. @Rihanna channels @SIAmusic Furler on epic new single ‘Diamonds’


After a teasing few days RiRi’s brand new single hit radio just a few hours ago and as usual its quality lead single material. With her usual ability to select great tracks and channel the writers perfectly [see: Ester Dean on TTT, Makeba Riddick on Rated R] Rihanna delivers a sing-rap-chant almost in Sia’s aussie accent itself on the verses while delivering a soulful throaty delivery on the catchy chorus. The production from StarGate and Benny Blanco is a disappointingly mellow electro/bass affair and you can’t help but wonder if their former producing partner Sandy Vee [Only Girl, S&M] could have created a more empowering electro club-synth affair for the chorus but it definitely does the trick as far as letting the vocals stand out. I’m definitely waiting on a smooth electro club remix to this from one of the LPs many big name collabos so finger’s crossed people, David Guetta, Nicky Romero or Swedish House Mafia are def at the top of my list along with some to take the track even more darker and dubbier from BURNS or Chase & Status, failing that just bring on the damn album already!!
