On the lead single off Rihanna‘s forthcoming full-length, originally featured back in late September, the pop songstress announced her intent to “shine bright, like a diamond.” And shine she did; the record earned rave reviews from many Booth regulars, who saw it as a welcome throwback to the artist’s early hits. If you were dazzled by Diamonds, you might want to don shades for the record’s official remix. This time around, Kanye West adds to the luminescence on the guest tip, stunting his way through instantly quotable verses (“It just look stupid to be ignorin’ the Delorean parked in front of Armani Emporium.”) over Stargate and Benny Blanco‘s soaring production. So, has the Bajan hitmaker topped herself with the help of the G.O.O.D. Music head honcho? Debate away—and be sure to cop new album Unapologetic when it hits record stores and online retailers this week.
