So, the hardest working woman in pop music is back with ANOTHER single from ANOTHER new album. Seriously. This is Rihanna’s fourth new album in as many years, which is also due to be supported by ANOTHER tour in Spring 2013!
Rihanna’s really good at knocking out strong chart friendly dancey/pop/r’n’b songs. Who hasn’t danced to ‘Please Don’t Stop The Music’, ‘Rude Boy’, ‘Disturbia’, ‘Only Girl (In The World)’, ‘S&M’, ‘Who’s That Chic’, ‘We Found Love’ or ‘Where Have You Been?’ a million times? She’s got loads of hits under her belt and sales wise she’s the biggest selling female of recent times!
The new single is called ‘Diamonds’ and is bound to be another massive global No.1!
I like it! It’s not what I expected from the Barbadian beauty, but it’s still quite good. I was expecting another ‘Only Girl’ or ‘We Found Love’, but it’s quite chilled with dancey undertones – I imaging there’ll be loads of good remixes!
I like the single cover a lot, but I’m not sure if it’s sending a good message to her younger fans. I’m no goody two-shoes, but glamourising smoking (or drugs – the diamonds/crystals could be mistaken for MDNA or cocaine) isn’t really a positive marketing strategy for such an influential popstar!
I like this remix that I’ve just found on Soundcloud by El!ot!
What do you think?
