Discussing a music session which took place with Rihanna and others, Diplo had told GQStyle magazine: “Future was also invited. The Weeknd was there. Metro Boomin was there before anybody knew who he was. I was so contact high.

“Future played her, like, 700 songs. It was four in the morning. Finally, I was like, ‘Yo, G, I’m leaving unless you let me play her a song.’

“So I played her a song. And she was like, ‘This sounds like a reggae song at an airport’… I was like, I’m gonna go kill myself.”
