The Artist: Rihanna
Why She Should Book Studio Time With Rick Rubin: Say what you want about Rihanna, but the girl has taken a number of risks on her albums over the years. Go back and listen to her early stuff and then her stuff from the last few years and it's pretty clear that she's pushing the envelope and trying new things every chance she gets. We think that approach to making music would be enhanced if Rih-Rih got into the studio with Rubin. Not only would he challenge her to try new things, but he would also be able to suggest new ways of approaching tracks and help Rihanna's star shine even brighter than it already does.
