Diplo Tells Desus and Mero Why Rihanna Is the 'Truest Artist We Have'

He had a lot of kind words for the dynamic pop star.

You might remember when Diplo and Rihanna made headlines after she compared the DJ's music to "a reggae song at an airport." However, there's a little more to the story than you saw on your timeline.

On Tuesday's episode of VICELAND's Desus & Mero, Diplo stopped by to talk about his new documentary Give Me Future, and cleared the air surrounding his supposed beef with Rihanna. In fact, he ended up gushing about her, calling her a great role model and a revelatory talent.

"She's the truest artist that we have in this era right now," Diplo said.
