While Chris Brown is spending late nights in the recording studio, girlfriend Rihanna is also focusing on new music, one month after being brutally attacked by her longtime love.
Her Grammy-winning producer Adonis Shropshire tells Hiphollywood.com that the 21-year-old "Disturbia" singer is easing back into her work.
"You have to remember, she's a kid still," he says. "So with anybody who goes through something in the world, you have to bring yourself out of it, so I guess her refuge is her music."
Shropshire, who has worked with Brown, Gwen Stefani, Mariah Carey and Usher, says fans can expect to hear something similar to Rihanna's current sound.
"She always brings her best whenever she steps onto the stage or the studio," he says. "This is definitely going to be an eclipse of what she's done before. It's going to be hot."
