Rihanna recorded “Man Down” in 2011 – or did she?
This wasn’t the first time the pair talked to Rih – during a previous conversation the lads joked about her songwriting process.
“If you think of a tune instead of humming something in the morning do you call Jay-Z and go ‘rapapapa?’,” they asked her.
“By the way, if we hear ‘rapapapa’ in one of your songs we’re going to know where you got it from,” they added as a disclaimer.
After the interview in 2011, Rihanna came out with the hit song “Man Down” which includes a repetition of the sound “rum pa-pa-pum” in the chorus.
Not ones to let something as huge as this go – the boys confronted her about the (possible) theft.
Watch the hilarious interview below:
Rihanna, girl you better cough up them royalties!
