Watch Yeezy reveal the news in an interview at the Grammys.
Kanye West has revealed that he is the executive producer of Rihanna's new album.
The 'Only One' rapper stopped to talk to Ryan Seacrest during the Grammy Awards at the weekend and whilst explaining how his 'FourFiveSeconds' collaboration with Rih and Paul McCartney came together, he dropped the big news.
"I'm executive producer of Rihanna's album" he said.
"I played her my album and I said I've done a few songs with Paul McCartney and she couldn't get past this record," said 'Ye. "She had to have it on her album. And she sounds really amazing on it. And [Roc Nation CEO] Jay Brown did his stuff-izle and made sure he got the record for Rihanna. So now we’re at the Grammys doing it."
The trio teamed up to perform the song for the first time at Sunday night's awards ceremony, with Kanye also performing 'Only One,' a tribute song to his mother and daughter.
No official details about Rihanna's new album have been unveiled yet, although it is rumoured to be called 'R8' and to drop sometime this year.
