Rihanna Samples Metallica

  • Axl Rosenberg

One of the bonus tracks on Rihanna’s new album, Talk That Talk, utilizes the riff from Metallica’s “Wherever I May Roam,” and while that album doesn’t come out until Tuesday, this is the 21st century, so it’s already on YouTube, and you can listen now. Only a little bit of the ‘Tallica tune is in the song, and, as Metal Insider notes, it’s still, like, a gajmillion times better than that shit Metallica did with Ja Rule and Swizz Beatz… but then again, so is cancer, so whatever I guess.

But I think it’s worth noting that between this and her association with Slash and Nuno Bettencourt, Rihanna is definitely 23 years old, as she claims. Y’know, in case anyone was worried that she was lying.
