Rihanna to Drop Seventh Studio Album in November

There’s no slowing down Rihanna! She’s about to drop her seventh studio album in November, with a new single coming perhaps as early as next week, according to a report by Idolator, which discovered the details by way of an accidental leak from RiRi’s French record label.

Def Jam France evidently tweeted the news about the ‘We Found Love’ singer’s latest project prematurely. When somebody at the label realized they weren’t supposed to be publishing that information yet, the tweet was deleted, though it has been preserved for eternity in the form of a screenshot. That tweet was replaced with this one, which translates as, “New announcement this Thursday about Rihanna on our account.”

Previous reports suggested RiRi was working with Swedish House Mafia and with Calvin Harris associate Burns on the record.

If true, this will be the fourth straight year she has unleashed a new set just before Thanksgiving. Forget those lazy performers who take three years between albums; Rihanna is prolific. In November 2009, she released ‘Rated R,’ followed in successive years by ‘Loud’ and ‘Talk That Talk.’

Amazingly, none of those records charted higher than No. 3, probably because November is typically the busiest month of the year when it comes to new album releases, so competition is fierce. A No. 1 album is one of the few accomplishments RiRi has yet to accomplish in her career. Maybe her seventh studio effort will be the one that finally takes her to the top.
