Rihanna to Make Concept Album for Upcoming Animated Movie
Posted on Feb 25, 2014 by

Rihanna is plotting her next blockbuster. She will create a concept album based on the animated film “Home”.

DreamWorks Animation chief Jeffrey Katzenberg announced the news during the company’s earnings conference on Tuesday, reports Variety. She will also perform new songs in the movie.

“Home”, formerly known as “Happy Smekday!”, is based on Adam Rex’s award-winning book “The True Meaning of Smekday”. Rihanna will play one of the lead characters opposite “Big Bang Theory” star Jim Parsons. Jennifer Lopez and Steve Martin also lend their voices.

In the film, friendly aliens invade Earth to escape their mortal enemy. When one of their own accidentally reveals their whereabouts, he has to flee with a teenage girl, taking a road trip across a postapocalyptic America. Along the way, he learns what it means to be human.

Directed by Tim Johnson (Antz, Over the Hedge), Home will hit theaters on November 26.

This will mark Rihanna’s first musical endeavor since 2012′s platinum-selling album “Unapologetic”.

      OMG !!! does that mean she will be releasing her 8th studio album in 2015 or 2016 ?

      i hate that shes making a soundtrack, i think its cheesy for her edgy personality. also i remember Rih said she doesn’t want to be in a musical because she already a singer.

        I thought we might be getting new music for her 8th album but I guess we will get a soundtrack Home Cd. I am a bit disappointed too and really surprised. I don’t think it is cheesy but an unusaual choice for Robyn that’s for sure. I guess no world tour either for this CD. I hope the Concept album does super well. I support Rih in whatever she wants to do with her career. I just wish she would start to write more of the songs she sings.

      @disqus_4vLfgGwggC:disqus She said that she wouldn’t do a musical movie or even sings in a movie, not a soundtrack or a song for a movie.

      But still support Rih, always.
