Rihanna Reveals Title of New Album: Loud

Trend setting Songstress, Rihanna finally reveals the name of her new album.  Check out the release date and exclusive track info.

Rihanna already gave us her “Rockstar 101” best on last year’s Rated R, so this time she’s turning it up with a new CD whose title says it all. The singer revealed in a chat with fans over the weekend that her fifth studio effort will be called Loud.

It’s due out on November 2 and is preceded by the single “Only Girl (In the World),” which premiered on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show early Tuesday (September 7).

“I’m done recording the whole album,” Rihanna revealed during the chat, which took place on the official fansite Rihanna Daily. “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.”

While Rihanna said she’ll miss the Rated R era, she promised that one year after that dark, emotional effort, “nothing compares to the album I just made.” She also teased some “surprise” collaborations on the disc, though she didn’t reveal any names during the chat.

“Girl” is produced by Stargate, who also collaborated with Rihanna on such early hits as “Don’t Stop the Music,” “Hate That I Love You” and the R banger “Rude Boy.”
