R&B star Rihanna has gone topless for the cover of her upcoming album Unapologetic.

The singer is snapped posing with one arm behind her head and her other covering her left breast, while her right boob is covered by a black marker pen scribble bearing the project's title.

The image features words like 'victory', 'faith', 'happy', 'fearless', 'love' scrawled all over her face and body, while it also includes her latest tattoo, a large inking of the ancient Egyptian goddess Isis - in honour of her late grandmother, just below her breasts.

Unapologetic, which is due for release in November, will be her seventh studio album.

Rihanna isn't the only star getting naked for a new release - Christina Aguilera has posed topless for the cover of her new album Lotus, preserving her modesty with her flowing hair.

In the shot, the star stands in the middle of a lotus flower, while a bright light covers her lower half. The singer debuted the cover art on Twitter last week.
