Following her spectacular performance kicking off the 2012 MTV VMA’s, where she won the night’s biggest award, Video Of The Year for “We Found Love,” worldwide superstar Rihanna has opened the next chapter of her reign as this century’s Queen of the Billboard Hot 100 with the release of her new single “Diamonds”.  “Diamonds” is the first single from Rihanna’s upcoming seventh studio album, Unapologetic, on Island Def Jam.  “Diamonds” debuted at #16-bullet on the Billboard Hot 100, tying Rihanna’s previous highest debut, last year’s worldwide #1 smash, “We Found Love” (featuring Calvin Harris).  “Diamonds” amassed 41.5 million total audience, her biggest first-week audience ever on the Hot 100 Airplay Chart where it debuted at #28-bullet, tying her previous highest debut, last year’s “You Da One.” 

As the recipient of a phenomenal 6 Grammy Awards, Rihanna has sold over 37 million albums and 146 million digital tracks worldwide, and currently holds the record for top-selling digital artist of all time.  In 2012, Forbes crowned Rihanna as the #1 social networking superstar with more than 60 million fans on Facebook and 25 million followers on Twitter in addition to owning over 2.7 billion views on YouTube/VEVO – the most for any female artist.  Rihanna’s impressive catalogue of hits includes 11 #1 singles, including “We Found Love” which spent 10 weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, 18 #1 singles on the Billboard Dance Club Song Charts, and 22 top 10 singles.
