Never one to shy away from the risque, Rihanna appears naked the cover of her seventh studio album, Unapologetic. Releasing the album title and artwork today on her Twitter account, the pop singer sports black lipstick to match her short, black hair and exposes her latest tattoo, a tribute to her late grandmother, across her chest.
Covered in words like ‘Diamonds’, ‘Victory’ and ‘Fun’, I can only assume that this text doubles as the track listing for Unapologetic. While all the text appears in white, the words ‘Side Effects’ stand out in black lettering along the inside of Rihanna’s right arm.
Tweeting the release date of November 19 for the new disc, Rihanna also said “The side effects of #R7 are starting to kick in, less than an hour!”. Could the song be bolded because it’s the next single? Maybe it’s the seventh song on her seventh album? Knowing Rihanna, who has released three albums in the past three years, we won’t have to wait too long to find out.
