PSA: Rihanna Told Diplo His Music Puts Her To Sleep

Music News

Rihanna apparently really, really knows what she likes. And Diplo’s music isn’t something she’s rather fond of. In a recent interview with GQ, the prominent producer revealed he has relentlessly tried to get the Barbadian singer on some songs—but she has ruthlessly declined.

He recalled a time he asked her to be on Major Lazer’s “Lean On,” to which she simply replied: “I don’t do house music.” Diplo (né Thomas Wesley Pentz) said it was definitely one those let-me-cover-my-face moments. However, he’s allegedly said in the past that “‘Lean On’ is bigger than any of her songs around the world right now. Why am I even sitting here trying to negotiate?” according to Music Times. But then he tried to downplay it as a misquote.

That wasn’t an isolated incident, either. He also reminisced on another time in the studio where Ms. Fenty was blunt on how she felt about his music. “Another time I had a session with her, and Future was also invited,” he continued. “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.”

Sadly for Diplo, he hasn’t been able to recover from Rihanna’s read, admitting: “I’m not good at anything specifically.”
