They say “Diamonds” are a girl’s best friend. Well Rihanna rolls up loose diamonds on the artwork (spotted at HHNM) for the lead single off her upcoming seventh studio album. The Stargate-produced track is set to premiere this Wednesday, September 26th at 8 a.m. EST on radio stations cross country, with an iTunes release following shortly after. In an interview over the weekend in Las Vegas, RiRi spoke on the “happy and hippy” feel her new record brings.

“Its laid back, but it’s hopeful. Its a record that 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 think. I’m excited about that, I’m excited to surprise them sonically.”

The title also serves as the name of her 2013 North American tour, which begins next March.
