NYU Students Show Up Rihanna

NYU students cover “Diamonds” throughout the streets of New York. They did RiRi proud.

Big hair? Soulful singing against brick walls? A whole lotta red lip? An adorably nerdy synthpop DJ playing on the street? Niceeee.

There’s a formula to a successful ensemble performance, and this cover of “Diamonds” does it well. NYU, this is amazing.

2. The best cover of Rihanna’s “Diamonds” out there.
