The 'We Found Love' singer says she has a "rough idea" of what she wants her next studio outing to sound like.

Rihanna has revealed she is "definitely" getting ready to start working on her next album and says she has already come up with a rough idea for the record's direction.

The 'You Da One' singer says she can't wait to start working properly on her seventh studio album, following her huge success with 2011 album 'Talk That Talk.

"I'm definitely thinking about the next record. I'm a multi-tasker so," Rihanna told Capital FM's showbiz reporter Kevin Hughes last night (29th March). "Right now we're working on collecting and creating the sound first before we even start working on the lyrical direction or melodies.

"I kind of have an idea though, and it's very rough right now," Rihanna teased. "So I'm eager to start that."

The 'We Found Love' star also promised that before she starts working full out on her new album she has something fashion-related in the works first.

She added: "Before that we'll be getting into more fashion stuff and, I can't really talk about it, but my fans will be very happy, especially my British fans."

Rihanna's 'Take Care' collaborator Drake recently said he is still hoping for the opportunity to work on a full album with the singer at some point in the future.
