What appears to be behind-the-scenes footage documenting Rihanna's Dior campaign shoot at Versailles washed up online earlier this week, and it seems to be soundtracked by a rumored Florence + the Machine-sampling #R8 track. The song that plays in the video is a dark and twisted take on Florence's 2011 track "Only If For A Night," aligning neatly with news from January of this year that a song called "A Night," which attributes writing credit to Florence Welch, had been registered with ASCAP under Rihanna's name.
In an interview with KROQ also in January, Florence said she was "thrilled" by Rih's use of her song. "I'm such a huge fan," she said. "She sent me the song and I said of course. It's a sample. I don't want to tell everything about the song, but I think it's a sample... I love it when stuff like that happens. When people re-imagine your music, I love that when it has all these different forms." Fingers crossed the rest of the song comes soon.
