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 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.
The cemetery. Think about all the dreams that people had that they took to the cemetery with them the next time you visit. Think about all the lost ideas, all the inventions that never really became anything because people stopped pushing too soon. Think about all the full bucket lists , all the unsaid words. It's just like , either you do what you love , take risks and be fearless in life or you don't , and you play safe. Unfortunately the cost of playing safe is dying with dreams. (Thank you nick cooper for planting these priceless seeds of thought in me, they will turn into trees eventually) #vocalbootcamp
Can't wait to see what you do next Bibi!
