“I just recently went in to do some stuff for Rihanna, you know,” Ne-Yo exclusively told Capital FM this week. “She’s the hardest working woman in showbiz right now. She’s in the process of putting together a new album as we speak. I got in [the studio] with Stargate and David Guetta and a few other people for that project, so I’m keeping busy man, I’m definitely keeping busy.”
