There is no one that grinds harder than Rihanna. It’s hard to believe but Rihanna is already ready to release ANOTHER new album and this morning, debuted a brand new single. Diamonds received worldwide radio release this morning at 8am EST and had fans alike rushing to their radio dials to hear the Stargate produced track.
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
Shine bright like a diamond
The singer had previously referred to the track as “happy and hippy.” I personally, find the track to feel a little Lana Del Rey with a Rihanna twist. The hook and post-chorus are catchy but kind of sound like Del Rey’s National Anthem, no? The track was penned by Sia and and I can definitely hear that influence in the single as well. Overall, I think that Rihanna will find success in the song. I like that she didn’t just stick to her dancefloor formula but took a risk with a more midtempo track.
