The 23-year-old pop star and Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive has been working on her new album, Talk That Talk, while on tour.
“We have a portable studio that we set up at the different hotels that we are staying at. We set up shop anywhere in the hotel,” producer Kuk Harrell told HollywoodLife. “Before we went on the European leg of Rihanna’s Loud tour, we started recording the album in Los Angeles. Rihanna likes to work late hours, so she would come into the studio at 9:00 p.m. and work until 6:00 a.m.,” he added.
