Rihanna Might Have Worked With Sam Smith On Her New Album

What Who Rihanna wants, Rihanna gets.

Anticipation for Rihanna’s eighth album has now officially reached boiling point so naturally whenever her name is mentioned it’s news. Very little information is known about the upcoming project, besides the fact that Ne-Yo believes it might be her best work yet, so the Navy almost flooded Twitter yesterday when man-of-the-moment Sam Smith said something about it.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, the British singer shared his excitement for #R8 and hinted that he has worked on the new material with RiRi.

“I’m personally really excited for Rihanna’s album. I know some stuff about that record that no one knows.”

Whether or not this means they’ve recorded a duet, he’s co-written a song or he’s simply fangirling over everyone’s favourite bad gal, it’s interesting to see the list of the possible collaborators grow as this comes just days after it was revealed she has reunited with Kanye West on a new song. I mean, who else would have two such different artists on the one record?

After all, Sam Smith is one of the biggest stars in the world right now as he was the only artist of 2014 to sell more than 1 million copies in the UK and US (that’s better than Taylor Swift) so it wouldn’t come as a surprise if Rihanna wanted to work with him.

Also, I would not be mad if the “Stay With Me” singer gave her another ballad as huge as “Diamonds” or her very own “Stay”. Not mad at all. Well, as long as she still gives us those *****-pat club anthems too!

Do you want to see Sam on R8 or would you like to see Rih back on the dancefloor?
