Rihanna takes a trip down memory lane with Complex. In honor of her seventh album Unapologetic, the “Diamonds” singer graces seven—count ‘em—magazine covers commemorating each era of her musical career.
The pop princess looks innocent as she takes it back to her 2005 debut Music of the Sun, gradually showing more skin as she moves into the Good Girl Gone Bad era. The Barbados beauty recalls a darker time on the Rated R cover, traveling into the future for the fun, yet playful Loud era. She rocks Chanel suspenders, earrings, and lots of attitude for Talk That Talk, ending with her current project Unapologetic, where she poses topless with only Polaroids covering her.

Rihanna received an early Christmas present this year. The pop superstar’s dance smash “We Found Love” has become her biggest hit yet, remaining at No. 1 for an eighth consecutive week on the singles chart.
The Calvin Harris production surpasses 2007’s “Umbrella” and her collaboration with Eminem, “Love the Way You Lie,” which both topped the Billboard Hot 100 for seven weeks straight.
Rihanna is shooting the colorful video for “You Da One,” the second single from her sixth album Talk That Talk, produced by Dr. Luke and written by Ester Dean.
Rihanna and Mary J. Blige storm the albums chart this week. The ladies had shoppers rushing to scoop up their latest releases, putting them in the top 5.
The Barbados pop star’s sixth album Talk That Talk enters at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 with 197,000 copies sold in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It marks her sixth top 10 debut and second biggest week since LOUD opened with 207,000 last November.
Seventeen years after releasing her breakthrough My Life, Mary J. Blige proves she’s still a force to be reckoned with. My Life II… The Journey Continues (Act I), the sequel to the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul’s 1994 album, lands at No. 5 with 156,000.
With less than a week to go before her sixth album drops, Rihanna feeds RIHANNA NAVY appetites for more by unveiling five additional promo pictures for Talk That Talk. The bad girl leans against a graffitied staircase in overalls while smoking a cigarette in one photo, grabbing her crotch in another black-and-white shot. She adds a splash of color to the concrete jungle as she sits on the sidewalk in a bold stance. Marvel at the Barbados babe’s beauty.
On Thursday, Rihanna will perform on the U.S. edition of “The X Factor” and sit down for an interview on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on her release day.
Rihanna has a lock on the charts with her dance smash “We Found Love,” which remains No. 1 for a second week. Now the pop superstar is readying “You Da One,” the follow-up from her forthcoming album Talk That Talk (Nov. 21). Produced by Dr. Luke, the song will premiere Friday and hit iTunes on Sunday at midnight. RiRi smokes a cigarette on the black-and-white cover art.
