Say what you want about Rihanna, but she knows how to create buzz. Today, all she does is tweet a picture of a huge soundboard with the caption #R8 and the world goes crazy. R meaning Rihanna and 8 meaning her eighth studio album for those that are not keeping track.You can see it for yourself on Rihanna's Twitter page. I would expect a fall release by the timing of this announcement but we will see.

She could have just announced it with a press release, but then she wouldn't get all this buzz.
