The ‘Rapture’ singer is one of many Jamaican talents currently lending their musical prowess to the creation of Rihanna’s highly anticipated 9th studio album.
Koffee’s involvement in the project was revealed by Haiti Babii via a BET interview. California based rapper stated that Rihanna revealed that Koffee was writing for her while both musicians were having a FaceTime session.
Haiti Babii told BET that “I asked her, ‘Ri, what’s up with Koffee? Do you know who that is?’ “And I spelled the name wrong at first, but she was like ‘Koffee? Yeah, that’s one of my writers. You guys definitely have to link. I need something now.”
This revelation comes only weeks after a video surfaced of Rihanna singing along to Koffee’s smash hit ‘Toast’ while visiting her home country of Barbados to attend that leg of Buju Banton’s ‘Long Walk to Freedom’ tour.
Sources have reveal that Koffee isn’t the only Jamaican working on the album.
“Every artist, every producer, every songwriter in Jamaica or of Jamaican descent has been working on Rihanna’s album and has little snippets of publishing or production credits on it. They said they thought her team had eight songs chosen but her A&R is still asking for records, they were looking for one more song,” a source told Rolling Stone.
The likes of Linton White of TJ Records, Stephen ‘Di Genius’ Mcgregor, Chronixx and Kranium were also said to be working on the album.
