Rihanna packs on the metaphors in her new video for “Diamonds”. Directed by Anthony Mandler, whose helmed past RiRi vids like “Disturbia” and “Only Girl (In the World)”, the mini-movie jumbles together several interrelated scenes: Rihanna running down a pitch-black road, laying in a room where broken items are fixed through a magical rewind, standing amid apocalyptic ruins, and floating in the sea, arms out in a cross like she’s waiting to be baptized. Is she trying to escape from the ruins of the past, or is she looking for redemption with her own diamond? Mull those questions over and more when you watch below.

Rihanna’s seventh album, Unapologetic, hits stores November 19th. The singer recently revealed the album’s tracklist, which features cameos from Eminem, Future, and a rather controversial one from ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.
