Rihanna Has A New Single Out

It’s called “Diamonds.” It’s the first single from her new album, which is going to be released in November. The cover for the single, as you can see, shows Rihanna rolling a joint of diamonds. Did I miss anything?

Oh, here’s the actual song:

Weird, right? And by “weird,” I obviously mean “I don’t hate it that much,” which is a very unusual reaction for me to have to a Rihanna song. The only song of hers that I’ve even halfway sort of been able to tolerate was “Unfaithful,” and that’s only because my favorite drag queen did a really great performance of it. I just don’t get her appeal musically, like, at all, and while I don’t think I ever will, I do have to admit that this new song isn’t completely awful. Like, I wouldn’t turn it off if it came on the radio probably.

But how do you guys feel about it?
