"Good Girl Gone Bad" Norwegian songwriter meets Rihanna

“I was at Rihanna’s concert in Oslo on Sunday. After the concert I met her for the first time face to face. And when I told her who I was, she hugged me and said thank you, wrote Lene Marlin on her Facebook page.
“I started laughing and said thank you to her! It is I who should thank her, and not vice versa. To see my name on the cover of the Rihanna album “Good Girl Gone Bad” was definitely not the worst feeling in the world,” she wrote.
The album “Good Girl Gone Bad” was released in 2007. Lene Marlin wrote the title track to the album together with the Norwegian star producers Tor Erik Hermansen and Mikkel Eriksen Mikkel, who together make up the song-writing company Stargate.

A 31-year-old Norwegian woman is responsible for Rihanna’s hit song “Good Girl Gone Bad,” and finally met the star at Sunday’s concert in Oslo.

“I was at Rihanna’s concert in Oslo on Sunday. After the concert I met her for the first time face to face. And when I told her who I was, she hugged me and said thank you,” wrote Lene Marlin on her Facebook page.

“I started laughing and said thank you to her! It is I who should thank her, and not vice versa. To see my name on the cover of the Rihanna album “Good Girl Gone Bad” was definitely not the worst feeling in the world,” she wrote.

The album “Good Girl Gone Bad” was released in 2007. Lene Marlin wrote the title track to the album together with the Norwegian star producers Tor Erik Hermansen and Mikkel Eriksen Mikkel, who together make up the song-writing company Stargate.

31-year-old Lene Marlin has kept a low profile for the last 10 years, and the last album released by the Tromsø artist was “Twist The Truth” in 2009.
She has recently spent as much time writing songs for others as for herself.
Rihanna is the biggest artist Marlin has worked with. Rihanna is one of the world’s most popular pop artists, and by April 20 of this year had a total of 10 number one singles on the Billboard Hot 100, the most for any female artist since the turn of the millennium. She performed at Oslo’s Spektrum Scene Sunday night, a concert that has sparked overwhelmingly positive reviews.
