THE ULTIMATE DIAMOND PLAYLIST
DIAMONDS ARE EVERYWHERE YOU GO!
We curated the perfect list of songs (new and old) about diamonds.
Marilyn Monroe - Diamonds are a girl's best friend
This OG diamond song from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes is probably quoted daily by every jeweler and diamond dealer on the planet. Introduced by actress Carol Channing on Broadway but made famous by Marilyn Monroe, this song dazzled in 1952 and has been covered in movies from Moulin Rouge to Burlesque.
Rihanna - Diamonds
If the younger generation today would be asked to name a song about diamonds, this would be it. It is also one of Rihanna’s most popular songs ever. The song is about love and living in the moment, and is extremely catchy.
Shirley Bassey - Diamonds are Forever
It is one of the most sensitive songs involving the brightest human association with diamonds—true and reliable love. One can rebut this idea saying that there is no one word confirming it. However, let’s remember that music is the art of activating the imagination through emotional appeal.
Just free your feeling and imagination and you will grasp the true symbolic meaning.
Kylie Minogue - White Diamond
The song is about Kylie Minogue’s personal battle with cancer. It shines with incredible inner strength and individual spiritual endurance, which the singer compares with the white diamond.
Ben Harper - Diamonds On The Inside
"Diamonds On the Inside" is a 2003 album by American singer-songwriter Ben Harper. On this album, Harper brought on several new additions to his band, the first being guitarist Nicky Panicci (a.k.a. Nicky P) in 2002 who is the first guitar player to be credited on a Ben Harper record. Panicci toured with Harper on the Diamonds on the Inside Tour for almost a year.
Cardi B, Bad Bunny & J Balvin - I Like It
"I Like It" is a song recorded by American rapper Cardi B with Puerto Rican rapper Bad Bunny and Colombian singer J Balvin for her debut studio album Invasion of Privacy (2018). It was released on May 25, 2018 to radio stations through Atlantic Records as the fifth single from the album. "I Like It" is a Latin trap song that comprises a trap beat and salsa music.
Ariana Grande - 7 rings
"7 Rings" is a song recorded by American singer Ariana Grande for her fifth studio album Thank U, Next (2019). The song was written by Grande, Victoria Monét, Tayla Parx, Njomza Vitia and Kaydence alongside its producers Tommy Brown, Charles Anderson and Michael Foster. It contains an interpolation of "My Favorite Things" by Rodgers and Hammerstein, thus both are also credited as songwriters.
Drake & Future - Diamonds Dancing
Drake and Future’s mammoth collaboration What a Time to Be Alive produced plenty of trap greatness, (“Jumpman,” anyone?) including this low-key in-the-club anthem. “Sippin' on Dom Perignon for no reason/ Poppin' tags, upper echelon for no reason,” the diamonds dancing in this jam could be a metaphor for strippers.
Kanye West - Diamonds From Sierra Leone
This Kanye classic from Late Registration includes a sample from Shirley Bassey’s “Diamonds Are Forever” and addresses the buying and selling of blood diamonds in war-torn lands. The haunting video compares a life of excess to the exploitation of human life in exchange for jewels.
