Rihanna continues her blistering music video pace, delivering a hypnotic, soaring clip that could almost be in competition as a Bond theme song. Director Anthony Mandler's clip hints at a film trailer for a sexy action movie no one has ever seen. Rihanna loses her grip on a tattooed arm, runs away down a nocturnal road and ends up in the midst of a violent urban uprising, all while floating away on a mysterious sea and singing about sky diamonds. --> watch "Diamonds"
