Diamonds is the second single from Starboy Nathan’s second album, 3D – Determination, Dedication, Desire, to be released later this year. Starboy Nathan, formerly known as Nathan, released his first album in 2006, which only charted at #122. From this second album he has released a song featuring US rapper Flo.Rida called Caught Me Slippin’. Diamonds was released on 18th April and it is now #25 on iTunes UK Chart.
Starboy Nathan’s voice is very similar to other RnB popular artists like Jason Derulo and this could be playing against him on the popularity battle. It’s clear just by looking at his history that he has only enjoyed timid success. He has supported JLS, N-Dubz and The Wanted on tour but he is yet to take the big step and become a highlighted individual.
Diamonds is extremely catchy, very easy and enjoyable to listen to and radio friendly but also very safe and typical sounding. Regardless, it is a feel good song.
