Rihanna Premieres “Diamonds” Music Video
“Diamonds” is a song recorded by Barbadian recording artist Rihanna for her upcoming seventh studio album Unapologetic (2012). It was written by Sia Furler in collaboration with Benjamin “Benny Blanco” Levin, Mikkel S. Eriksen and Tor Erik Hermansen. It was produced by Blanco, as well as Eriksen and Hermansen under their production name StarGate. “Diamonds” premiered on September 26, 2012, during the Elvis Duran and the Morning Show and was released the following day. Def Jam Recordings solicited the single to contemporary hit radio in the United States on October 2. “Diamonds” is a mid-tempo pop ballad with influences of electronic and soul music. The song is a departure from themes of “unhealthy relationships” that are evident in Rihanna’s previous singles.
