Rihanna Confident With Monster Album and Ryan Tedder Under Umbrella ?Monday, April 13, 2009
Tedder, the latest songwriter/producer rumored to be working on the effort, is well known as the lead singer of the band One Republic but also for penning Beyonce's "Halo" and Leona Lewis' "Bleeding Love'.
Already tapped for Leona Lewis' sophomore disc, Tedder's rumored addition to Rihanna's effort comes after the producer's recently revealed work on Kelly Clarkson's "All I Ever Wanted" album.
While Tedder's placement on the album has not been confirmed, sources say Def Jam is sure Rihanna's new album will be a hit. In fact, Ace Showbiz claims the label has even referred to the disc as a monster album that has producers and songwriters clamoring for shot at pitting their latest work with Rihanna's vocals.
Rihanna's fourth studio album is slated for release late 2009.
