Kanye West Reveals He Is Executive Producer Of Rihanna’s New Album

Published: Monday 9th Feb 2015 by Sam

Word has it the recording of Rihanna‘s eighth album has been anything but smooth, hence the myriad of delays that have plagued the project.

However, it seems the star may have found her musical knight in shining armour in the form of Roc Nation comrade – Kanye West.

Details below…

While arriving on the red carpet at last night’s Grammy Awards, the rapper revealed that he is not only working on his own new music, but is also serving as the Executive Producer on Rih’s.

When pressed for a release date by host Ryan Seacrest Yeezy was coy, but appeared enthused.

**********

Theoretically, this could be exactly what the LP needs. A genuine, eclectic, and progressive talent helping shape its sound and lyrical content.

However, we’re not yet “sold”.

‘FourFiveSeconds’ is authentically terrible and, if its any indicator of what’s to come, this may pan out as one those projects that read well on paper yet doesn’t deliver in reality.

The song’s all around air of “try hard” is alarming because that has never been Rihanna’s core proposition. Sure her talent is a big ball of basic, however she’s succeeded by smartly bouncing from one trend to the next and hitting home runs in the process. Trying to become an “artiste” at this junction (or the muse for one) is at best overly ambitious and more realistically just not her calling.

That said, being the fair and unbiased site we are, we’ll wait to hear more before judging.

    Rihanna new song is boring. Even her stans know it.

    • Rihboy February 9, 2015

      Please speak for yourself. It’s sitting pretty at number 1 on iTunes….it’s on repeat on my phone daily. Honestly I didn’t like it when it first came out. I didn’t want to give it a chance because of the new sound. However I find myself singing it all day at work or even when I’m at home chillin it’s so funny how this blog is the only one shading the collaboration. I’m sold that they are just a bunch of messy hating bottoms.

        No he should thank her

    • kingbeybitch February 9, 2015

      Dont forget to thank Eminem!

  8. Career Ender February 9, 2015

    this song is kinda good, I heard/saw it for the first time today at the Grammys
    .
    she sounded good (vocally improved), qhen did Kanye become a singer?
    .
    I think this is more of a McCartney song than a typical standard Rihanna song
    .
    the Grammys performance was good tho
    .
    #2 iTunes 3 biggest artists ever since madona crawled the earth 7000 years ago and still not going #1?

  9. Lake Erie February 9, 2015

    Wow, this is going to be interesting. I’ve never bought Kanye’s albums but he does make music, so this will be something to see.. Sidenote: this site knows they can lowkey shade the hell out of Rihanna. Smh. Lol

  10. Career Ender February 9, 2015

    not Basic Fenty totalling 3/8 solo Grammys without having to hang on a rapper’s hairy ballz
    .
    8 albums 3 Grammys 750mil records
    .
    55 feature whor-e ……5 Grammys *sigh*
    .
    as basic as Katy is, this is in the same boat as her

    • KeKe February 9, 2015

      wena stop acting like you watched the grammys u probably only have sabc 1 2 3 and etv no dstv for you basic cheap ass

    • RihHive February 9, 2015

      The difference is that Rihanna actually has Grammys.

  11. KeKe February 9, 2015

    So? Kanye is actually a very good producer I see sam is still greedy, he is not content with the more than 1000+ comments and clicks his cheap as blog has accumulated over the past week stay salty AF sam it won’t help make beyonce AOTY winner.

    • kingbeybitch February 9, 2015

      Beyonce won 3 other Grammy’s lmao your so stuck on AOTY b**** she won 3 others awards

      • KeKe February 9, 2015

        You’re*

  12. Bey hulu February 9, 2015

    If I had a penny for every time Sam has predicted a Rihanna era would flop, I would be a [email protected]@king billionaire. Repeating the same tired tirade about Rihanna will get you click but won’t change the inevitable. Meanwhile my fave has 20 golds to her name. Slayonce!

