Rihanna debut her highly anticipated new single “Diamonds” today, off her upcoming album due in stores this November.
The unstoppable Bajan pop beauty currently holds 11 number one singles under her belt. This could be her 12th number one. The catchy single was written by Australian songwriter Sia.
“Palms rise to the universe/ As we, moonshine and molly/ Feel the warmth, we’ll never die/ We’re like diamonds in the sky,” Rihanna sings.
During an interview with Elvis Duran last weekend in Las Vegas, Rihanna describes the single as “happy and hippie.”
“You’re not sad or dancing. You’re happy and hippie. It’s laid-back, but it’s hopeful,” Rihanna said about the single. “It gives me such a great feeling when I listen to it. The lyrics are very hopeful and positive, but it’s about love and the gears are a little different from what people would expect. I’m excited to surprise them sonically.”
The new single was produced by Stargate, Benny Blanco, and Sia.
