Looks like two Australian radio comedians have busted Rihanna for song theft.
A few years back, Hamish and Andy interviewed Rihanna about her songwriting process. "If you think of a tune instead of humming something in the morning do you call Jay-Z and go 'rapapapa?'," they asked her.
"By the way, if we hear 'rapapapa' in one of your songs we're going to know where you got it from," they added as a disclaimer.
Not long after the interview, Rihanna came out with the song 'Man Down,' which includes a repeating of the sound "rum pa-pa-pum" in the chorus. Rihanna was back on 'Hamish and Andy' last week to promote her movie 'Battleship' and the duo confronted her about the (possible) theft.
