Flo Rida + Rihanna Shine Like ‘Diamonds’ in New Remix
Flo spits a few bars in the song’s intro. “Colors in the rings / I flow / She sings / Baby, you’re a diamond / Shining,” he shoots. The ‘Wild Ones’ rapper’s usual flow is a little stilted in this track, if only because the tempo and composition aren’t necessarily accommodating to his style, which tends to work best when there’s a strong beat and a great melody to accompany him. His cadence is similar to the “Shine bright like a diamond” chant in the refrain.
Still, Flo’s presence is a bright spot in the tune and gives it a fresher flavor than the original.
It’s not the first time Flo’s appeared on a RiRi remix. He’s previously spit bars on a reworked version of her massive hit ‘We Found Love‘ as well as ‘Where Have You Been,’ and each time he’s kept up tirelessly with each track’s theme. He’s a big fan of “Bad Gal RiRi,” even dedicating a song to her called ‘Rihanna (That’s My Attitude).’
