Re: New Rihanna Era: First single 'Diamonds' [now on iTunes]

Tht is probably her worst single, and that's saying a lot. That's what happens when you have a new album out every 5 minutes, they can't all be good...

I haven't listened to it but I've noticed that at least one person says that about almost every single posted on this board.

Re: New Rihanna Era: First single 'Diamonds' [now on iTunes]

Talk about being overexposed. And its starting to show in her new material. Of the three I much prefer Xtina's single > Kesha's single >>>>Rihanna's. . She is already slipping on iTunes while Kesha whose song came out a day earlier is holding strong. Take a year or two off Rihanna or maybe even 5.

+1. Not her typical catchy singles but somehow it's a lil' too repetitive?

What's not to like? Seriously, it's damn good song- definitely repeat worthy!

Thanks again Eric

I really like this, for once her vocals are driving the song and I'm pleasantly surprised by it.

Re: New Rihanna Era: First single 'Diamonds' [now on iTunes]

I don't know whether it's strong enough to be a lead single but it's one of her better songs from the last couple of years.

Yeah When I first heard the song I was a little surprised at how strong her vocals were, well for Rihanna.

Re: New Rihanna Era: First single 'Diamonds' [now on iTunes]

I'm so mad @U Eric!! Ugh!!! U got me totally OBSESSED with this damn song. I can't get enough. I love that feeling of really connecting with a song and as soon as it's over u can't wait to hear it again. I know I'm driving my houseguest out of her mind so that's a huge plus too

Lyrics to "Diamonds":

Quote:
Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond

Find light in the beautiful sea
I choose to be happy
You and I, you and I
We’re like diamonds in the sky

You’re a shooting star I see
A vision of ecstasy
When you hold me, I’m alive
We’re like diamonds in the sky

I knew that we’d become one right away
Oh, right away
At first sight felt the energy of sun rays
I saw the life inside your eyes

So shine bright, tonight you and I
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky
Eye to eye, so alive
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
Shining bright like a diamond
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
Shining bright like a diamond
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Palms rise to the universe
As we moonshine and molly
Feel the warmth, we’ll never die
We’re like diamonds in the sky

You’re a shooting star I see
A vision of ecstasy
When you hold me, I’m alive
We’re like diamonds in the sky

At first sight I felt the energy of sun rays
I saw the life inside your eyes

So shine bright, tonight you and I
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky
Eye to eye, so alive
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
Shining bright like a diamond
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
Shining bright like a diamond
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond

So shine bright, tonight you and I
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky
Eye to eye, so alive
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond

Re: New Rihanna Era: First single 'Diamonds' [now on iTunes]

Anyway, can't she go away already? She remains saturated in the media because she's milking this Chris Brown thing far more than it's worth. If it weren't for that interest in her would have cooled off considerably by now.

And while releasing an album annually isn't bad per se, Rihanna does not work that hard on her music (not that she has to, as she has no creative involvement anyway) because every week there's a new photo of her off her face drunk, frolicking on a beach somewhere, or pretending that she's shocked to be caught with Chris Brown.

This song is OK BTW, if you ignore the fact that it's sung by this media hooker.

I'm feelin' they jealous, like I'm Monica Seles.
