The One Artist Diplo Can't Get
He's one of the biggest producers on the planet. Producing hits for artists such as Beyonce, Sia, and MIA, but it seems that Diplo cannot get his hands on Rihanna.
Diplo produced the massive hit single 'Lean On – Major Lazer' in 2015, that had a short lived title of the most streamed song of all time. But it seems that not even that title was enough to impress Rihanna.
“I just want her on a Major Lazer song. She's like one artist that we can't ever get” he revelaed in a recent interview.
“I think before we're all done, she'll be on a song of ours. Hopefully. But if not, I don't really care. I played her 'Lean On'. She was like, 'I don't do house music'. I face-palmed so hard on that one.”
'Lean On' was also offered to Nicki Minaj before settling with new artist MO, which went on to sell over 13 million units.
Although she might have turned down the biggest hit of 2015, she did sit in on a studio session with Diplo he played “like, 700 songs” she might like to record
Finally at 4am he played her a song that he'd been working on.
“So I played her a song. And she was like, 'This sounds like a reggae song at an airport.' I was like, I'm gonna go kill myself.”
Hopefully one day we'll see Ri-Ri on a Diplo song.
