It’s simple, repetitive and its video makes little sense, but we’re still kind of obsessed with Rihanna’s “Diamonds.”

Sticking to the annual album release cycle that’s made her one of the most popular pop stars of the last decade and this one, Rihanna will release her new album, Unapologetic on November 19th. The album features “Diamonds” and tracks with Eminem, Future, and, yes, that asshole Chris Brown.

With all its symbolism of rebirth and running from a destructive past, the “Diamonds” video unfortunately seems to be grounded in fantasy more than reality.

Unapologetic Tracklist:
01. Fresh Out the Runway
02. Diamonds
03. Numb (feat. Eminem)
04. Pour It Up
05. Love Song (feat. Future)
06. Jump
07. Right Now
08. What Now
09. Stay (feat. Mikky Ekko)
10. Nobodies Business (feat. Chris Brown)
11. Love Without Tragedy/Mother Mary
12. Get It Over With
13. No Love Allowed
14. Lost in Paradise
15. Half of Me (Bonus Track)
