rihanna gets a nu metal remix from koяn
The American metallers have put their own spin on Bitch Better Have My Money.
Bad Gal RiRi took us to the dark side in her controversial revenge-torture video for Bitch Better Have My Money, and now American nu metal band Korn have created a version of the track that somehow seems to perfectly match those hardcore vibes.
Rihanna's ubiquitous and distinctive vocal is re-laid over Korn's crunching metal guitar and crashing cymbals, with a sludgy, chugging bassline. The band are currently on tour with Slipknot, celebrating the 20th anniversary of their eponymous debut album; Korn have said that they are the party band on the bill, with Slipknot bringing the heavier stuff. Still, the #bbhmm remix is definitely a weird one, but while we endure the long wait for Rihanna's eighth studio album, we'll take what we can get. The remix has already garnered famous fans, with Grimes commenting on the Youtube video to say the track is "Perfekt".
Freak on a Leash (from Korn's album chart-topping 1998 album Follow the Leader) already sounds like it could be a Rihanna song, so perhaps the queen of pop / savage revenge murderess could repay the compliment?
