Rihanna’s Instagram (@badgirlriri) is like a drug. Most days you know better than to look because you should be working, going on a date, driving, but then you get That RiRi Itch and NEEEEEED to see what crazy, cool, vaguely drug-induced thing she’s doing at this very moment that you are not. You just keep coming back for more.
With every status update we all get to live vicariously through the captain of her #Navy, we’re just along for the ride. This morning is no different when Cpt. Ri tweeted the seductive #Sorry, #NotSorry-inspired album art of her upcoming LP titled…well, it could be titled anything!
The photo is of a topless Rihanna sporting that new to-die-for jet-black pixie cut, dark red plum lips, and her chest tattoo with this little riddle (which she’s since deleted, just making it all the more pUzZLiNg): “Find the #ALBUMTITLE in #allBLACKeverything on the #COVER.”
Obscuring the more intimate parts of her bod are hand scrawled Sharpie-esque words that could be the LP’s song titles if the “Diamonds” brazened across her stomach indicates anything. And if you take that “#allBLACKeverything” to heart, it led fans to speculate it’s either “Side Effects” and “Unapologetic,” the only two parts of the cover art that reflect black markings.
But before you decide to get cracking this Sudoku of an album cover, Rihanna has tweeted the official title and release date of the disc:
My NEW album "UNAPOLOGETIC" will be released on NOVEMBER 19th WORLDWIDE #Navy
— Rihanna (@rihanna) October 11, 2012
So, there you have it, album solved. Rihanna’s next album is called Unapologetic. But after all that runaround she gave us this morning to figure it out, maybe she should’ve just titled it The Da Vinci Code.
