Los Angeles - Rihanna has completed work on her new album.

The Diamonds hitmaker confirmed late Sunday night that Unapologetic has been completed, two weeks ahead of its release on 19 November, and she is looking forward to some time off to relax.

She took to her Twitter-page to share the news saying: "Man my album is complete, and I need a fucking drink and a roll up! It was quite the journey, but it's all part of our story! #UNAPOLOGETIC. (sic)"

The news comes after the 24-year-old star recently announced she will play seven gigs in seven cities to promote her seventh studio album.

Fans to join her entourage

The 777 tour will kick off in London on 14 November before stopping in Paris, Toronto, Berlin, Paris, Stockholm and New York.

Rihanna will travel on a special Boeing 777 jumbo jet for the shows. According to insiders the plane is able to carry 200 people, including 150 journalists from 82 countries and a lucky group of Rihanna's fans, who will join her and her entourage on the whistle-stop tour, which concludes on 19 November.

Rihanna has also already ordered a champagne-filled rider for the plane and promised fans she will perform mid-air.

"Rihanna has asked for hundreds of bottles of $500 Armand de Brignac champagne. She has pledged to get on the loudspeaker during the trip and perform on the plane," a source revealed.
