As Rihanna prepares for the release of her new album, LOUD!, she has raised some eyebrows with a revealing new cover. The cover to her new disc's first single will feature the songstress nude, albeit partially covered. She also recently spoke to supporters through a fansite, saying she won't be letting them down with her new material.
As mentioned, Rihanna has decided to disrobe for her latest single "Only Girl (In the World)." The cover art features the singer sitting in a field nude, holding on to a red dress. Her short haircut is gone as she sports long, red hair. The single will be released in late September with her next album, LOUD! following in November. The image (pictured) was obtained by Rap-Up.
During the aforementioned fan-chat, Rihanna shared that she hopes fans will be pleased with her progression.
"I made sure not to let you down with my music! You guys are always defending me, so now you've got some great songs to justify it. I didn't want to go backward and remake [2007's] Good Girl Gone Bad. I wanted the next step in the evolution of Rihanna, and it's perfect for us."
Aside from this, Rihanna has filmed an ad for her first fragrance, "Reb'l Fleur," according to The New York Post.
