Rihanna has been hinting to fans lately that the follow up to 2012’s Unapologetic was on the way, but we didn’t think it could be here before Christmas, or could it?

According to Dash Radio’s DJ Skee, Rihanna made her way out to NYC last week where she debuted ten (10) new records for label executives off her upcoming 8th studio album, which may now see a release date before the years end. DJ Skee says in his broadcast today,

“That project is a lot closer than anyone realized, including her own record label,” claims Skee. “She’s trying to put out a project to capitalize off the fourth quarter.”

DJ Skee also revealed a title of one song, which will go by “I’ve Been Searching for Something to Ignite Me When I’m Alone,” and said it could be a potential single. Rihanna has reportedly been in the studio working with DJ Mustard, Ester Dean, and Ne-Yo, among others.

Aside from this Rihanna news, Skee also revealed that we may be hearing a new Beyonce single early next week as well, called either “7/11″ or “Ring Off,” from the platinum edition of her self-titled album, and described it as an “R&B ratchet record similar towards ‘Partition.’”

Hopefully all this remains true and we see music’s baddest bitches takeover the 4th Quarter of music.

Check out the brief broadcast below.
