Background

Rihanna began "working on the new sound" for her seventh studio album in March 2012, even though she had not yet begun recording. [1] On September 12, 2012, Def Jam France announced via Twitter that Rihanna would release a new single the upcoming week while her seventh studio album was scheduled to be released in November 2012. However, the tweet was shortly deleted and replaced with another clarifying that "more information will be made available tomorrow, Thursday, September 13". [2] Via her official Twitter account, Rihanna posted series of "teasing" tweets announcing her seventh studio album. [3]
