Despite refusing to name any features or producers on the project, the publication confirmed the sound of her highly-anticipated new album.
“She plans to make a reggae album,” wrote Vogue. “Though it’s too soon to name a full list of collaborators, one early influence may be Supa Dups, the Jamaican-born record producer who has worked with such dancehall greats as Beenie Man, Sean Paul, and Elephant Man.”
Rihanna also revealed that Bob Marley was her favourite reggae artist of all time.
“I’m gonna sound like a real tourist when I tell you my top Bob songs,” she said, before revealing she loves ‘Three Little Birds,’ ‘No Woman, No Cry,’ ‘Redemption Song’ and ‘Buffalo Soldier’.
