The cover was shot last month by Annie Leibovitz and Rihanna is wearing a red cocktail dress from Valentino’s Resort 2012 collection.
I’ll be sure to scan the inside shots whenever my copy arrives.
In other RiRi news, the singer’s latest single ‘Diamonds’ has gotten off to a pretty rocky start on the Hot 100. After debuting last week at #16, the song fell two spots this week to land at #18. Airplay for ‘Diamonds’ is stagnant and digital download sales fell slightly as well.
On the flipside, changes to the way R&B chart position is calculated has caused ‘Diamonds’ to skyrocket to the top of every R&B chart except airplay, where it sits at a dismal #61.
Despite the song’s obvious challenges, this is Rihanna and with a respectable video I am sure the song will eventually hit the top ten.
