As her Instagram and Twitter feeds make clear, Rihanna is extremely photogenic. Complex magazine’s new issue has fully embraced this aspect of the Bajan Pop singer by granting her not one, two or three but seven covers. Why not?

The social media friendly Rih Rih graces the front of seven editions of Complex’s February/March 2013 issue. Why seven covers? Seven albums.

We had to come up with something special for Rihanna’s return to the ‘Plex. And so, to celebrate the release of her seventh album, Unapologetic, which also happens to be her first album to debut at No. 1, we enlisted photographer Zoe McConnell to shoot not just one cover, but seven—one for each of the albums. And assistant editor Soo-Young Kim flew around the world with Rihanna as part of the infamous 777 tour, then sat down with her for a girl-to-girl chat about music, fame, and how to take a perfect selfie. She’s never shined brighter.

The last time Rihanna was on the cover of Complex was back on its June/July 2007 issue. You can read the entire feature story, titled ‘Full Exposure,’ right here.

Check out all the covers, and a few Polaroid style flicks, in the gallery below. Are you going to be that guy, or girl, that tries to track down all seven covers?
