She’s no slacker! Just in time for Talk That Talk to run out of radio-friendly singles, Rihanna‘s readying another album to make sure that our ears don’t go Rihanna-less for even a matter of weeks. Elvis Duran of New York’s Z100 Morning Show has the honor of unearthing the sparkly first single from Ri Ri’s seventh album in as many years, called “Diamonds.” When asked how we’ll feel upon hearing the track, Ri Ri responded: “You’re not sad, or dancing. You’re happy… and hippy,” before getting more serious. “Diamonds” will be “very hopeful and positive” with a sound that surprises fans.
Rihanna went on to tell Elvis that she likes to keep ahead of the curve to keep giving fans something new to listen to.
A new Rihanna single is hardly as rare as a precious gem, but we’re still looking forward to a new set of songs from the island beauty when “Diamonds” drops early Wednesday morning.
