In a new interview with GQ, Diplo recently detailed his unsuccessful quest to collaborate with Rihanna.
During the interview, Diplo was not shy about getting into what had happened with Rihanna, he began by saying : “I played her ‘Lean On.’ She was like, I don’t do house music. I face-palmed so hard on that one,”. He went on to say : “Another time I had a session with her, and Future was also invited. The Weeknd was there. Metro Boomin was there before anybody knew who he was. I was so contact high. Future played her, like, 700 songs. It was four in the morning. Finally, I was like, ‘Yo, G, I’m leaving unless you let me play her a song.’ So I played her a song. And she was like, ‘This sounds like a reggae song at an airport.’ [laughs] I was like, I’m gonna go kill myself.”
But it was only afterwards that Rihanna took to Instagram to semi-apologize for her epic shade, posting a screencap of an article about the incident with the caption “#DutyFree 😂😂😂 My bad @diplo.”
