Kanye West Found the Next Rihanna?

Pia Mia PerezKanye West thinks he has found the next Rihanna.

The "Blood On The Leaves" singer is reportedly working in the studio with "hip" 17-year-old singer Pia Mia Perez and he is hoping to transform her into a star like the "Diamonds" hitmaker who has achieved global chart success.

"Kanye is producing some tracks for her and he's quite involved. He believes she could be the next Rihanna. [He] thinks she's young, fresh and hip - totally his target audience. He's been consulting her on a lot of his creative projects, including the Kanye x APC collection," a source said.

Pia - who is best friends with Kylie Jenner - first stepped into the spotlight last year when a video of her singing Drake's "Hold On We're Going Home" in front of the Canadian rapper and Kanye at a dinner party hosted by Kylie's family, including Kanye's fiancee Kim Kardashian, went viral on the internet.

It's claimed Pia - who signed a deal with Interscope Records in February - is also becoming Kanye's most trusted advisor, which is rumored to have annoyed Kim. "Kanye's creative team was pretty shocked that he would use a teenager as his confidante. And Kim was actually kind of agitated by it, because he doesn't usually want her input on design stuff. She was a little jealous," the source added.
