Kanye West says he is ‘executive producing’ Rihanna’s new album

The rapper also claims that Rihanna's album is 'coming soon'

Kanye West has revealed that he is working with Rihanna on her next album.

The pair recently teamed up alongside Paul McCartney for the new single ‘Fourfiveseconds’, but now West will also helm the entire project in the role of ‘executive producer’.

The two artists performed ‘Fourfiveseconds’ at the 2015 Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday (February 8) with Sir Paul McCartney, who also plays acoustic guitar on the track.

Before the event, West shared the news on the red carpet to Time, also stating that the LP is “coming soon”.

Last night’s Grammys ceremony also saw West attempting to interrupt Beck during his Album of the Year acceptance speech. The rapper later claimed that, although the stunt was a joke, Beyoncé was in his opinion more deserving of the accolade.

Kanye West and Paul McCartney will be among the stars to appear on ‘Saturday Night Live’ to celebrate the US comedy sketch show’s 40th anniversary. The special edition takes place on February 14 and will also feature Justin Timberlake and Paul Simon, as well as former cast members Eddie Murphy, Will Ferrell and Chris Rock, plus actors Robert De Niro, Jack Nicholson and Tom Hanks, among others.

Meanwhile, it was reported that McCartney is not co-producing the entirety of Kanye West’s new album, despite reports claiming that he will work alongside the rapper on a whole record.

Kanye West’s new album, the follow-up to 2013’s ‘Yeezus’, is also expected during 2015.
