We all know the hit song from 2015, ‘Same Old Love’. We also know that Selena Gomez is the woman behind the song…

BUT DID YOU KNOW… that the song was almost for Rihanna?!

‘Same Old Love’ was written by a group of writers that included Charlie XCX, who mentioned in GENIUS,

“I think at one point Rihanna was gonna sing it or something, but then I think the direction of her record changed and it wasn’t right for her anymore…”
Then I think Selena heard it and was into it, and she sang it, and it just suited her voice and her story so well.

 

Take a listen to Bad Girl RiRi’s demo of the song that just leaked online.
