Rihanna teased the cover's reveal online, tweeting, "Wuddup RihannaNavy. Here's a little taste of #LOUD Meet me @ my facebook page for more..."

Rihanna continued teasing her fans by uploading a different parts of the image to her Facebook page; this time, the picture featured the lower right side of her face, including her bright-red, pouty lips.
Finally, about an hour later, she posted the full image on her website, which is a close-up of Rihanna's face, thickly lashed eyes closed, framed by her flame-colored locks.
Earlier this month, RiRi premiered the first single from Loud, the chart-climbing [article id="1647244"]"Only Girl (In the World),"[/article] on Ryan Seacrest's radio show. She also has kept fans updated throughout her recording process.
"I'm done recording the whole album," Rihanna told the fan site Rihanna Daily earlier this month. "I made sure not to let you down with my music! You guys are always defending me, so now you've got some great songs to justify it. I didn't want to go backward and remake [2007's] Good Girl Gone Bad. I wanted the next step in the evolution of Rihanna, and it's perfect for us."
