Singer Rihanna is stepping into the world of animation by voicing a character in the upcoming film Home and recording a concept album based on the movie.

The We Found Love hitmaker will star as Gratuity 'Tip' Tucci in the family film, which is based on Adam Rex's 2007 children's book, The True Meaning of Smekday.

Rihanna will also provide the music for the project. She is currently working on the album and her new songs will be featured in the film.

Home, which also stars Jim Parsons, Jennifer Lopez and Steve Martin, is set to hit theatres in the U.S. in November (14).
