Rihanna Discusses New Album & Home Soundtrack

Rihanna sat down with V Magazine and discussed her home soundtrack and what fans can expect for her upcoming album. Check out what she has to say below.

“The Home record was a soundtrack I created especially for the film,” she says. “My eight studio album was a place for me to completely express myself creatively with no boundaries

and try anything that I wanted.” It’s clear that fans are fiending for the album material for that very reason. When she cryptically instagrammed a Paolo Roversi-lensed record sleeve with caption “#March26,” many of her fans stayed up the entire night before, speculating on Twitter about when her new song, “Bitch Better Have My Money”, would hit.

The thing that made me fall in love with [‘FourFiveSeconds’] is the juxtaposition of the music and the lyrics,” she told V. “When you read the lyrics it’s a completely different song than what you are hearing. The music is easygoing, but the lyrical content is very loud and in your face. In performing this, the key was to make sure the aggression wasn’t lost.

Rihanna’s real power will be in reminding us her distinction as a vocalist, with her scratchy verses, wailing peaks and chesty depths, which harness new levels of grit and ferocity- no need for the bells and whistles of her previous productions. In this regard, the record achieves something rare: It maintains Rihanna’s ubiquitous pop dominance while stripping away the excess to arrive at some disarmingly straightforward.

“Dude, I’m in love with my interludes. This one called ‘James Joint’ is on constant repeat,” she told the magazine. “[The album is] soulful and aggressive, whether it’s lyrically, musically, or just the tone of my voice.”
