Listen to Rihanna’s brand new single “Diamonds” below. The song was written by Sia and produced by masterminds Stargate and Benny Blanco.
I’ll update the post with my thoughts a little later. Keep your eyes on iTunes for the digital release later today!
Update: It’s different from what I expected and not nearly as ‘instant’ as some of Rihanna’s other songs. You can definitely hear Sia’s influence all over the it, but I have no doubt it will be an international hit. When Rih said the record would be “happy” and “hippy,” she wasn’t kidding. I love it!
