The Billboard article also provides details of Rihanna's collaboration with Drake.  The two team up on a remix of "What's My Name," Rihanna's next single, which will appear as a bonus track on Loud.

Rihanna says, "Drake is the hottest rapper out right now and we've always been trying to work together.  He's the only person I thought could really understand the melody of the song, and the minute he heard it, he said, 'I know exactly what I'm going to do. I love it.'  And he did it, like, three days later."

Meanwhile, Rihanna talked to Entertainment Tonight about her plans to attend her good friend Katy Perry's wedding, which will reportedly take place later this month.  Rihanna confirms Perry and Russell Brand will wed in India, and tells ET, "I am excited about that because I have never been there.  I'm just so excited to see her get married.  I am excited to see her dress. She won't tell me what it is!" 

Rihanna says she and Perry hope to get together in a studio soon for some kind of collaboration, either for Rihanna's album, or for a re-release of Perry's Teenage Dream.
