Who’s cooler than Rihanna? Bibi Bourelly, the 20-year old who just wrote Rih’s hit single, “BBHMM,” in under 10 minutes. The Berlin-born singer/songwriter wrote two songs on Rihanna’s much-anticipated album, R8, and, judging from her Insta, already working with the likes of Pharrell, Kanye and Usher. Bibi’s bad gal lyrics and raspy voice rivals that of RiRi’s. You better believe I’m on the edge of my seat to see what she’s got coming next.
