Rihanna Turns Down Potential Diplo Collab: It Sounds 'Like a Reggae Song at an Airport'

UPDATE: Rihanna hilariously responded to Diplo's story. See her Instagram post at the bottom of this story.

Diplo did not find love in a hopeless place or in the studio from Rihanna. The Major Lazer co-creator tried snagging Rihanna – a hot commodity who has the third-most Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 singles ever only behind The Beatles and Mariah Carey – for a Major Lazer song but failed to impress her. 

"So I played her a song, and she was like, 'This sounds like a reggae song at an airport'," Diplo recalled in a recent GQ Style interview. "I was like, 'I'm gonna go kill myself'."
