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?
