There is nothing we love more here at Jammy Toast than listening to some of our favourite tunes. From time to time we will post a music video from an artist or genre that we think will be enjoyable to you; our friends. We often feature music that you may not have come across before, or music that maybe you just missed the first time around. Try and listen with an open mind, you never know, you may find something you can add to your iPod. If you have any music videos you would like us to feature then drop us a line – we are always happy to listen to requests but we cannot promise to feature everyone’s favourite

“Diamonds” is a song recorded by Rihanna for her seventh studio album, Unapologetic (2012). It was written by Sia together with its producers, Benny Blanco and StarGate. The song premiered in September 2012, during the Morning Show in America and was digitally released the following day as the lead single from Unapologetic. The song’s lyrics were a deliberate departure from the themes of unhealthy relationships that were Rihanna’s previous stock-in-trade. The song contains a prominent concept of love.

The single topped the music charts in over twenty countries, including the United States, where it became Rihanna’s twelfth number-one single on the Billboard Hot 100 and tied her with Madonna and The Supremes for the fifth-most number-one singles in the chart’s history. It was certified sextuple platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and sold over 3.5 million digital copies in the country. It also peaked at number one on the UK Singles Chart and became Rihanna’s seventh number one song here; it was certified double platinum by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI). By May 2013, it had sold over 7.5 million copies worldwide and became one of the best-selling singles of all-time.

The music video was shot by director Anthony Mandler, a frequent collaborator of Rihanna’s, and depicts her in four environments that represent the elements of earth, air, water, and fire. The video received positive reviews and was praised for its imagery. Some critics believe that the heavily tattooed man intertwined with Rihanna’s arm in the video resembles Chris Brown. The singer performed “Diamonds” on television shows such as Saturday Night Live and The X Factor.

Davidd has asked me to point out that this was Andreaa’s choice and not his!

Enjoy…

  1. I call my wife Bambi. She thinks it’s because she’s cute with big brown eyes…

    But in reality it’s because I want someone to shoot her mother with a hunting rifle!

  2. Rihanna says if it’s your bin day tomorrow go and put it out NOW.

    “Don’t wait till bedtime – you’ll forget – and DEFINITELY don’t leave it till the morning,” she said

  3. In a desperate gambit to spice up our relationship my wife and I have decided to switch sides of the bed tonight. This is the kind of kink that makes or breaks white people like us.

  4. “Christopher Robin depends on Me,” said Rabbit. He’s fond of Pooh and Piglet, but they haven’t any Brain, so there’s really nobody but Me. I’ll see if there’s anything he wants doing, and then I’ll do it for him. It’s just the day for doing things.”

    I love hanging out at the home of my campus mom Dr Claudia most days. My American human makes the 3 minute walk from home to collect me at dinner time. As soon as he starts walking I know. I love him too & become happy super alert.

  6. This ‘drone’ photo shows all of our site. There are 126 plots. The biggest are 30ft x 130ft the smallest 30ft x 25ft. The veranda is in the middle, with a light-colour roof. The Stadium is in the top left-hand corner. Half had been demolished, you can see how close we are to it.

  7. There was a massive unflushed Jobby in the toilet. I asked my boys who did it & my 10yr old son said it was him. Now my 5yr old son is crying ’cause he says it was him & his big brother is taking the credit.

    Have a great week everyone!

  8. I think it’s true to say that Red Fred loves our human. He wants to get as close as possible and rub his face on hers. She finds it a bit hard to stroke him while he’s doing this. I do the same thing but I wait till she is sitting near the table.

    When Red Fred first joined us in 2013 he used to watch my human from on top of the shed. He was very shy. How things have changed!

  9. I’m in year 3 waiting to hear my name called on the register. It’s a new school week & the little people are starting to get excited about something called Christmas. Have a lovely day friends, stay safe & take care.

  10. Not really assed about going out over Christmas tbh, we live in the NW, along the Atlantic coast. It gets fucking cold here? Wearing high heels, having to carry around a massive coat, being squashed against a bar with some fellas hands all over your arse. No Ta!

    Only thing I’ll miss this year is having Christmas Eve drinks with my dad. We do it every year but I’ll just have them at home with him. I think we can all forgo one Christmas pub crawl to make sure we have a proper Christmas next year.

  11. Lots of people asking if we were paid for the John Lewis add so here is the truth. They approached us, we gave a price, they tried to play hardball, we flew to their office and carpeted their windows, they went with another flock. The end.

  12. Trump can still win. If he barricades hisself in the White House and refuses to leave, he could have the highest pay-per-view ratings that the US has ever seen.

  13. Oh, day one of rehearsals for Panto. All the cast have been Covid tested, and he also tested me for Rabies!!

    …Blooming Cheek!! Both clear thankfully.

    Ha! Ha! Ha! Boom! Boom!

  14. Guess who’s just rang their kids dad and asked him if he needs me to keep the kids on his birthday bc it falls on his weekend so he can do something with his bird bc they’re not a bitter little fart?

  15. Every morning for the last few days I’ve opened the bedroom curtains and said hello to a little robin on the lawn until today when I’ve realised it’s a f*cking mushroom.
