Rihanna’s eighth album is still in the works, but she is planning to release a “timeless” album that will stand the test of time with classic songs. MTV News caught up with RiRi while promoting her animated film Home.
“I’ve made a lot of songs that are really, really big songs,” she said. “And I wanted to kind of get back to—not that they weren’t real music, but I just wanted to focus on things that felt real, that felt soulful, that felt forever.”
“I wanted songs that I could perform in 15 years; I wanted an album that I could perform in 15 years,” explained RiRi. “Not any songs that were burnt out. I find that when I get on stage now, I don’t want to perform a lot of my songs. They don’t feel like me. So I want to make songs that are timeless.”
