Rihanna’s ‘Man Down’ Producers Tease Her Next AlbumJuly 30, 2011
After finding success crafting the music for Rihanna’s “Man Down,” the production duo known as the Jugganauts — Sham “Sak Pase” Joseph and Verse Simmonds — are looking to recapture the magic on the Bajan beauty’s upcoming sixth album.
“From what I understand, she is closing the album up now, and we did two records for her that she really, really loved and I’m really excited about them as well,” Simmonds told Mixtape Daily. “They are records that we wrote and produced as the Jugganauts.”
Simmonds is hoping that he and partner Sak Pase land another track on Rihanna’s album. And while he couldn’t confirm the Jugganauts’ contributions will make the final cut, he said was “99.999 percent” certain for now. For those wondering whether the singer’s new tunes will sound anything like the reggae-infused “Man Down,” Simmonds says no.
“Nah, definitely not, because we always try to constantly — as producers, as artists — we try to always come with something different, a whole new sound,” he said without elaborating on what that new record would sound like.
