NEW MUSIC: Rihanna’s “Diamonds”

Posted By Urban News Hour | September 27, 2012

Rihanna dropped her brand new single, “Diamonds,” this morning.  Check out her upbeat feel-good track inside…

Rih’s back on her music grind with a new single and a new album.

In an interview with iHeartRadio during their recent Festival weekend, she described the track as “happy and hippy” and that it’s “different than what people would expect”.

“It’s laid-back but it’s hopeful,” she added. “It’s a record that… gives me such a great feeling when I listen to it. The lyrics are very hopeful and positive, but it’s about love and… a little different to what people would expect, I think.”

And that it is.  In the repetitive upbeat song, produced by Stargate & Benny Blanco, Rihanna talks about her and another shining bright like diamonds in the sky.

By the way, Rih revealed the single cover was shot by “one of her favorite new photographers,” her bestie Melissa.  And it was likely done during one of their many smokeout sessions.

Check out the track below:

You can also check out the lyrics (and the song is there too in case this youtubery gets yanked) she posted over on her Rihanna7 site. Her seventh studio album is on track for a November 2012 release.  You feelin’ it so far?
