It’s easy to see that Rihanna is at a new stage in her career, and maybe even at a new place in life altogether.
While promoting her new animated film, Home, the industry’s most beloved bad girl took a moment to talk about her highly anticipated eighth studio album with MTV News. Needless to say, she said a few things that had our ears perking up – namely, that her upcoming album will be full of music that feels soulful and timeless.
“I’ve made a lot of songs that are just really, really big songs. From the jump, they just blow up. And I wanted to kind of get back to – not that they weren’t real music, but I just wanted to focus on things that felt real, that felt soulful, that felt forever.”
RiRi continued in her unforgettable accent:
“I wanted songs that I could perform in 15 years. I wanted an album that I could perform in 15 years, not any songs that were burnt out. I find that when I get on stage now, I don’t want to perform a lot of my songs because they don’t feel like me. So I want to make songs that are timeless.”
We believe her. Because, “FourFiveSeconds.”
