Rihanna's Rocking Her Roots

 

23 February 2006

Barbados-born beauty Rihanna says that she plans to get back to her Carribean roots for her next album that she is currently putting the finishing touches on now. The 17-year-old songtress rocked the Take 40 singles charts with her dance smash, 'Pon De Replay' and then the more low-key 'If It's Lovin' That You Want' wants to inject her new music with the cool, grinding beats of Bahamian music as well as a smattering of her new passion - rock music.

"Growing up in Barbados, I wasn't exposed to a lot of rock music," says Rihanna. "We really love reggae and Soca music and hip-hop. But when I moved to the United States last year, I was exposed to a lot of different types of music, rock being one of them, and I fell in love with it. [Now] I love rock music."
