Rihanna released the video for Diamonds, the first single from her upcomingUnapologetic album.  The video features the Barbadian singer running her fingers through diamonds, rolling "cigarettes," swimming, and crying.

On the connection between the song and video, Rihanna tells MTV, "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."

Unapologetic releases on November 20.
