Rihanna’s new track “Diamonds” is a lot more slow burning than the club bangers we’re used to, but it gives her beautiful voice a time to shine. The single was produced by Stargate, who also did “Don’t Stop the Music,” “Rude Boy” and “Only Girl (In the World).”
Rihanna sings about a special boy in the chorus: “So shine bright tonight, you and I/ We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky/ Eye to eye, so alive/ We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky.”
Rihanna told MTV this track sounds a lot more laid back and hopeful, which makes sense considering she describes her new album as a “happy and hippy record.” The single will be on her upcoming album, which will reportedly drop in November and MIGHT be called 7 Wonders (loves it).
