Rihanna has revealed details of her forthcoming album 'Unapologetic', the Barbadian singer's fifth album in as many years. Unsurprisingly, she used Twitter as her platform to shout about the record, giving fans a sneak peak of the provocative cover art.
It features an image of a topless Rihanna with the words "victory, faith, unapologetic and happy" scrawled in white letters across her body. The first single to be taken from the album - Diamonds - is currently No.1 on the UK singles chart, though further track-listing is yet to be announced (despite the album hitting on November 19, 2012). Though the focus appears to be on the artwork, the album title is worth mentioning, given that Rihanna is rumoured to be back with her former flame Chris Brown. The singer was spotted with Brown - who viciously beat her on the eve of the Grammy Awards in 2009 - at one of Jay Z's homecoming concerts at Brooklyn's Barclays Centre last week. Grainy images also showed the pair dancing together in a New York nightspot before reportedly heading back to the same hotel. Rihanna has made it quite clear that she intends to apologize to nobody with regards to her relationship with Brown (be it friendship or something more) and 'Unapologetic' may well be the album that hammers that point home.
Rihanna appears to have a penchant releasing her records in the lead-up to Christmas- her last three, Rated R, Loud and Talk That Talk - all had November release dates.
