty’s own ‘What’s My Name’, shared a shot of herself in the studio with the the 26-year-old star today.
Given the lengthy delay RiRi’s eighth album has experienced, the pic should provide some comfort to the model’s fans who’ve been starved of her McMusic since 2012. Indeed, RiRi has skilfully been dodging proverbial bullets from artists far bigger than her for almost two years. And with the current quarter boasting major releases from the likes of Nicki Minaj, One Direction, Lil Wayne, and Taylor Swift, we can’t see how there’d be any logic in releasing this year.
Still, it’s a smart move assembling the right creatives such as Dean if she’s trying to put her best foot forward. We just hope she’s at least trying to put her best vocals forward too.
