“Diamonds” (Jerome LOL Remix)

    Rihanna’s “Diamonds” is Rihanna in full bombast mode: stomping giantess beats, overpronunciation of words, repetition of the uncomplicated and nonsensical simile in the chorus (“We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky”). Jerome LOL has taken out all that bluster and replaced it with insanely cool breakbeats, sped-up vocals and enough synth strings to make you believe this could be the theme song to whatever James Bond movie is going to come out in 2018. In other words: yes. Is it as beautiful as diamonds in the sky? Yes. Yes it is. Listen to Jerome LOL’s Rihanna remix below.
