Eminem Collaboration Influences Rihanna’s New Music

Rihanna

After the success of her collaboration with Eminem, Rihanna’s label is calling up the producer behind the No. 1 record to cook up another hit for her next album.

Alex Da Kid, who produced Rihanna’s duet with Eminem, “Love the Way You Lie,” tells Billboard that Island Def Jam is hungry for another smash for their star’s new album. “We worked together about a year before ‘Love the Way You Lie’ in London, and obviously that song has helped the people around her and her label say, ‘Oh, that’s a big hit, we want another one,’” says the Londoner. “You know how the music industry is.”

The in-demand hitmaker, who’s recently been in the studio with Avril Lavigne, describes RiRi’s new music as a combination of her past work. “I’d say it’s like a mixture of her two sides. It’s commercial, but at the same time it’s got an edge to it—it has substance.”

JustJared caught up with Rihanna after her Madison Square Garden show last week where she told him that the project will be “strong, fun, and sassy.” Check out some backstage footage from her New York City show below.

    @ King:
    If anything, Gaga is putting Rihanna out of business, not the other way around.
