Rihanna is gearing up for the release of her latest album on November 2. Early this morning, she premiered her new single, "Only Girl (In the World)," on "On Air with Ryan Seacrest."
Over the weekend, Rihanna held a chat on her official fansite, Rihanna Daily and revealed that her new album will be called Loud. She shared, "I'm done recording the whole album. I made sure not to let you down with my music! You guys are always defending me, so now you've got some great songs to justify it. I didn't want to go backward and remake [2007's] Good Girl Gone Bad. I wanted the next step in the evolution of Rihanna, and it's perfect for us."
The singer said she's never been this excited about any album she's done, urging the members of her RihannaNavy to "get LOUD everybody, get crazy, get excited, cuz I'm pumped. I'm just gonna be ME, cuz that's what u guys love the most, and that's what makes me feel best.
Just being normal, normal for me is LOUD! Sassy, fun, flirty, energetic."
According to MTV News, she also teased some "surprise" collaborations on the disc, though she didn't reveal any names during the chat.
