Rihanna has released the tracklisting for her forthcoming Loud album.
Here it is for thy gawking pleasure:
1 – S&M
2 – What’s My Name (feat. Drake)
3 – Cheers (Drink To That)
4 – Fading
5 – Only Girl (In The World)
6 – California King Bed
7 – Mad Down
8 – Raining Men (feat. Nicki Minaj)
9 – Complicated
10 – Skin
11 – Love The Way You Lie Part II (feat. Eminem)
See what she did there? RiRi has done her own vocal-intensive rendition of Eminem‘s global hit ‘Love The Way You Lie’. Expect this to start charting the minute it’s released online. If the #1 single ‘Only Girl (In The World)’ is anything to go by, I’m completely ready for her return to euphoric energetic pop.
Songwriters and producers said to be involved include all the usual suspects: Stargate, David Guetta, Sean Garrett, Rico Love, Ne-Yo, Ester Dean (co-writer of ‘Rude Boy’) and even fellow home gurl, Shontelle.
Rihanna‘s Loud drops in Australia on 12 November. The same day as Pink‘s Greatest Hits… So Far!!!, Cheryl Cole‘s Messy Little Raindrops and interestingly enough, Guy Sebastian‘s Greatest Hits.
The Barbadian beauty also made headlines today for switching up her management team, signing Jay Z‘s Roc Nation to handle her bidness from here on in.
RiRi is laying foundations for her own empire, Rihanna Entertainment, with a book, fragrance, fashion and music deals in the pipeline. You’ve been warned.
