Rihanna To Release New Album, Single This Year Followed By A World Tour

Rihanna is back with a new album, less than a year since the release of her three times platinum-selling album TalkThatTalk. The singer who is releasing singles and albums faster than Joan Rivers’ visit to the surgeon, has finished recording her upcoming studio album and will be released before the years comes to an end, the label confirmed on their Twitter page.

Def Jam broke the news on the social networking site, stating that the first single of the new album will be released next week as it makes its radio debut all over the world, while the album will see a launch later on. This makes sense seeing that Rihanna announced earlier this week she is heading back on another world tour, early next year.

DJ Ben, a famous radio DJ also confirmed the news, tweeting to his followers: “@Rihanna will premiere a new single on monday (morning in the US). First track of her forthcoming album, due for release in late november.”

Rihanna’s most recent record managed to take the third spot on the Billboard Hot 200, while the album reached number 1 in more than ten countries worldwide.While her world tour will be named ‘Diamonds’, could this mean the album title will either be the same or something similar? Who knows.
