Boy Band Midnight Red Covers Rihanna’s ‘Diamonds’
Subscribe to PopCrush on
If you’ve ever wanted to hear ‘Diamonds’ by Rihanna sung by a group of dudes, it’s your lucky day.
Midnight Red, a boy band assembled by megaproducer RedOne and Kings of L.A. Records founder Pete Farmer, covered the massive hit, bringing a new sparkle to the ubiquitous track. Replacing Rih’s deliberately robotic “Shine bright like a diamond” refrain with harmonies, singing with only a piano to accompany them. There’s a much clearer melody in this rendition of ‘Diamonds,’ so those who were less than thrilled with the original may love this one.
