The 24-year-old, who was named “Sexiest Songstress” by the lingerie label’s “What Is Sexy?” list in 2011, will slink it up at the annually televised Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show performing two songs, one of which will be her sparkly new single “Diamonds.”
Strutting to the tune will be the familiar Angel army of faces and bods, including Miranda Kerr, Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima, Doutzen Kroes, and Candice Swanepoel.
For those of you who haven’t heard RiRi’s latest song yet (because you don’t live in the 26 countries “Diamonds” hit #1 on iTunes in), it’s a hypnotic track that dials the pace down from her more electro dance-y tunes in favor for capturing a mood and a Lana Del Rey-ish hook.
The pop songstress barely goes a month without releasing a new beat of some kind, and “Diamonds” is clearly her raise-your-lighters-in-the-air-at-my-concert anthem, a staple that’s been painfully missing from her otherwise extensive songbook.
Bieber will already be in Victoria’s Secret’s orbit, on tour in New York for his Believe Tour; Bruno’s next album Unorthodox Jukebox has a December release and the lead single is called “Locked Out of Heaven,” which is appropriately how everyone feels when they watch these supermodels in lingerie.
The fashion show will tape in New York City in November and will be broadcast on December 4. Just make sure you memorize all the words to “Diamonds” (there aren’t many) before you watch it here:
