Must See: Sia Soars With Rihanna’s ‘Diamonds’

sia diamonds e1354193811890 Must See: Sia Soars With Rihannas Diamonds

As with most Rihanna songs, an army of writers and producers were assembled to craft her latest smash ‘Diamonds’.

Songwriter Sia Furler, whose name (and bank balance) have stretched in recent years due to her hand in writing many a Billboard hit, was one of those enlisted to cook up the star’s twelfth US #1.

And with the song achieving success on a global scale, it was only fitting that the Australian performed her handiwork at the Norweigan-American Achievement Awards last night. The event celebrated the success of Norwegian production duo Stargate – who co-produced ‘Diamonds’ with Benny Blanco and are also at the helm of most of the model’s hits.

Backed by Stargate themselves, watch Sia shine bright like a diamond after the jump…

The actual slayage! Sia nailed it; although, having followed her rise, we wouldn’t expect anything less. She’s such a stellar talent. A fact Rihanna clearly clocked on to, hence her identical rendition of Sia’s ‘Diamonds’ demo (see: same adlibs, same annunciation, same everything).

It’s a fact which re-affirms one of our main gripes with Ms. Fenty. For, like Whitney Houston, she isn’t a songwriter (believe those “credits” if you choose); however Whitney more than compensated for this by being an interpreter of song. Not only would she make any track her own, she’d deliver her own catalogue with slight differences each performance. Indeed, see if you can find an identical ‘I Will Always Love You’ showing anywhere.

Waiting.

With Rih, though, we’re still chuckling at her “Sia accent” on ‘Diamonds’. Then again, she’s chuckling at the top of the charts. Is this what the industry has come to? Models-with-mics…making it?

Your thoughts?

    Rihanna did a great job with diamonds, and your clocking her for her sia accent but was all up Christina’s ass on blank page with all that sia yodeling. Rihanna has always been a great interpreter of records, and as a visual artist can bring to them things their songwriters often cant. #navy #webad #youmadd

    FAF RIHOE SAYS THANKS FOR THE SUPPORT,,,,
    The 13th word of the first verse of the first song on “Unapologetic,” the seventh album by Rihanna, is a curse, and she relishes it, hitting the syllables hard, spitting them out sharply as if she hoped they might wound someone.

    Lax Replied:

    The song, “Phresh Out the Runway,” is a chaotically dense spray of boasts over a muscular, scraping beat. Rihanna sounds indignant and impressed with herself, proclaiming, “Walk up in this b**** like I own the ho.”

    Lax Replied:

    Rihanna’s new album makes forays into tough sounds fit for a James Bond movie or strip clubs; at other times, she is vulnerable.

    Lax Replied:

    Rihanna isn’t so much profane in language though certainly sometimes that as in presence. Of all the pop megastars of the 2000s, she is without peer when it comes to her image, which is steely and unforgiving and bulletproof, a pleasure-guided man-killer with concrete for skin.

    Lax Replied:

    Even with concrete skin,,,
    That doesn’t mean she’s never hurt on “Unapologetic” (Def Jam), which is one of her best albums, along with her 2007 breakthrough, “Good Girl Gone Bad,” and her 2010 pop peak, “Loud.” But even on the most vulnerable songs, she maintains her cool, never once verging on the maudlin.

    Lax Replied:

    The character on this album is the product of several years’ refining, a process that began with her 2006 single “Unfaithful,” an aching song befitting a singer with far more shading to her voice.

    Lax Replied:

    Rihanna never did become a powerful singer, but by the time of “Good Girl Gone Bad,” her third album, she had begun to understand the limitations of the contours of her voice, and its advantages. She would never be the best vocalist on the pop charts, but she could be the most attitudinal, the most salacious, the most bitter. She could invent a persona as big as the songs.

    Lax Replied:

    And so, over the years, as her game face froze in place, her voice cured into a weapon of emotional chill and strategic indifference. It’s decidedly unfriendly, made to give orders. It matters way more than anything she might say.

