Get excited because everyone’s favorite pop princess is getting ready to give our music palates a new taste. Rihanna is building the anticipation for her seventh studio album and making sure we’re all on the edge of ours seats, especially with the release of her cover art for the forthcoming single “Diamonds.” And what did the bad girl convey in the single’s cover? It wouldn’t be RiRi if it wasn’t her manicured hand holding a marijuana blunt paper with diamonds sprinkled throughout. Oh, and there’s more diamonds spread across what looks like a table. Diamonds and weed are a girl’s (in this case, Rihanna’s) best friend.
Over the weekend Riri hit the stage at iHeartRadio where she revealed the single would exclusively be released on their station September 26th at 8am. During her interview with iHeartRadio she described the song saying “You’re not sad or dancing, you’re happy and hippy“. As if we weren’t already on pins and needles anticipating the lead single from her next album, Rihanna7 popped up online with her “R” logo containing what might be lyrics. Hmm…could “7″ be the album title? Well, for now, let’s all salute the Navy Sergeant while trying not to drive ourselves nuts in anticipation.
