Rihanna - Diamonds
The lead single from her upcoming seventh album, Rihanna’s new single - her 21st in under three years - is a subdued affair unlike hits such as Umbrella, What’s My Name and Rude Boy. Written by Sia and produced by Stargate, it’ll be interesting to see if this will be her sixth UK No 1.
Conor Maynard Feat. Ne-Yo - Turn Around
Turn Around is a collaboration between mentor and protege, after Conor Maynard’s career got a kick-start when his rendition of Ne-Yo’s Beautiful Monster became a YouTube hit. While previous hits Can’t Say No and Vegas Girl are pop affairs, Turn Around is more R&B and is sure to get Maynard new fans.
Nicki Minaj - Va Va Voom
With its pulsing beat and ‘super bass’, Va Va Voom is more than reminiscent of Super Bass. The latest single from Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded has a very catchy hook which listeners won’t be able to resist singing along to, showing that Nicki Minaj still definitely has the “Va Va Voom”.