    Lax Replied:

    Take “Numb,” a sinuous collaboration with Eminem that appears early on the new album. Rihanna has maybe three dozen words between the first two verses, but her meaning is clear from the delivery, which is forceful and slurry, alternating between stretched and staccato vowels.

    Ecstasyyyyyyyy

    In the air

    I don’t care

    Can’t tell me nothinnnnnnng

    I’m impaired

    Lax Replied:

    Her voice does wonders for the insipid lyrics on the pomp-thick single “Diamonds,” which sounds far more like a ..

    James Bond theme song than Adele’s too patient “Skyfall.”

    Lax Replied:

    Rihanna is also laser-focused on “Jump,” which borrows from the Ginuwine hit “Pony” in such a brassy way that it’s difficult to fault her for it, and which, in Rihanna’s inflections, nods ever so slightly to Justin Timberlake’s “Cry Me a River.” Often Rihanna sounds bored by a lyric before she even finishes it, and just as bored by the person it’s about.

    “Think I give a damn,” she sings. “Boy, don’t you know who I am/I ain’t run around chasing no dude.”

    Lax Replied:

    The music is just as brutish and bruised; occasionally Rihanna shows up essentially unaccompanied, but most of her songs are built tough and layered. David Guetta contributed production to “Phresh Out the Runway” and “Right Now,” two songs with appealingly guttural edges. “Pour It Up” sounds like a track the ambient-goth outfit Salem might make for a strip club.

    Lax Replied:

    The songs that are the least texturally confrontational are also by far the least successful: “Stay,” a dull, piano-driven duet with Mikky Ekko; the bland film-score-esque “Get It Over With” (apart from when she’s cursing); “Lost in Paradise,” which buzzes and hums but does not take flight.

    Lax Replied:

    In a few places on this album, Rihanna is clearly emotionally invested, as on “Loveeeeeee Song,” a striking, affecting duet with Future, the Atlanta rapper-turned-singer with the digitally shattered voice. By comparison, Rihanna sounds almost church-trained, and she’s singing with a lighter touch than usual, allowing flecks of hope into her dark room:

    Boy, lately, you’ve been stingy with your time

    Got me wondering, I’m wondering if I’m on your mind

    Boy, I just wanna be in your possession

    You say I’m the one you want so come express it

    The softness that comes through here is a rarity but not a revelation. She’s still singing about love as an adversarial game, and she’s still steering.

    Lax Replied:

    there remains the matter of Chris Brown, her former boyfriend
    The most tender, affectionate, spirited song on “Unapologetic” is called “Nobody’s Business,” and it’s the one that features Mr. Brown. Like the Michael Jackson song it borrows from (“The Way You Make Me Feel”), it’s gelatinous and smooth, and also carefree. On an album full of dyspeptic relationships, it is the breath of cool, nourishing air.

    Lax Replied:

    Aint nobody business,,,
    This collaboration is, as it’s called online, pure trolling: a straight-faced provocation that’s really a big wink. If you want a sideshow, Rihanna will gladly give you a more lurid one than what you’ve been cringing in anticipation of. To make public art with the person who physically abused you is immature, pre-feminist, post-ethics. To make it cheerful and humane is just vexing.

    Lax Replied:

    It doesn’t help at all that her songs with Mr. Brown the new one, and the remix of “Birthday Cake,” from her 2011 album, “Talk That Talk” are some of her best.

    Lax Replied:

    That’s what makes it so much more notable when she lets loose, drops her guard and just sings unvarnished. “What Now” begins with plain piano but gets to bombast by the first chorus. Still, Rihanna is doing some of her most direct, ambitious singing here. It’s the album’s one real purge, and a sign of a pulse beneath the armor:

    There’s no one to call cause I’m just playing games with them all

    The more I swear I’m happy, the more that I’m feeling alone

    Cause I spend every hour just going through the motions

    I can’t even get the emotions to come out

    Dry as a bone but I just wanna shout!

