Well, this is going to be one hell of a week in pop.
We’ve already got tracks from Ke$hus, Lana Del Slay and Queen Kylie on the way, and now, we’re about to get our yearly fix of G4L Navi Commander, Illuminati Princess and Reign Enthusiast, Rihanna.
Earlier today, the Bajan beauty unveiled the single art for “Diamonds,” the Stargate & Benny Blanco-produced, Sia-penned lead single from her forthcoming
438th 7th studio album, which is due out in November.
The artwork–which should appeal to fans of Rihanna’s Instagram account–finds the “Roc Me Out” chanteuse rolling a fat one filled with diamonds. Weed found love in a hopeless haze!
It’s all a bit…well, I don’t know. Blunt? But it doesn’t matter. As Ri would likely tweet: #Phuck haters, Navi!
The song will premiere worldwide on radio stations at 8 AM EST on Wednesday, September 26 (and 9 AM on iTunes.)
The songstress also premiered a new website–Rihanna7–which will undoubtedly contain loads of teasers and tidbits along the way. So put that in your pipe and smoke it.
“Diamonds” will be released on Wednesday, September 26. (iTunes)
