If the charts are a hopeless place, Rihanna is planning a serious rescue mission. The Bajan chanteuse’s winning streak of releasing a platinum album every November is set to continue for a fourth consecutive year: Ri is reportedly readying the release of her her seventh (!) studio album this November, with a new single due out as soon as this Monday, September 17. (This is good news for those of us who are sick of having Flo Rida‘s “Whistle” stuck in our heads all the time.)
According to a tweet from the French arm of her label, Def Jam, the new single is due out Monday, with the album set for a November release. That tweet has since been deleted, and replaced with the following tweet clarifying that more information will be made available tomorrow, Thursday, September 13:
Nouvelle annonce ce jeudi à propos de Rihanna sur notre compte.

Although our French is rusty, we’re pretty sure a rough translation of that is, “Whoops, sorry guys! We totally dropped the ball releasing that info two days early, but just hold your breath until Thursday and then Rihanna can come rule the charts once more.” Or something.
