Rihanna goes nude on new album

2012-10-12 12:17
Los Angeles - Rihanna has named her new album Unapologetic and is due to be released on 19 November.

The singer unveiled the cover of her seventh full length album on Twitter, which features her posing topless.

She took to her Twitter page saying: "My NEW album "UNAPOLOGETIC" will be released on NOVEMBER 19th WORLDWIDE #Navy (sic)."

Covering the singer's modesty are a number of handwritten words, including "happy", "fearless", "chalice", "diamonds" and "censored." Over her face in white writing is the word "love".

Album's title very fitting

The singer's latest tattoo of the Egyptian goddess Isis, on her midriff, is also visible. She has previously said she got the inking in tribute to her grandmother, Clara "Dolly" Braithwaite, who passed away earlier this year.

Rihanna recently hit number one in the UK single chart with her latest single Diamonds, which was co-written by Titanium singer Sia. It is rumoured that her new album has tracks produced by Ne-Yo, David Guetta, Fazer and up-and-coming UK music producers Burns and Nicky Romero.

The album's title is also fitting with Rihanna's personal life, as she has recently attracted criticism for reconciling with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, who was convicted of assaulting her in 2009.
