Behind the Video: Rihanna – ‘Diamonds’

Rihanna sets the screen ablaze in the video for “Diamonds.” The sexy singer shot the apocalyptic clip last month in downtown Los Angeles with director Anthony Mandler. In the behind-the-scenes footage (via MTV News), she is seen walking out of her trailer, floating in a pool of water, and standing amongst destruction and fire as a riot breaks out.

The full video will premiere Thursday at 6:50 p.m. EST on MTV.

“Diamonds” is the first single off Rihanna’s seventh album Unapologetic, due November 19.
