Rihanna is red hot after the release of her new No. 1 single "We Found Love" and being designated by Esquire as the "Sexiest Woman Alive," and if the cover of her new album is any indication, she has no plans on cooling off.
RiRi released the album art of her hotly anticipated new LP Talk That Talk yesterday (October 11). Ready for her close-up, there are two editions of the cover, both of which feature the 23-year-old pop star gazing intensely into the camera.
On the standard edition, a smokey-eyed Rihanna runs her left hand over her head while licking cherry-red lips — the album title is made to appear as if it was tattooed on her arm. On the deluxe edition, Rihanna appears in black and white with her long hair falling on bare shoulders. Her lips are parted in a circle to release a wisp of white smoke.
Talk That Talk, Rihanna's sixth album, is due November 21. A recently shot video for "We Found Love" is forthcoming.
