Rihanna is opening up about the concept behind the music video for her single “Diamonds” off of her new album Unapologetic.
Last month, the Barbados-born singer took to her Twitter account to indicate that she was starting to shoot the video with director Anthony Mandler.
The video is comprised of a “series of vignettes,” as Rihanna tells MTV News.
She also explained “With every song it's a different story, so the visuals are very specific to that story and that world,” adding, “With 'Diamonds,' it was just a series of vignettes that we put together to help get the emotion across throughout the song 'cause the song changes and it builds, and there's no real way that you could do that.”
She added "You just want people to feel that and I wanted little cutaways of interactions that would give you the right emotion."
Rihanna has worked with Mandler many times in the past, collaborating with him on her videos for such songs as "Hate That I Love You," "Disturbia," "Russian Roulette" "Only Girl (In the World)" and "Man Down.”
The singer recently confirmed that a collaboration with Chris Brown will appear on Unapologetic, called “Nobodies Business.”
The album is available on Nov. 19.
