Rihanna Is Ready To Start Working On Her New Album

Rihanna Seventh Album

Rihanna is ready to start work on her next new album according to Capital FM.

The 24-year-old songstress has a rough idea of what her seventh studio album will entail.

"Right now we're working on collecting and creating the sound first before we even start working on the lyrical direction or melodies," Rihanna told Capital FM. "I kind of have an idea though, and it's very rough right now."

After working with electronic dance music DJ Calvin Harris on her last album's first single "We Found Love," Rihanna's rough idea may include some house beats. She recently met with electronic duo Chase & Status to discuss her upcoming album.

"We Found Love," dominated the Billboard Hot 100 Chart for 10 consecutive weeks at the No. 1 spot. Though the video came under some fire from anti-rape campaigners for its "disgraceful" content -- remember the spanking? -- the song’s 10-week streak was a personal best for the singer. The last female artist to achieve such a feat was Beyonce with her 2006 hit "Irreplaceable."

Before Rihanna devotes all of her time to the next hit album, she will first reveal a new fashion-related project, and the venture may have something to do with her TV talent hunt for a new fashion designer.
