Not sure what to think about that … It’s kind of repetitive with the lyrics ….

# 2

Yes, finally singing is back, and the electro music is over !!!

# 5

Quite repetitive, expected something much better from her this time around

# 7

the beat is a little off, that is true

# 8

Not her best but pretty good!

# 9

THE VOCALS OH GOD
LOVE LOVE LOVE

Uhhhhh the “Shine right like a diamond”(?) all along gets quite annoying after a while if you want my humble opinion…..

It’s ok, but definitely not her strongest with vocals and the worst choice for a lead album single. Jesse nailed it. It’s repetitive.

i actually a better party song like we found love.. but this is cool.. a different rihanna..

i dont like it… :/

Another Hit!! Rihanna Always Delivers…Love when she changes the style…Gotta keep moving Foward! Love u RiRi

the cover art is the worst. smoke and diamonds?? blah.

I like it, it’s a little different from the dance generic crap on the radio we’re used to.

Sounds very Lana Del Rey inspired.

OMG, Rihanna Del Rey…..In some parts of the song sounds as Lana Del Rey.

it sounds like Lana Del Rey! I LIKE IT!

Sia should have kept this song for herself, RIhanna will ruin this when performing. She has an alluring voice but no vocal talent. eh on to things that actually matters…

@Din: I think that has been her trend for her past hits but it can fly

perfect!!!!!! there is a big improvement in riri’s art.

I like it! I’m almost sure it will grow on me like We Found Love.
I love the fact that she decided this as a single, it’s different for her.

OMG I dont even like her a lot and I think is AMAZEBALLS!!! the beauty of the raspy vocals and the Katty Perry allure – the entincing ego content and the fresh hip hop verses!! loveeeeeeeee

Something about her voice I

Something about her voice I just can’t say no to

omfg i love rihanna this song this everything if you dont like this song u a hater on everything

Dubya Bush @ 09/26/2012 at 9:37 am

Not that catchy. Can’t really dance to it.

I’m on the fence, I don’t hate it, but don’t love it either. I love Sia and thought the song would be darker, I guess she dumbed it down for Rhianna. Btw, does this girl spit out an album every 6 months or what?

Dubya Bush @ 09/26/2012 at 9:44 am

@aletabeyhivenavy:

I didn’t say I ain’t like it. I just don’t think I could get my groove on to this,

this way diff than anything she has don before i luv it i find it full of emotions ….. u ppl asked for something diff and she gave it 2 u

boring with an added dose of boring. and whats up with this site lately? has there been an influx of tweens finding it or what 0_o

justin et trop beux pour les fille de 16ans

OMG I LOVE IT! ITSS AMAZINGGG ARGH

When will she try to write something herself? No wonder this already her 7th album when she only picks songs to record.

i love it..

HORRIBLE.

Why didn’t Sia just sing this?????

totally forgettable

H0LDon2me @ 09/26/2012 at 1:36 pm

I gotta give it a view more spins to really see if I will use it. It’s really nice to actually hear a her sing but lyrically there isn’t much to the song. And as for a lead single – it just doesn’t go anywhere for me but hopefully a couple more spins and I’ll use. Right now I’m luke warm. I don’t hate it but I don’t love it either.

kerrianne @ 09/26/2012 at 1:42 pm

Rihanna has done it again. This song is hot. Love it. another hit for sure. Can already hear it on the airwaves. Love this girl.

She sounds like Willow Smith…except not as good. I guess it’s a different sound, but I’m not sure how I feel about it yet.

I love the song actually…just not for Rihanna. You can tell this has Sia all over it. She’s is amazing singer/songwriter. It’s a great song, but it just doesn’t suit Rihanna’s voice. It would be perfect for someone like Ellie Goulding or Sia herself.

bonitamind @ 09/26/2012 at 1:54 pm

Well………. It’ll be a hit maybe.. But her style slowly fading. I think it’ll do good but not like her other singles. She going have to promote the hell out this song. But it makes me giggle that she and others think she can sing. I miss when you can turn on the radio and the song actually meant something or that person could sing. Now all these singers focused on the hits instead of quality. but im curious to see how far this song will go.

Reminds me of Rob Halford and some Judas Priest ballads from the 1980′s – not bad at all.

Honey Bear @ 09/26/2012 at 4:01 pm

Luv it!<3:D

Trinity J @ 09/26/2012 at 4:10 pm

Its not bad. Its probably one of those songs that grows on you over time. But I agree with everyone else, it is very repetitive.

too many “shine bright like a diamond” for a 3:45 minute song. plus, one album a year? and never actually writing or working on it?? lame.

I freaking love this song “shine right like a diamond” stuck in ma head don’t mind doe…:)

So the cover art is like she is rolling a joint made out of diamonds?? This chick thinks she is so badas*s…..pfffff!!!!!

Kathyarrb @ 09/26/2012 at 8:07 pm

Love it.

So proud of Sia who wrote the song!

This is not very good. Honestly, the fact that she churns out records so often reveals both how disposable she is since she’s having everything (including the autotune) just churned out for her, and how much she can’t bear to step out of the spotlight for even a second. She should take a page from Kesha – she took some time away and people are really welcoming her back.

She has a very amazing voice but she doesn’t have any vocal talent. She has no control over her voice. But I like this song. I just don’t like those electro, dubstep music which are the trend right now so I like this kind of song.

123notONLYu&Me @ 09/27/2012 at 2:45 am

lana del rey rip off… whatever riri…

@bonitamind:
I’m curious how long this facade of Rihana, the singer, will last…weird times

This is trash!!! Autotune to the tilt and what do you think is going to happen when she sings this live? Ears are aching now from just the thought.

NINASKIE123 @ 09/28/2012 at 1:29 am

once again she allows me to use repeat to its fullest potential….her VOICE got me on this one…..#RihannaNavy…..everyone else shut up.

@XxXxX:
Listen closer. “Shine bright like a diamond”
Bright – which is what a perfect diamond is, not right.
Clean your ears out. That might help some.

Riri took a break from techno and gave us Diamonds to chill. What a lovely song! I listen to it every day and my head is full and shining with diamonds. Go Rri Go!!! You always deliver the best…Where have you been, Only girl in the world, We found love, Run this town, Man down, Rehab, Talk that talk, Cheers, and the list is unending. Never mind the nay sayers. Keep doing your thing! Throw these shining diamonds on Rihanna Navy. We will grab it all and sparkle!!!!!!!

I feel like she did this by herself tryna prove somethin for being dropped from rocnation. Sounds like she forgot her own voice.. o wait maybe was left at the label in the autotune safe. Was there supposed to be an effect on “bright” ..? cuz the biting on it just sounds annoying.

Leave big and round vowels to Adele please.

Lol sounds like she’s eating a steak

Who would risk giving her notes with so much modulation..can’t wait to rofl watchin this live.
