Alessia Cara Wrote A Song For Rihanna’s ‘Anti’
Alessia Cara wrote a song for Anti, but Rihanna’s didn’t end up using it. We know this because Alessia Cara spilled the beans during an interview with Juno TV. The “Scars To Your Beautiful” hitmaker was asked to name the “low-key most exciting thing” about last year and she chose her encounter with RiRi. “I got to meet Rihanna, which was really crazy,” she said. “I didn’t take a picture with her. I just met her and it was awesome. It was to work on her album, which was crazy. So I just went in there, and was like, ‘Hi! great to meet you, I love you!’ Then I just kinda did my thing and left.”
Are they friends now? “I don’t even have her number, it was a hi and bye,” the Canadian pop star continued. “I went for the handshake and she went for the hug, she was so sweet. I love Rihanna, like I’m obsessed. Just meeting her was crazy and no one really knew about it. I didn’t even want to take a picture, because this moment, I’m gonna have this in my brain.” At first, fans thought Alessia was referring to working on R9, but she clarified the situation on Twitter. See her interview and tweet below.
