Listen: Rihanna’s ‘Diamonds’

Rihanna has returned from a brief hiatus with “Diamonds,” her new single from her forthcoming seventh album. Produced by produced by Benny Blanco and Norwegian hitmakers Stargate, I like this cut, it’s simple, sweet, catchy and about love.

“‘Diamonds’ is a special song! It’s very close to my heart! It’s uplifting and a story that everyone deserves to experience. The sound of it is unlike anything I’ve done or heard, and that itself is pretty exciting,” she told Jay-Z’s Life + Times.
