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

I still don't like it. It just does nothing for me.

It's nowhere near as good as this:

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

I really like it.
Being someone who generally doesn't listen to her music, I've listened to this song way too many times already.

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

From the comments it would seem as though most here love it and a small few absolutely hate it...lol.

And almost everyone agrees she floods the market like Mariah used to in her prime. U never really get a chance to miss her, do u? Nonetheless it's not hurting the quality of the music so....

Diamonds is so good. At first listen I thought it was terrible, but it's much better than anything she has released in the past year or so.

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

Nice song but nothing special. Idk if I've heard it previously, but just heard it from radio while reading this forum. I was thinking "Diamonds? Isn't that Rihanna singing? Oh is this the new single? Well, nice song but but I hardly noticed it."

Best Rihanna song since Only Girl in the World (and Who's That Chick?), yet not as good. Quite average, yet better than 70% of the shit in Top 40 radio channels.

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

Already down to #8 on iTunes ? For a first single that doesn't seem promising especially for a Rihanna song that already has a greal deal with radio. Maybe it will take off after she releases the video. The fact that WHYB never went to #1 is shocking but indicates the public is starting to get tired of Rihanna. I won't be shocked if her new album does less than 150K in its first week (in the US).

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

do you think it took the person who wrote those toe-curlingly woeful lyrics more than 5 minutes to do so?

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

I know she repeats something ad infinitum in every song, but in this one it's particularly annoying. Still, it's better than some of her older stuff. I give it a C.

I actually think it's her best single since Only Girl. Which isn't saying much, but still.
