Rihanna — Diamonds Remix (Feat. Kanye West)

Posted by on November 17, 2012

Though I have a rapidly-growing repugnance for the kind of dubious, diluted songwriting which plagues Rihanna’s “Diamonds,” my serious infatuation with Kanye’s sense of humor has made this remix irresistible. Today I took my first listen of his almost two-minute-long introductory verse, and whether its intention was as a satire on pop radio lyricism or not, it’s a knockout. Though there are many competent contenders in the race for most un/intentionally hilarious mainstream emcees of our time, for the time being Kanye’s got it on lock. Favorite quotables: “Baby, just step up and kiss the belt…a little lower…that’s wassup,” and “my style like sex in the shower, fresh as fuck.”
