This is weirder than Sarah Whatmore’s comeback!

If you’d asked me to name the artist least likely to sample Dragostea Din Tei by O-Zone, I may well have said Rihanna… but I would have been highly mistaken! The rapper T.I. has a new single out, which features Rihanna, and you can imagine my confusion when the YouTube video of it I clicked on started playing O-Zone. I thought it was a joke someone had made to point out the similarity between Rihanna’s new song and Dragostea Din Tei, but I tried a few more clips of the song, and realised that it actually does sample O-Zone! I have to say the sample sticks out like a sore thumb (unsurprisingly!), but I still thinks it’s quite ace that they used it, and I hope the song is successful because it’s always nice to have Europop in the charts, even in odd ways like this.
