Yes! I’m sooo excited to be reporting about Rihanna in a completely musical (as in drama/ex-boyfriend-free) capacity!!! The pop superstar– who’s new look I’m still loving all up and down– has officially announced her forthcoming single, titled Diamonds. Diamonds will appear on Rihanna‘s seventh studio album and will premiere next week!!! She must really be putting in that work because earlier this month she released that Cockiness single (with A$AP Rocky), which is off her last album Talk That Talk. Nuts. And I’m kind of more excited than I thought I would be, lol. Earlier today we saw pics of Rihanna at the iHeartRadio Music Festival and now we have the video of her there, announcing the new song. She describes it as ‘happy and hippie’ (or ‘hip-py’?) and she sounds quite pleased with the finished product. Also, she apparently ‘only knows how to be number one.’ Which makes sense. Checkie out!
UPDATE: There was some confusion and, since first posting this, we’ve learned that Diamonds is Rihanna‘s new single, not the new album. We still don’t know the name of the album but the cover art for the first single has been released.
