NEW MUSIC: Rihanna – Diamonds + Tour Dates

Rihanna is kicking off the next chapter in her career with a new tour, a new album and a new single! This time around it’s Diamonds, the lead single from her forthcoming seventh album, album title not yet released. Rihanna’s been non-stop on the scene for the past few years, and she’s recently announced her Diamonds World Tour, which kicks off in March (tour dates below). I’ve seen mixed reviews about this song around the net, but I actually think it’s cool. It’s a contrast to the sad, emotional persona we’ve heard a lot of since the Rated R album. Diamonds has a pop feel to it with a percussive mid-tempo beat, lighter content and some nice vocals. I like that Rihanna is taking a different approach, not roaring out the gate with a dance/club type radio jam. I’ve reviewed her last few albums on here and I’m looking forward to where she’ll take us with the new album. Take a listen below and then check out her tour dates for next year.
