West told Ryan Seacrest at the 2015 Grammys that he was teaming up with Rihanna to executive produce her forthcoming album, Billboard reported.

“I played her my album,” he told Seacrest. “And I said, ‘I got a few songs with Paul McCartney. She couldn’t get past the record. She had to have it on her album.” West produced two of ANTI’s singles- “FourFiveSeconds” and “B**ch Better Have My Money.” As we know, West is planning on releasing his seventh studio album, SWISH, in February. He has teased fans with songs of his own, such as “Facts,” “Real Friends” and “No More Parties in L.A.”

Whenever ANTI is released, it should correspond with Rihanna’s ANTI World Tour, slated to begin on February 26 in San Diego, Calif. We can’t wait to hear both albums when they finally make their debuts.
