Get ready, Navy:¬†Rihanna‘s video for “Diamonds” has just premiered, and it should come as no surprise that the Bajan banger managed to once again #phuckyofaves with her latest. The preview teased images of “No Church In The Wild”-like urban warfare, but the full video is more about black-and-white close-ups of RiRi. Helmed by her frequent collaborator¬†Anthony Mandler, the clip eventually expands into some beautiful widescreen shots of Rihanna among the hills. It’s a bit disjointed (where’d those riot cops come from at the end?) but visually arresting. Watch the video above.
