Rihanna – Diamonds

The lead single off of Rihanna’s seventh studio album Unapologetic, the video for “Diamonds” seems to mirror the chaos the personal life of the singer and her tumultuous on-again/off-again relationship with abusive boyfriend Chris Brown. The soulful but melancholy song isn’t a stand-out comparison to the performer’s earlier work, but the video does a good job matching the ballad to interesting imagery including the singer running down a dark road to nowhere, floating alone in an ocean, and in the middle of a destroyed hotel room slowly being put back together through reverse photography.
