Rihanna reveals drug inspired single artwork

Just when you thought Rihanna couldn’t get anymore controversial, she brings out a single cover which plays on the theme of drugs…

Rihanna has unveiled the artwork for her brand new single Diamonds, which was produced by Benny Blanco will be premiering on radio stations tomorrow.

After drug rumours having surrounded Rihanna in the past, this single cover is a great way of answering back to those reports and will certainly grab the attention of the industry and consumers. ┬áThe cover features Rihanna’s distinctive nails and tattooed hands rolling up a joint of diamonds, with her trademark R watermarked in the right hand corner.

Diamonds – which is also the name given to Rihanna’s 2013 world tour – will be the lead single from the star’s upcoming seventh studio album.
