While the promotion for her 2009 album “Rated R” has yet to come to a close, those working with Rihanna on its follow up say her next album is going to be timeless and possibly the next “Thriller.”

“Rihanna is coming along incredibly. I’m trying to push her to where every song will be a hit from 1 to 12. I’m talking about NO album fillers. Our bar for this album is Michael Jackson’s Thriller,” Bu Thiam, A&R for Def Jam told VIBE Magazine recently. “We got smashes from from Stargate, Ester Dean, Mel & Mus and Rock City. We’re definitely going in with Ne-Yo, The-Dream and other writers and producers that have always been a part of her creative process since day one.”

Just as other producers have spoken of the singer, Thiam says Rihanna is “great to work with” and “very hands on with every song that’s being written and produced.” Because of this and the work that they have already created, he goes on to say “It’s already giving me the feel of a timeless album, and right now is her time.”

It is still unclear when the album will be available to fans.
