Riri teases fans with a joint-themed image for the single, before premiering the song on September 26.
In anticipation of her new song release, Rihanna has unveiled an artwork for the single titled "Diamonds". The black-and-white image features the Barbadian songstress' hands holding a rolling paper full of diamonds.
The song will make its world premiere on radio Wednesday, September 26. To Z-100 radio host Elvis Duran, Riri said of the track, "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." She added, "It's laid-back but it's hopeful. It's a record that... gives me such a great feeling when I listen to it."
"Diamonds" will be the first single lifted from her seventh studio album which is slated for a November release. In support of the upcoming release, the "Only Girl (In the World)" hitmaker is going to embark on Diamonds World Tour that will begin March 8, 2012 in Buffalo, New York.
