Rihanna is sticking with familiar territory for her new album, 'Talk That Talk,' due Nov. 21. The Bajan songstress has collaborated with lauded singer-songwriter The-Dream for tracks that will appear on her forthcoming effort.

During her Loud tour stop overseas in Newcastle, England, The-Dream paid a visit to see his longtime studio partner in action. As he was immersed in her fandom, the man who crafted 'Umbrella' and 'Hard' for Ri spoke about what's to come on 'Talk That Talk.'

'I think we got two smashes," The-Dream reveals. "We should have four. The normal goal of somebody like me, that's this intense, is to knock everybody off the album that i could possibly do. That doesn't really mean in a bad way. It's just how i have to psyche myself up..."

The-Dream didn't go into song titles or sounds on the record, but chances are with his resume the final product will be a banger.

As for her album cover, Rihanna debuted two different looks for the 'Talk That Talk' LP in October and had some decision-making to do regarding what would be the final artwork. The 23-year-old has chosen what fans will see when they pick up for her seventh album, with the sultry singer posing with her hand on her forehead, red lipstick and her tongue flashing out as her best choice.
