Rihanna rolls her blunts with diamonds instead of weed! Well, maybe not all the time, but that’s what she’s doing on the cool cover art for her new single “Diamonds”.
Along with the smokey single cover, ratchet RiRi also dropped an official press release detailing everything you need to know about her new music (don’t call it a “return” o a “comeback”, coz it sure as hell ain’t one).
Here’s the important part.
“Diamonds” will make its global premiere on Wednesday, September 26th with an 8:00am launch at radio stations worldwide. An hour later, at 9:00am EST, “Diamonds” will go up for sale at iTunes Music Stores worldwide. Just weeks ago, Live Nation announced the Rihanna Diamonds World Tour 2013.
“Diamonds” is the first single from Rihanna’s upcoming seventh studio album on Island Def Jam, details to be announced in the weeks and months ahead. “Diamonds” was produced by Norwegian hitmakers Stargate, whose track record of worldwide Top 10 hits with Rihanna stretches back to 2006′s “Unfaithful,” and includes “Don’t Stop the Music,” “Take A Bow,” “Rude Boy,” “Only Girl (In the World),” and “What’s My Name” (featuring Drake), and “Talk That Talk.”
Since when was “Talk That Talk” a top 10 hit anywhere? Oh, my bad: it was top 10 in South Korea and Israel. Forgive me.
According to a recent interview Rihanna gave, “Diamonds” is “laid back” and “hopeful”, and a “happy and hippie record.”
Sounds pretty flawless. Right? But will it be able to snatch the wig of “Die Young” and “Your Body”?
