A new year for Rihanna means fresh new music and album for her fans. The Bajan pop star is reportedly in talks with hit-makers Chase & Status to produce her upcoming album.

According to the duo, they recently met up with RiRi to discuss producing songs for her next studio LP.

“We hope so. We saw her recently and caught up with her at the O2 a few months ago and we talked about it then,” said Will Kennard. “She’s always looking to write on interesting sides of music. It’s just finding the time really, we’re still artists as well as producers.”

He added: “We’re currently trying to get album three finished. We love what she does and any chance we’ll get, we’ll take!”

Chase & Status previously worked with Rihanna on her 2009 Rated R platinum selling album and her latest smash hit single “Talk That Talk.”
