Single Cover: Rihanna – ‘Diamonds’

Diamonds

Rihanna gets high on “Diamonds” on the cover of the first single off her upcoming seventh album. The drug-referencing artwork was shot by her BFF Melissa Forde. The song, written and produced by Stargate, Benny Blanco, and Sia, will make its radio debut at 8 a.m. EST on Wednesday. An hour later, it will go on sale at iTunes Music Stores worldwide.

“You’re not sad or dancing. You’re happy and hippie. It’s laid-back, but it’s hopeful,” the pop superstar told Elvis Duran during her visit to the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas. “It gives me such a great feeling when I listen to it. The lyrics are very hopeful and positive, but it’s about love and the gears are a little different from what people would expect. I’m excited to surprise them sonically.”

Rihanna will launch her “Diamonds World Tour” on March 8 in the U.S. Tickets are on sale now.

    SHE SURPRISES ME EVERY TIME. WHILE I APPRECIATE OTHER ARTIST’S EFFORTS, THEY COULD LEARN SOME THINGS FROM RIHANNA. (KEEP IT NEW, KEEP IT FRESH. SEXY AND ORIGINAL.)

    @Education is a terrible thing to waste, It’s called symbolism. Even though the drugs aren’t there, it’s implied that the diamonds are drugs.

    I like the cover. It suits her. LOL! As much as I think she’s a little overexposed I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t excited to hear the song. I’m sure it will be dope.

    @Truth, why, out of all people, do you have to single Beyoncé out? That is unnecessary.

    This would’ve been cute as an Instagram picture, not so much for a single cover. I like the idea, though. Since everyone’s so big on smoking these days it’ll attract the eye. I just wish she would put a little more time and effort into some dope cover art. I am here for the music, though. If the track is hot, I couldn’t give a shit about the it.
