Rihanna Samples Metallica On New Album
According to Blabbermouth.net, Rihanna has sampled Metallica on her new album, "Talk That Talk", which is scheduled for release on November 21. The pop singer has used some of the guitar riffs from the San Francisco metal titans' "Wherever I May Roam" track on "Red Lipstick", which appears on the deluxe version of her new record. The song also features sound recordings from Chase & Status' "Saxon". "Wherever I May Roam" comes off Metallica's 1991 self-titled fifth album, commonly known as "the black album," which in 2009 surpassed Shania Twain's 1997 record, "Come On Over", as the best-selling CD of the SoundScan era. To date, the black album has sold 15,715,000 copies in the United States. Although Metallica had scored their first radio and video airplay with their previous effort, 1988's "...And Justice For All", the black album was the band's biggest commercial breakthrough, producing five singles and making them into one of the most popular rock bands in the world.
