Rihanna will create a concept album based on DreamWorks Animation’s toon “Home,” out in theaters in November. She will also perform new songs in the film.

DWA chief Jeffrey Katzenberg announced the news during the company’s fourth quarter and full 2013 year earnings results on Tuesday.

“Home,” formerly known as “Happy Smekday!,” is based on Adam Rex’s book “The True Meaning of Smekday” and features the voices of Rihanna, Jim Parsons, Jennifer Lopez and Steve Martin.

The film is directed by Tim Johnson, who helmed DreamWorks’ “Antz,” “Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas” and “Over the Hedge.”

DreamWorks Animation will release “Home” on Nov. 26 through 20th Century Fox.

      1. How does she mix in ANY way with children’s material? Funny that most of her fan base seems quite CHILDish so I’m sure it is perfect for them.
      2. Why put her nasal whine on anything else?
      3. You all are pathetic for worshiping a racist, mean punching bag who disrespects her own fans. She doesn’t even care enough to show up on time or put effort in her OWN shows! LOL When will you learn?

      I’m a HUGE Rihanna fan but I’m really scared it’ll bomb like Mariah’s Glitter.
      And it’s a kids movie, I hope the music isn’t childish or anything……

      Let’s pray she releases R8 separately this year.
      She’s in the studio today with The-Dream and he’s not really the person to go to for kids’ music.

      Don’t let me down rih! pls.
