Diction is the art of speaking (rap) or singing so that each word is clearly heard. It is the way in which we enunciate our words as we sing them.
Good diction includes the accent, inflection, intonation and the sound; how you sing your vowels sounds and close out your words.
When you hear Rhianna sing, listen to how she enunciates her vowel sounds. She comes from Barbados and has a Caribbean accent. This influences how she pronounces words and vowel sounds. I've attached a video of Lexie Torres singing one of Rhianna's songs "Diamonds".
Any aspiring singer must aim to achieving good singing diction every time they sing. This is the first step to connect with the audience.
