Rihanna “Diamonds” Was Almost An Eminem Song, Here’s What Happened

Though he intended to peck the singer on her cheek, Blanco says he missed. Do I hug Beyoncé? I don’t know about it.’” Blanco had sent the beat to Paul Rosenberg for Eminem around the same time and had no idea that the rapper actually cut the song. “She cut the song. Kanye West does a remix to the song,” said Blanco. Interestingly enough, while Benny Blanco did not get to make the song Kanye West’s like he initially intended, the billionaire rapper did end up hopping on the remix to the popular track. We could never imagine that Eminem had recorded a song on the beat for “Diamonds” though. 1 single. And I’m sitting there… Dude, so when it happened, Paul was like, ‘Man, Em had that beat on hold.’ I was like, ‘What? On his third night as their guest, the producer was telling the Carters good night after a fun night of drinking when he experienced one of the most awkward moments of his life. Benny Blanco tells Apple Music’s Zane Lowe that “Stargate’s like, ‘Yo, we’re giving this song to Rihanna. Elsewhere in the interview, Benny Blanco recalled when he once accidentally kissed Beyoncé while staying at her house in the Hamptons. “And then, this is how life works, full circle. Like, what’s the protocol? “And apparently, Eminem had done a song to it, too. When he originally wrote the song with Sia and Stargate, Blanco recalls that he wanted either Kanye West or Lana Del Rey to cut the track. See you tomorrow,’” he reportedly said.

This is the worst thing in my life.’ And I’m sitting there, and as I’m doing it, out of the corner of my eye, JAY-Z is right there looking at me…And I look at JAY and I’m like, ‘Oh, okay. As for how Jay-Z reacted, Blanco says he was sure he was a dead man as he glared over at the rap-mogul after the blunder. Is anyone else curious about what that record might sound like? “I’m like, ‘Oh, my God. Rihanna’s multi-platinum banger “Diamonds” was originally supposed to be for Eminem. Nice knowing you guys.’” However, Hov was either extremely cool about it or he never noticed at all. In a new interview with Apple Music, the producer of the Billboard-topping hit Benny Blanco admitted that he did not have Rihanna in mind for the track initially. Let’s do it.” He later realized just how great of a decision it was. Should we keep the beat for Kanye? First of all, the second she cut the song, they were completely right. I didn’t even know.’”
The producer eventually let it go and told Stargate, “You guys know better. “We’re saying, ‘Good night.’ And it’s at that point where I’m like… Okay, I haven’t yet. “And I was like, ‘I don’t know, man. Benny Blanco has written and produced countless songs for artists in the industry. It is currently certified 6x Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. “I definitely hit the corner of some sort of lip,” he said. “I remember, at the same time, I had given a beat CD like a month earlier to Paul Rosenberg to give to Eminem,” Blanco explained.
