“Diamonds” (Video)

    As if the world wasn’t already anticipating her seventh album, Unapologetic, releasing Nov. 19 through Def Jam, Rihanna gives its lead single, “Diamonds,” a stunning visual makeover.

    The clip commences with RiRi smoking a blunt rolled with diamonds—a nod to her recent sightings smoking the sticky icky perhaps?—before flourishing into collage of footage showing a stallion roaming free on a beach, a destroyed home in which items are magically fixed in rewind, the singer running down a dark road and later floating alone in the sea.

    It all seems heavy on the metaphors—and there’s no prizes for guessing what these may be. You can watch “Diamonds” below and purchase the single on iTunes.
