Claude Kelly talks about working on Rihanna’s new albumAugust 19, 2012
Via MusicJustice: Rihanna is currently working on her seventh studio album and speculation regarding the production of the new set has been rife, with everybody from David Guetta to Sia being listed as possible producers/song writers.
Speaking to Kempire Radio recently at the BMI Live show in New York, singer song-writer Claude Kelly confirmed that he recently worked with the Bajan singer in London and that Sia, David Guetta, Harmony & Stargate have all worked on the new album.
Kelly; who has penned tracks for Kelly Clarkson (‘My Life Would Suck Without You’), Ke$ha (‘Take It Off’) and Jessie J to name but a few also revealed that the album will feature a new stadium sound rather than traditional radio friendly material.
“Rihanna’s a worldwide superstar at this point and she’s performing in stadiums and arenas now, so I wanted songs that reflected her audience,” revealed Kelly. “When I was in London she was performing at a festival in front of like I’m guessing like 30,000 – 40,000 people so I saw that sea of people sing along to a song, so I wanted songs that could do that. So I didn’t want small songs that only worked on radio, so I tried to do anthemic big stadium themed songs. She’s got a navy behind her so you gotta support the navy.”
