This dark twisted fantasy (no pun intended) single, gave a window into the shadowy times Rihanna was obviously going through. She took her sound and formed it into a twisted rendition of what we had seen before.
The lyric, “Shine bright like a diamond”, has been on everyone’s minds since the day it was released on September 27 of 2012. We saw another transformation in Rihanna that was positive and renewing. Thanks to a new sound from Benny Blanco, and StarGate, Diamonds was another huge commercial success for the songstress.