    Lax Replied:

    Maybe her true art isn’t singing, or appearing impenetrable, but rather playing with public expectations. She’s a brat with the tools of a pop star at her disposal to make her mischief. Keeping people guessing, or grumbling, is just another way of holding them at bay.

    I love Sia and everything but where in that pitchy performance did she “slay”? She sounded bad and her runs were horrible. I think Sia has a beautiful voice but she did not slay in that performance. You guys are REAL rihanna haters if you consider that to be slayage

    You clearly don’t understand vocal talent which explains your love and adoration for Rihanna. Sia’s voice is powerful and she has range. If glass was in there it would break. Rihanna tried to replicate her sound, no creativity or originality.

    why are talking about Whitney houston, talk about Beyonce who changes algebra into Algeba…… Also Sia would not chart with this …

    Yes rihanna’s version has some similarities , like duhhhh…..BUT
    this was horrible, her voice is so raspy, pitchy, her accent is too dominant. what a mess….then Sia is like 40 , how would the visual be ? it often takes more than a song itself nowadays to be a success, the musical video is a big part of it…

    Also Ciara the flop you stan for can’t sing it…so give credit for to rihanna for her vocal performance.

    I’m a Rihanna fan, I know she don’t write ALL her songs, but she do bring something to them. Her voice is different and she CAN become great, but there’s time when I feel that she don’t try, mainly because she’s over working her self and not letting giving herself the time to become great. She cut LOUD too fast, the main hits on TTT could’ve be added to loud as a re-release like how Take A Bow and Disturbia was on GGGB. But at the same time as a fan, I get a new album every year, but you have to know the amount of time to be missed. Some stay gone so long that they’re forgotten. I think she should do 1 and a half years album instead of every November. Drunk On Love and Roc Me Out could have been singles for now til next Spring.

    There will be NO shade thrown @ Sia. She WROTE this song & just like Prince, who sings songs he’s written for other artists over the years, she can sing this song whenever, wherever she pleases.

    Now, of course, this song would not have been a hit if Sia released it. It wouldn’t have been a hit if ______________ released it. Rihanna made this song HER song & I love her version. She is the top pop artists in the world right now. No one could have been more successful with this song. I also love Sia’s version–it’s just a different interpretation from the brilliant singer & song writer.

The SRP/Def Jam set is her seventh studio release in a little over seven years and follows six earlier top 10 efforts.

    It’s not unprecedented for an artist to score six top 10 albums without having had a No. 1. More than 25 acts have lodged six top 10s — without a No. 1. They range from Sting (10 top 10s, zero No. 1s) and Sheryl Crow (eight top 10s) to Brad Paisley (seven top 10s) and Rush (12 top 10s).

    Rihanna’s lack of a No. 1 album only seemed to draw more attention, perhaps compared to her consistent performance as a singles artist. Since her arrival in 2005, she has tallied 12 No. 1 songs on the Billboard Hot 100 — tying her for the fourth-most of all time with Madonna and the Supremes. Only the Beatles (with 20), Mariah Carey (18) and Michael Jackson (13) have had more

    I totally agree with Sam now that I´ve watched this performance. It´s not just the fact that Rihanna is not a songwriter (Beyonce isn´t either) or the fact that her singing is horrible, it is even worse, she just mimic every little detail on the songs she is given by her label. Sad sad sad
    The industry is sad at the moment

    There are women who make things better, simply by showing up. There are women who make things happen. There are women who make their way. There are women who make a difference. And women who make us smile. There are women of wit and wisdom who through strength and courage- make it through. There are women who change the world everyday…

    Rihanna is One of those Women!!!!

    She slayed because she has real talent, listen to Rihanna and you hear the backtracking and her singing over it, this woman here sings live with real talent. Sad how Rihanna cant perform her stuff natural she has too copy to know how to sing a song. This only shows that Rihanna is nothing.. I dont care how much she sales she still dont have it.

    Unfortunately, this is exactly what the industry has become. I’m not saying this applies to Rihanna, but most “artists” today would have no careers without autotune and singing other people’s songs.
