Shine Bright Like A Diamond

30 Sep

I heard this song yesterday and I immediately fell in love. I could tell it was Rihanna, but I had never heard it before, so I had to look it up. Sure enough, it was my girl and yes, I bought it immediately. I buy a lot of music. I’m always looking for something new and it’s easy to get sick of songs quickly. Don’t you agree?

The song is called Diamonds, which premiered this past Wednesday. It’s Rihanna’s first single off her seventh album, which will drop in November. I guess that makes sense why her upcoming Diamonds World Tour is called what it is. Rihanna’s one of my favorite artists and I’m shocked I didn’t know about this. In any case, I can’t wait to watch her perform it live this March in Buffalo, which is where she will kick off her world tour. Eeek.

Rihanna spoke to US radio presenter Elvis Duran during her visit to the iHeartRadio music festival and said that the new single was “laid-back ” and “hopeful”, adding: “It gives me such a great feeling when I listen to it. The lyrics are very hopeful and positive, but it’s about love and the gears are a little different from what people would expect. I’m excited to surprise them sonically.”

I can’t wait to hear the rest of it.

Diamonds

Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond

Find light in the beautiful sea
I chose to be happy
You and I, you and I
We’re like diamonds in the sky

You’re a shooting star I see
A vision of ecstasy
When you hold me, I’m alive
We’re like diamonds in the sky

I knew that we’d become right away, oh right away
At first sight I felt the energy of sun rays
I saw the life inside your eyes

I knew that we’d become right away, oh right away
At first sight I felt the energy of sun rays
I saw the life inside your eyes

So shine bright, tonight, you and I
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky
Eye to eye, so alive
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Palms rise to the universe
As we, moonshine and molly
Feel the warmth we’ll never die
We’re like diamonds in the sky

You’re a shooting star I see
A vision of ecstasy
When you hold me, I’m alive
We’re like diamonds in the sky

At first sight I felt the energy of sun rays
I saw the light inside your eyes

Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
