Had no idea she's part of Roc Nation now. Interesting. I like her a lot, her next record should continue the upward trajectory of her career.

I'm intrigued

Like you could tell Sia definitely intended this to be for Rih but ended up giving it to Brooke

The recycling of songs rejected by one person and end up as hits is fascinating to me. Glad grimes is getting these opportunities on the roc - probably would have ended up as one of Rihanna's best.

The competition level to get on a Rihanna album is second to none.

I love hearing about tracks that were originally meant for certain artists or turned down. Like Umbrella being meant for Britney Spears or Miss Independent being meant for Xtina. Fascinating imo

Maybe I'm just way out of the loop but there is no context to this story. Why is this Grimes chick so important ?
