NEW MUSIC: Rihanna's "Diamonds"

Rihanna dropped her brand new single, "Diamonds," this morning.  Check out her upbeat feel-good track inside...

Rih's back on her music grind with a new single and a new album.

In an interview with iHeartRadio during their recent Festival weekend, she described the track as "happy and hippy" and that it's "different than what people would expect".

"It's laid-back but it's hopeful," she added. "It's a record that... gives me such a great feeling when I listen to it. The lyrics are very hopeful and positive, but it's about love and... a little different to what people would expect, I think."

And that it is.  In the repetitive upbeat song, produced by Stargate & Benny Blanco, Rihanna talks about her and another shining bright like diamonds in the sky.

By the way, Rih revealed the single cover was shot by "one of her favorite new photographers," her bestie Melissa.  And it was likely done during one of their many smokeout sessions. 

Check out the track below:

 

You can also check out the lyrics (and the song is there too in case this youtubery gets yanked) she posted over on her Rihanna7 site. Her seventh studio album is on track for a November 2012 release.  You feelin' it so far?

 

BONUS: Rih posted a viddy expressing her excitement about the "Diamonds" single:

I like the song, but she

I like the song, but she needs to take a break. Her true fans will always stay fans of her. Why do she continue to put out albums every single year? Seems she's afraid that people will forget her.

Nothing to go crazy about, i

Nothing to go crazy about, i wasn't expecting much. She needs to disappear for a few years, she can only go so far, n i believe its reaching that time...her delusional stans will of course run along and purchase this nonsense just like they always do smh..when will the masses wake up? when? smoke & mirrors.... that is all.

Ummm not really feeling this

Ummm not really feeling this one....but hey I wasn't feeling "Where Have You Been" but then after my bestie forced it down my throat 5 million times I found myself buying it off of iTunes....but then again I was the 1st one to like, "We Found Love" on my 1st go round of hearing it so you never know....I just know at 1st listen I was not really feeling it! DAMN 7 albums....Lord Have Mercy is she trying to get out of a contract or something hasn't she only been out for like 5yrs now??!!

I'd already figured that I

I'd already figured that I wouldn't dig the song just off the wack title alone and, sure enough, I'm NOT digging the song. It sounds so redundent of her other songs and it's wack, but STILL got much love for her.

Rihanna sounds like Willow Smith in this song. Especially in the chorus part, "Shine bright like a diamond".

You can tell the song was

You can tell the song was inspired by Stevie Nicks song "Stand Back". You can use powerful imagery in a video with this song and It'll be a #1 hit maybe. Her stans will eat this up and listen to it 95 times in a row until their family members all believe they're suffering from psychosis. It's different.

i don't understand why she had to swear "right fucking now". I don't understand why she got so tacky. Anyway, i like the song.

I wouldn't buy it, but i'd

I wouldn't buy it, but i'd tap my foot to it in the car. I think that would've sounded better in an R&B version, but whatever.

I like that Rihanna

I like that Rihanna experiments with her sound. I'm not sure how this will do on the charts, but it's a bold single choice. It's her take on the Florence+The Machine & Lana Del Rey sound.

I will have to listen to it

I will have to listen to it when I get home....the girl is gorge. Is it reasonable to think that an artist can release an album every 2 years and still thrive?
