Listen: Rihanna’s new single “Diamonds”

Here’s the thing, I do love Rihanna, I have for years but she’s so damn overexposed, it’s getting to the point where girlfriend is getting on my nerves! She’s already releasing a new album in November (title TBD), she’s been dropping one every year since 2009! Yet it turns out, I actually like her new single “Diamonds” a lot, a totally refreshing change from her club bangers (currently way overplayed on the radio), a switch-up that was long overdue. The track was produced by Benny Blanco and Stargate, and written by Sia (one of my faves), it’s a gorgeous song that’s bound to be a huge hit. The artwork is also stunning, it reminds me of Rated R a bit, and who can pass up a joint made of diamonds?!
