Rihanna song scandal with Hamish and Andy

Rihanna song scandal

 Rihanna recorded “Man Down” in 2011 – or did she?

We love our Hamish and Andy a comedic radio duo in Australia – and they got to interview Rihanna on her recent trip to Australia to promote “Battleship” her debut film.

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:
