Rihanna tells Diplo he makes “airport reggae”

By | Published on Wednesday 9 August 2017


Rihanna has apologised – sort of – for once telling Diplo that one of his tracks sounded like “airport reggae”. Even though that sounds like a genre we could all get behind.

In a recent GQ interview, Diplo described a time when he was hanging out with other artists, including Future and Rihanna. “Future played her, like, 700 songs”, he recalled. “It was four in the morning. Finally, I was like, ‘I’m leaving unless you let me play her a song'”.

“So I played her a song”, he continued, “And she was like, ‘This sounds like a reggae song at an airport'”. Laughing, Diplo concluded: “I was like, I’m gonna go kill myself”.

Linking through to the interview¬†via Instagram yesterday, Rihanna responded “my bad @Diplo” alongside the hashtag #dutyfree. Good times.
