After spending the past few weeks making headlines for non-musical reasons, Rihanna re-entered the radio with her new single “Diamonds.”

And it’s (deep breath) pretty good! Rather than releasing another “We Found Love”-style club-thumper, RiRi opted for a midtempo mood-piece that revolves around the line, “We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky.” Lana Del Rey herself couldn’t have said it better.

Check out the new single below and let us know what you think:
