Dissecting both songs, Fader wrote that ‘similarities between the two tracks are definitely there’. ‘For one, the hook is almost identical save for the melody’, the magazine commented. But neither Rihanna or Just Brittany have themselves commented on any similarities between the two songs.

Of course the phrase ‘Bitch Betta Have My Money’ is frequently used in hip hop, first appearing in Keenen Ivory Wayans’s 1988 comedy I’m Gonna Git You Sucka. Since then a variety of artists have used the phrase such as Ol’ Dirty Bastard’ in 1999’s ‘Got Your Money’, Tyga in 2012 with ‘Bitch Betta Have My Money’ and most recently you can hear Drake rapping the line in 2013’s ‘Worst Behaviour’.
