Sia Does Rihanna’s “Diamonds” And We Dig It

By Lauren Zupkus | November 30, 2012

Whether you love or hate queen rudegirl Rihanna, chances are you’ve heard her new single, “Diamonds.” What you may not have heard is the original version that gives the pop princess a run for her money. First written by Australian songstress Sia, (known for her her heartbreakingly awesome ballad “Breathe Me“) “Diamonds” was generously passed on to Rihanna via Sia, but not before the songstress gave it a test drive. Sia’s version is stripped down to piano that plucks at the heart strings and swaps Rihanna’s pulsing pop-friendly pipes for belts that leave the listener with overwhelming emotion. Watch it here, and let us know which version you fancy in the comments.
