With a storied decade long career that boasts an impressive co-star tally featuring the likes of rockers Bono and Paul McCartney, it seems Grammy-winning pop diva Rihanna is no stranger to working with some of music’s biggest legends.
Arguably en route to such status herself, if recently surfaced reports are to believed, the Bajan beauty is ready to pencil another name in her growing list – Prince.
See how and why via the report below:
Via Boston Herald:
“Rihanna has secured a Prince track for her album.
The ‘FourFiveSeconds’ singer is still putting together her eighth studio album and has snapped up a single penned by the iconic star for the collection, which she may debut at the BRIT Awards on Wednesday.
An insider revealed: ‘Rihanna is so chuffed he wants to work with her and is considering rushing a performance of the track into the Brits. She really wants the song to be a single.'”
The reports surface just as news arrives that her ‘FourFiveSeconds’ co-star, Kanye West, is due to be in attendance at the annual showing. And, as the song continues its ascent up charts on both sides of the pond, some fans are calling for a follow-up to her dynamic 2015 Grammys live rendition of the tune.
Either way, while it is not apparent what song she will be performing if she performs at all, what is apparent is that pressure and anticipation for the tunes’ parent album (her 8th) is growing. A similar anticipation is greeting the 2015 Brit Awards, which will take place at London’s O2 Arena and air February 25th on ITV and Fuse Network (11:30PM/10:30PM CT), as it is already chockfull of highly anticipated performances from the likes of Taylor Swift, Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran and Madonna,
