Rhianna may have spent the earlier half of the evening in the recording studio but she wasn't about to not go clubbing of an evening.

The leggy singer decided to show off her almost perfect figure in a sheer top and denim cut offs as she headed out in LA.

The 24-year-old music superstar looked amazing in the black outfit, which was accesorised with flaming red nails and some chunky bling.

It was a change from earlier in the week as the star had headed out on a rather casual ensemble although she kept to the red theme with lashings of bright lipstick, a black leather jacket and baggy trousers, Rihanna cut an imposing figure to match her seemingly new found physique.

The singer refused to crack a smile as she passed photographers – not that it mattered, as all eyes were on her flat and toned stomach.

A source told gossip site HollywoodLife: 'She is hitting the studio real hard these days, but talks
to Chris every step of the way.

'As soon as she finishes up with this album, they will be out. She gotta focus and get that album together and stay paid.

'She's tied up and busy with the
album, but she makes time for Chris late nights. She did one night
before – I think, like, Tuesday. I'm not sure but I know she saw him
this week.'

She is hard at work on her seventh studio album Unapologetic.

A source told Heat that the busy singer doesn't mind her jet-setting lifestyle:
'Rihanna loves travelling and has never been bothered by jet lag –
because she doesn't care about sleep.'

However, despite her hectic schedule she has managed to find time to hit the gym and, of course, let her hair down at a nightclub.
