The 'We Found Love' singer says she purposefully didn't put a full narrative in her latest video.

Rihanna says her newly unveiled music video for 'Diamonds' is purposefully abstract and doesn't have a particular narrative because it is more about "emotion".

The 'Princess Of China' singer premiered the video for her lead single from new album 'Unapologetic' earlier today (9th November), and says she wanted people to feel all the different emotions the song conveys.

"With every song it's a different story, so the visuals are very specific to that story and that world," Rihanna revealed to MTV News after the video's premiere. "With 'Diamonds', it was just a series of vignettes that we put together to help get the emotion across throughout the song, 'cause the song changes and it builds and there's no real way that you could do that.

"You just want people to feel that and I wanted little cutaways of interactions that would give you the right emotions," the 'You Da One' singer added.

Rihanna will follow-up the unveiling of the 'Diamonds' music video with the launch of 'Unapologetic' on 19th November.
