According to Blabbermouth, Rihanna has reportedly sampled Metallica on her new album, Talk That Talk.
The album will be in stores November 21.
The pop songstress used guitar riffs from “Wherever I May Roam” in a track called “Red Lipstick,” which appears on the deluxe version of her new record.
The song also features sound recordings from Chase and Status’ “Saxon.”
I am shocked Metallica would clear that sample. Unless Warner Bros. cleared the way for it to be included in the Rihanna track.
If Metallica, indeed, approved this sample, all that says to me is they love money. Nothing wrong with that. I love it too. But if I had as much as they did, I’d probably start cooling it on the money-making sellout moves that got me to that position in life in the first place.
Who knows? Maybe I wouldn’t.
