Jamar McNaughton aka CHRONIXX was rumored to have been one of the musicians enlisted by the pop star to work on her highly anticipated ninth album and now it has been confirmed that they indeed have been collaborating but only “producing and conceptualizing”.
Asked what Chronixx could say about his time with Rihanna, he responded:
No, I can’t. Primarily because it was never us working together. You know what I mean? It was more like general creative work, producing and conceptualizing. It was never like we sat down and wrote a song line for line together. There’s not really much to talk about. I don’t really want to publicize that because I haven’t really worked with her. Most of the people who have made music with Rihanna and have worked with her, it has been in a similar way. Working with something like Rihanna, with that level of pop culture, popularity, it’s always going to be different.
The currently untitled record – thought to have been influenced by the reggae sound – will be the Barbadian singer, fashion designer and actress’s first since 2016’s Anti.
