Rihanna Inks Deal with Sony/ATV

That new Rihanna album might actually be on its way. 

On Monday, it was announced Rih just signed a worldwide deal with Sony/ATV, covering future works, plus her entire songwriting catalog…

Including her Hot 100 top 10s “Love on the Brain” and “Needed Me,” as well as her No. 1s “Rude Boy” and “Work,” her multi-platinum collaboration with Drake.

The Barbados-native - and the world’s richest female musician - who was previously signed to Warner Chappell, is the first superstar to follow executive Jon Platt to Sony/ATV since he took over as chairman/CEO back in April. 

And while Rihanna hasn't released any music since lending a verse to N.E.R.D.'s "Lemon" last year - despite the Navy’s pleas…

The new agreement has many speculating the “Anti” follow-up she's teased for years... soon come.
