The Rihanna Navy is anxiously awaiting her upcoming album R8, executive produced by Kanye West. It might surprise you that two of the tracks off that album, "Higher," which she debuted snippets of on Instagram, and "Bitch Better Have My Money," were both penned by the same person.

Her name is Bibi Bourelly, she's 20 years old and she's the coolest person ever.

Not to mention incredibly talented.

The German-born songwriter made a name very quickly after arriving stateside.

I got my city tatted on me so you know it's real.

"I packed my bags in Berlin and moved to LA," Bibi tells Noisey UK. "I said I was gonna do it, I was gonna do music, and I did it. A year later, I have a Rihanna single.”

And she doesn't plan on writing songs for other artists forever.

"I’m an artist not a songwriter. Mentally, at heart," Bibi says. "I don’t write songs to be on a record, I don’t write songs to be sold. I do it to pour my heart out, whether I’m in pain or totally happy."

Basically, we wish we were her.
