“Diamonds” was the second of three singles issued from Herb Alpert’s 1987 LP “Keep Your Eye on Me.” Produced and remixed by Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, the track bears the duo’s unmistakable signature sound. Contributing further to the Jam & Lewis experience is the presence of lead vocalist Janet Jackson, who was signed to Alpert’s A&M Records at the time. Flyte Tyme Studios engineer Steve Hodge also remixed the tune.
