Video Premiere : Rihanna’s ‘Diamonds’

Bajan banger and relentless chart-slayer Rihanna has just premiered the video for her latest single ‘Diamonds‘, the first from her 4856th 7th studio album ‘Unapologetic‘, out November 19th.

In what appears to be one of her better videos (way better than her attempt at choreography in ‘Where Have You Been‘), the ‘Umbrella‘ songstress is featured in a montage of rather stunning clips (the diamonds, the water..ooh baybeh!), that appear somewhat disconnected, with faint traces of her personal life blended in. And does that arm she let go of resembles on-off lover/lunatic Chris Brown’s? In that case is the burning man in a hood towards the end of the video him as well? Hmm..cryptic. But interesting indeed.

Diamonds‘ moves up to # 4 this week on the Billboard Hot 100, while it has already topped the UK Top 40 a few weeks ago.
