Billboard reports that Rihanna has announced her brand new album, which will be called Unapologetic. You can see the cover art below.
The album will be released on November 19. It is her seventh overall. She made the announcement on Twitter with the cover art and then giving the title and date. She tweeted: "Find the #albumtitle in #allBLACKeverything on the #cover" and posted a photo with the hashtag #SideEffects"
She then deleted those tweets and later wrote: "My new album 'Unapologetic' will be released on November 19 worldwide." She then retweeted fan reactions to the artwork and title.
"Side Effects", along with other words in white on her topless body ("Diamonds", "Love", "Chalice", "Fearless" and more) may be song titles, but a track list has not been announced. Her first single "Diamonds" was already released and has hit #1 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart this week, while climbing 29-23 on Pop Songs and falling 16-18 on the Billboard Hot 100.
She's also covered in words like "Victory", "Fun" and "Faith" on the cover with the word "Love" on her face.
Rihanna has released three albums in the past three Novembers: Rated R in 2009, Loud in 2010 and Talk That talk last year.
On Tuesday, it was announced that she has four American Music Awards nominations. She's against Justin Bieber, Drake, Maroon 5 and Katy Perry for Artist of the Year and is also nominated for Favorite Female Artist - Pop/Rock, Favorite Female Artist - Soul/R&B, and Favorite Album - Soul/R&B for Talk That Talk.
