Rihanna's New Album Is 'So Great'
Producer Chuck Harmony gives his views on RiRi's new material...

Harmony told Madonna of her time added: "I think Rihanna has captured what her old fans are used to, as well as the growth of an artist.”
“Russian Roulette, to me, is a shining example of her growth and her artistic expression, it is definitely taking her to another level. I think she's a pop icon, so her music should reflect that."
Harmony also said it was a tough choice picking the lead single from Rated R: "I was actually shocked I got the first single 'cause the album is so great," he stated.
Despite working with RiRi on the album, Chuck also revealed he is just as interested in the Barbadian beauty’s new material as the next person, especially the promotional photo of Rihanna in barbed wire.
He said: "It fits in with the song, the way it's unfolding is so genius. Like, 'The wait is ova' (message on her site). I was waiting too.”
Harmony adds: “I wanted to see the cover, I wanted to hear the song. It's one of those records where you just don't know. It's not a faith record. It's one of those thought-provoking records."
We can’t wait either!
