Normally I don’t listen to a whole lot of August Alsina’s music (though I have liked a couple before, especially Numb) but Diamonds would not be the same song without him. Que’s sound is interesting and enjoyable at least for me, but August Alsina brings this song together and makes it worth listening in full.
The beat is ominous but forms into a solid Hip-Hop sound. Que sounds a lot like Future, who I can like on some songs. The hook is a smooth transition and does not ruin the pace. The whole message of the song is that women only want to be with them for their money and what they can buy them, or something like that. It’s the typical “we get women” concept, which knocks points off.
Overall, I would rate the song at 9.5/10. The track is definitely underrated after months of sitting through the summer with less than 200,000 listens. Go ahead and check out the song below:
