On December 11, Rihanna will release a $250 “Diamonds” album, a special edition of the album and a lot of gifts.
In two weeks, Rihanna will release her new album, “Unapologetic”. It is the singer’s seventh album in just as many years. The first single from the new album, “Diamonds” is currently at the top of Billboard, ranking at number 8 in Hot 100. Two other versions of the album will be released November 19th and December 11th, all wrapped for a great holiday gift.
If you’re already thinking about holiday gifts, Rihanna’s special edition album should work just fine for her fans. And it’s quite an expensive gift: $250! Even if it’s a price that makes you think it’d better be diamonds inside, Rihanna’s $250 “Diamonds Executive Platinum Box” features quite a lot for that cost.
MTV News writes that the $250 album edition features collectible “Diamonds” vinyl remixes, a personal note from Rihanna, a 2GB USB flash drive in the shape of a credit card, a T-shirt of Rihanna from the “Unapologetic” album shoots, lithographs of Michael Muller’s photos as well as exclusive photos from the “Unapologetic” shooting session.
The box will also contain an illustration Magnus Voll Mathiassen, three album cover art stickers for smartphones, seven stickers of Mario Hugo’s art for laptops, a custom-made View Waster of Rihanna’s style evolution. And there’s more…. The $250 special edition features a 40-page notebook with lyrics and notes, a 28-photo and art booklet, 20 minutes of unrealeased images, a poster and even a video taken during the Loud Tour.
If $250 is too much for your pockets, you can always choose the $79 “Diamonds” album, which will be released on November 19. It obviously features a lot less than the $250 box, but it still makes a great gift for her fans. For $79 you get the Rihanna t-shirt, the 20-minutes video and Loud Tour performance, the laptop stickers, fan poster and the deluxe album.
The 79$ Rihanna album also comes with a “limited edition genuine, conflict-free diamond bracelet”. It features a band made from black leather, a 1pt diamond on a brass disc and a signature logo.
