‘Red Lipstick’ Meets Metal: Rihanna Samples Metallica on Bonus Track

Good girl gone bad Rihanna is embracing her dark side once more on ‘Talk That Talk.’ The record-breaking pop superstar sampled Metallica on a bonus track of her buzzed-about new album.

Blabbermouth reported that RiRi used riffs from the metal legends’ track ‘Wherever I May Roam’ on ‘Red Lipstick,’ available on the ‘Talk That Talk’ deluxe edition. ‘Wherever I May Roam’ was on Metallica’s 1991 self-titled album (often referred to as ‘the black album,’ not to be confused with the one by RiRi’s mentor, Jay-Z). The track also samples sounds from electronic duo Chase & Status’ song ‘Saxon.’

The Metallica sample isn’t the Bajan beauty’s first foray into rock. Guns N’ Roses and Velvet Revolver legend Slash contributed to ‘Rockstar 101′ from her fourth album, ‘Rated R.’

‘Red Lipstick’ is equally R-rated — or possibly X. Idolator snagged snippets of Ri’s bonus tracks, and this one is particularly raunchy. In just the few seconds that you can hear below, she snarls, “Let me grab my d— while you sit on top / Do you right here while the whole world’s watching.”

We’re guessing she doesn’t kiss her mother with that mouth. If she did, all her ‘Red Lipstick’ would smudge.
