"She's definitely trying to move forward," Adonis said to HipHollywood.com of the "Umbrella" singer heading back into the studio. "She's really just easing back into it," he says. "Just a couple of ideas here and there over the last couple of weeks. It's coming out good."
Rihanna's beau, Chris Brown, faced a judge on two felony charges last week, stemming from an alleged altercation that left the pop starlet bloodied and bruised. "She's doing OK -- I mean, of course with the situation, she's all right," Adonis revealed. "You have to remember, she's still a kid," Shropshire continued of Rihanna. "With anybody in the world that goes through something, you have to bring yourself out of it. So I guess her refuge is her music, of course, as it should be."
The producer also confirms that Rihanna's next project will take a similar direction to "Good Girl Gone Bad" -- and she isn't letting the controversy with Brown affect her work. "She's really going in the same direction -- just an evolution of what she already is, you know: super pop-y." He added, "She always brings her best efforts every time she steps into the stage or the studio -- [her next project] will eclipse what she's done before, so it's going to be hot."
