Rihanna is planning to release two albums in 2014.

The 'Stay' hitmaker has put out a new record every year since 2009 and although this year she hasn't released another she is hoping to have ''big hits'' in the future.

A source told The Sun newspaper: ''The plan is to put two records out. Rihanna wants big hits on both the albums.''

The Barbadian beauty's last album 'Unapologetic' hit shelves in November 2012 and she's since been busy on her 'Diamonds World Tour', which kicked off in March this year, in support of her seventh studio album.

Rihanna has had a successful year and was recently named the new face of Balmain where she will front the Spring/Summer 2014 collection advertising campaign for the French fashion label and is expected to feature in magazines from January.

The label's creative director, Olivier Rousteing, previously said: ''In front of the camera, she makes you feel like she is the only girl in the world. ''When the woman that inspires you wears your creations, your vision feels complete.''
