The elements have all converged for RIHANNA, as "Diamonds," the fastest-rising single of her career, rises to #1 on the BILLBOARD Hot 100 -- her record-breaking 12th Hot 100 #1 -- setting the stage for the arrival of "UNAPOLOGETIC," released on NOVEMBER 19th.
"RIHANNA is a multi-dimensional musical force who continues to prove she is one of the greats," said ISLAND DEF JAM Pres./COO STEVE BARTELS. "Seven albums in seven years is amazing in itself, but to constantly dominate the charts and set new records year after year is an astonishing feat achieved by only the best. I have just personally returned from being aboard the '777 Tour' global blitz, and I can tell you from firsthand experience that no one works harder, and has more fun doing it, than RIHANNA."
