Lupe Fiasco recorded then rejected "Airplanes" with Hayley Williams
Lupe Fiasco apparently went to the trouble of recording a pretty impressive version of "Airplanes" featuring Hayley Williams from Paramore before rejecting the song altogether.
When B.o.B put his hand up for it, he asked Eminem to guest star and pretty soon "Airplanes" topped hit charts in multiple countries and had such a huge impact on the industry that it was even nominated for a Grammy.
Also featuring Williams, Fiasco's version is much darker than B.o.B.'s, tackling heavier and more serious issues, yet it’s an excellent listen nonetheless.
