Earlier today, the generally reliable HitsDailyDouble reported that Rihanna's eighth studio album, ANTI, would be released November 6th. Unfortunately, Billboard has followed up the news with word directly from Rihanna's team, who have denied the rumors.

Speculation is that the album will also not likely be released the following week, which will put in direct competition with the already tight first sales week of Justin Bieber and One Direction. However, the report doesn't rule out the possibility that the album could actually come sooner than expected, so let's hope that's the case.

RiRi revealed both the title and artwork for the project last week in L.A. Think we'll see it before the end of the month, or will we have to wait until after the the Bieber/1D sales battle?
