Yesterday, Rihanna revealed the covers for her upcoming album ‘Talk That Talk.’ Yes, you read that right — covers, as in “more than one.” Because when you’re one of the most prolific hitmakers in recent history and you’re about to release one of the most highly anticipated records of the year, you don’t have to play by everyone else’s rules.

We’ve all seen plenty of this star lately with her singles surpassing Madonna’s on the charts and the release of her nude photos for Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive, but these covers finally show her embracing a new-found confidence.

The standard edition of ‘Talk That Talk’ comes with a full-color cover that shows Rihanna resting her hand on her forehead as she leans toward the camera, licking her lips. In the upper left corner, the cover is emblazoned with a large ‘R’ fashioned from newspaper cutouts, while the album title is adorned on Rihanna’s arm with a simple tattoo.

Extras haven’t been announced for the deluxe edition of ‘Talk That Talk,’ but fans who pony up for it will be treated to a black-and-white cover image of Rihanna sultrily exhaling smoke while staring directly at the camera, highlighted curls spilling over her bare shoulders.

The album, which is scheduled for a November 18 release, has already spawned a hit single, the Calvin Harris production ‘We Found Love.’ Less than a month after its release, the track is already rising through the top 10 of Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.