  13. Al February 9, 2015

    Rihanna Rihanna Rihanna……
    Child say goodbye to your career.
    First that FourFiveFlop s***?! What was you thinking?! Now Kayne producing your album. He was hot producer in the early 2000s… Well I thought you would suprass Mariahs 18 No1s but child you won’t be doing that. Hope you saved them pennies or well sell u on Celeb Apprentice

  14. Keri Qween February 9, 2015

    Sam woke up this morning still a little salty about AOTY KIII it’s OK Sam

  15. kingbeybitch February 9, 2015

    • datreddone23 February 9, 2015

      • kingbeybitch February 9, 2015

        Can y’all show a pic with her holding a Grammy last night???

  16. Stephy. February 9, 2015

    Interesting…

  17. TRUTH SERUM February 9, 2015

    Sam.. **blank stare**. You forgot to give her props for that awesome performance. Be fair

    • kingbeybitch February 9, 2015

      He did on twitter

      • TRUTH SERUM February 9, 2015

        I stand corrected:)

  18. kingbeybitch February 9, 2015

    Anyways Rihanna sounded really good last night. I was surprised that the hive wasn’t shading her on Twitter they gave her props

  19. Auntie February 9, 2015

    Hmmm…..

    No.

  20. TheElusiveLamb February 9, 2015

    I’m here for it. He could produce her some really good material. This honestly could phenomenal material. I want some My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy or however you say it material for Rihanna. I have a feeling that this will be her best or second best album.

  21. SippingmyTea February 9, 2015

    Okayy
    I like Rihanna
    Not a big Kanye fan but this shall be interesting

  22. hmmm February 9, 2015

    Ever since he became a Kardashian , Kanye’s been trash lately. He might ruin it. People who dont even know them, swear Beyonce and Rihanna hate each other, but that roc nation collab would probably be great.

  23. ummmm February 9, 2015

    Oh God, R8 gonna sound like Yeezus and idhtt.
    If this ain’t MDTF Kanye, then he can stay tf away. Ain’t nobody got time for that Screamo/distorted noise sh!t. Rih better be Exec producing too.

  24. Jewel February 9, 2015

    Mess! Navy better prepapre for the floppage I thought they said ffs was going to to shoot to #1 after Grammys night?

  25. david February 9, 2015

    I think people are confused about the song the song is automatically considered pop because of the artist.Its a folk/pop song folk because of the guitar played by Paul.I dont hear country. Im surprised nobody pointed this out,the overall mood of the song reminds me of the blues.Im actually surprised Rihanna would do a song like this.

  26. M February 9, 2015

    What the hell is this article? Where did Samantha get her degree? Because… I cannot take this any longer. Still on the delays that has plagued her album WHEN THERE WAS NO DELAYS. Rihanna has been recording the album for a year. She hasn’t said anything pertaining to a relase date of the album or other info prior to the surprise release of FourFiveSeconds. Tell me again, these myriads of delays? Unbiased and fair site MY ASS!!! Samantha is an immature little b****. ALWAYS. No matter what. HATING ON RIHANNA. Being childish with the tires shade. All of Sam’s faves love Rihanna. The entire music industry respects her too. Yet, someway, somehow it’s always something bad written about her. What has Rihanna ever done to you? If you don’t like her, why write all this hate all the time? Idgi. Sam is the definition of petty and childish. Thatgrapejuice needs to be shut down. Sam is a disgusting human being. I don’t usually wish such things but I hope he burns in hell.

    • red wine February 9, 2015

      I’ve been coming here foe over 6 years and it is what it is i’m the biggest Rihanna fan but this is Ms. sam’s blog if you don’t like what she post the best revenge is to just stop coming to this blog all of you people who so hate what he writes stop coming it’s simple but you people fall for his gimmick every time so he’s getting the last laugh

  27. DanYiel Teflon February 9, 2015

  28. Skyfall February 9, 2015

    I’m about FourFiveSeconds away from being done with this site.

  29. MISHKA February 9, 2015

    During the making of Watch The Thone, Jay-Z said Kanye made him do the sound ‘huh’ like 30+ times.

    We already know Rihanna is kinda lazy so she will just get high before every studio session.

  30. FutureCIARA February 9, 2015
