Looking uncharacteristically dressed down, Rihanna and her boyfriend Matt Kemp were spotted arriving together at LAX Airport today (October 9).

The inseparable lovebirds are back in sunny Los Angeles after spending a romantic week in in Paris where they did Fashion Week followed by a few days of non-stop shopping.

Meanwhile, in an interview with U.K. radio station 95.8 Capital FM, Rihanna said that she’s played some of her the tracks from her upcoming album for her beau, and while he’s feeling most of the record, it’s the slow jams he loves!

“He really likes, actually, the ballads on the album. Those are his favourite ones,” the singer said. Describing the the vibe of her next effort as “fearless,” “bold” and “colourful,” Rihanna went on to predict that one of the slower numbers could turn out to be a hit.

“The ballads on this album are really special. I didn’t want to just put a bunch of ballads on the album, I actually wanted to keep it minimal with slow records,” she explained. “But there are really two powerful ballads. One is called Straight Up Beautiful and the other one is called California King Bed which is … one of my favourite songs on the album. It’s probably going to be the biggest song on the album. It’s talking about being this close to someone yet feeling so far away, like falling out of love.”

Rihanna also said she often looks to Matt for feedback on her music.

“I always play him songs when I finish them. I’ll bring them back home and ask him what he thinks,” she said. “At the end of the day, we still disagree on some things but for the most part … he loves everything on the album.”

As for whether there’s any tracks Matt doesn’t like? “‘Who’s That Chick,” Riri confessed of the David Guetta-helmed track. “He doesn’t really like that one. “I guess it’s too lightweight pop for him.”
