Rihanna was on Saturday Night Live Saturday night and gave a visually interesting performance of her pop hit, Diamonds. The background while she was doing the song looked like a bad 90’s computer graphic. That’s not necessarily a bad thing. It felt like an quirky artistic choice. Check out her performance and let us know what you think  in the comments.

Rihanna Shares New "Diamonds" Artwork

It’s getting crowded over here, the wait for new Rihanna music is over. That is, if you were waiting at all. Less than a year since the release of her sixth studio album “Talk That Talk,” Rihanna is back with another single for her, wait for it: seventh studio album!

On Wednesday, Rihanna will release the lead single and namesake of her new album, “Diamonds,” which will also be the name of her forthcoming world tour.

In an interview with New York City’s Z-100’s radio host Elvis Duran, NME.com reported that “Diamonds” will be a “happy and hippy record,” according to the megastar herself:  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.”

If rumors about the album release date are true, this new Rihanna album will be the fourth album to be released in November (“Rated R,” November 2009; “Loud,” November 2010; and “Talk That Talk,” November 2011).

If you’re extra curious, you can check out the makings of a new Rihanna site which the singer tweeted to her followers: www.rihanna7.com.
