Diamonds by Rihanna was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, October 13, 2012 spending 1 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. Sia Furler wrote the song. "Diamonds" was written in this vein, and it worked: Rihanna had never before recorded one of Sia's songs, but it became a huge hit. Sia planned to use this newfound freedom to abandon her solo career, but her next single, "Chandelier," made that impossible. Rihanna used Sia's demo vocal as a guide, copying her inflections exactly. When Benny Blanco played the Australian songwriter the finished version, she thought the vocal still belonged to her. Rihanna performed the song for the first time on television during the November 10, 2012 episode of Saturday Night Live.
