Fresh off her buzzworthy headlining performance at Friday’s massive iHeartRadio Festival, and her spectacular opening performance at the 2012 MTV VMA’s – where she won the night’s biggest award, Video Of The Year for “We Found Love,” – worldwide superstar Rihanna opens the next chapter of her reign as this century’s Queen of the Billboard Hot 100 with her new single “Diamonds.”
“Diamonds” will make its global premiere on Wednesday, September 26th with an 8:00am launch at radio stations worldwide. An hour later, at 9:00am EST, “Diamonds” will go up for sale at iTunes Music Stores worldwide. Just weeks ago, Live Nation announced the Rihanna Diamonds World Tour 2013.
“Diamonds” is the first single from Rihanna’s upcoming seventh studio album on Island Def Jam, details to be announced in the weeks and months ahead. “Diamonds” was produced by Norwegian hitmakers Stargate, whose track record of worldwide Top 10 hits with Rihanna stretches back to 2006’s “Unfaithful,” and includes “Don’t Stop the Music,” “Take A Bow,” “Rude Boy,” “Only Girl (In the World),” and “What’s My Name” (featuring Drake), and “Talk That Talk.”
