On Rihanna’s newest LOUD tour webisode, The Dream stopped by her tour stop in Newcastle, England and gave an update her upcoming album Talk That Talk.

“I just got here two days ago, and it’s running, and I think we got two smashes – we should have four,” said The Dream.

“The normal goal of somebody like me that’s this intense is to knock everybody off the album that I can possibly do. That doesn’t really mean in a bad way, it’s just how I have to pysche myself up to make a great record,” he added.

The two are known for their musical chemistry, especially from the 2007 number-one hit “Umbrella.” The Dream has also contributed his songwriting chops to Rihanna’s Good Girl Gone Bad and Loud albums.

Rihanna who has been on tour since the summer is currently on the European leg of her tour, but is on pause until further notice. She recently canceled her show in Sweden because she had flu-like symptons

Her first single “We Found Love,” from Talk That Talk is her 11th number one single. The album is set to be released November 21.–Natelege Whaley
