Teairra Mari ft. Kanye West - Diamonds
Clearly feeling a little vulnerable in the wake of his ‘08 Heartbreak, Kanye West kicks off Teairra Mari‘s latest Booth feature on an understandably Paranoid note. Spitting “...I know you’ll never love me./ You’ll only love my Diamonds,” the Louis Vuitton Don is clearly begging for some reassurance, and that’s exactly what the singer gives him—well, sort of; turning the tables with a little male objectification, the one-time “Princess of the Roc” states her intention to love and treasure her “diamond daddy” just as she would a precious stone. It’s clear to see why this cut is being considered for dual single selection (with Cause a Scene); the intriguing concept, Mari’s sultry vocal stylings, and Kanye’s big-name appeal, along with Madd Scientist‘s fittingly icy instrumental, add up to a smoldering (can it be smoldering and icy?) club record with hit potential to spare. At That Point is due out sometime this summer, and fans should be sure to check out Teairra’s exclusive interview with our own DJ Z.
