Rihanna has already started work on her next album.

The singer only released sixth album, 'Talk That Talk,' in November 2011, but is already coming up with ideas for a seventh record.

She told Capital Radio: ''I'm definitely thinking about the next record. I'm a multi-tasker. Right now we're working on collecting and creating the sound first before we even start working on the lyrical direction or melodies. I kind of have an idea though, and it's very rough right now. So I'm eager to start that.''

The 23-year-old singer - renowned for her controversial videos and her racy image - has already worked with an array of stars on her previous albums including Eminem, Drake and her mentor, Jay Z.

She has also expressed a desire to work with British star Cheryl Cole after hearing her single 'Parachute' and asked their mutual friend - will.i.am from Black Eyed Peas - to introduce them.

Speaking of Cheryl, she said: ''She is awesome, I think she is the most beautiful woman I have ever seen. Like, how do you have a face like that, with hair like that and dimples, and a body like that, that's proportioned like that. And you have a successful career, something about that is not right!''
