The song was covered by Rihanna
for her 2016 ANTI
album. Apart from the title being shortened to "Same Ol' Mistakes," the Bajan singer's version is a duplicate in just about every other way. "She was spearheading the whole thing," Kevin Parker told MTV News. "She just wanted to do something with the song. I didn't really know what it was."
The Australian sent the song's backing track to Rihanna and her production team. Parker didn't get to hear the songstress's reassembled version on ANTI
until the release of the album. "It was pretty surreal," he said.
