In a new interview with GQ Style, the producer revealed that he's been trying to collab with Rihanna forever, but she's "the one artist we can't ever get."
"I played her 'Lean On.' She was like, I don't do house music. I face-palmed so hard on that one," he told the magazine. "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," he continued. "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 kill myself."
Airport music? To be fair, I think anyone would have wanted to die at that point.
The story started making the rounds online this week, and it seems Rihanna couldn't help having a little fun with it, posting a pic of one of the headlines on Instagram and writing in the caption, "My bad @diplo."
