Rihanna has recruited The-Dream for her upcoming eighth studio album.

The hitmaker – born Terius Nash – previously teamed up with the artist on hit singles “Umbrella,” “Hard (featuring Jeezy)” and “Rockstar 101.”

Some of The-Dream’s recent songwriting and production credits are “XO” (performed by Beyonce), “Skirt” (performed by Kylie Minogue), “Crazy Girl” (performed by Rita Ora), and “Skeletons” (performed by Tulisa).

He also confirmed placements on the next albums by Mariah Carey [Island Def Jam Recordings], Katharine McPhee [Columbia Records], Nicole Scherzinger [RCA Records] and Scotty Rebel [Motown Records].

Meanwhile, the follow-up to 2012’s “Unapologetic” is expected to be released later this year via Universal Music / SRP / Island Def Jam Recordings.

In addition to The-Dream, the “What Now” star also enlisted Da Internz (Tinashe, Candice Glover), Naughty Boy (Labrinth, Sam Smith), DJ Mustard (will.i.am, Trey Songz), Detail (Mario, Lil Wayne), and Alex Da Kid (Eminem, Cheryl Cole).
