Found out about better music because of sample?

So this is what happened to me. Like everyone else I have been continously annoyed by the song Whatcha Say by Jason Derulo



It's typical R&B crap with one saving grace: an interesting chorus... which of course is a sample.

taken from Imogen Heap's Hide and Seek (2:52 mark)



which itself has been extensively remixed in fascinating ways







Has anyone else experienced something similar to this, where a rip-off sample in a mainstream song makes you aware of much better, non-mainstream music?

Who? What? Never heard of him or the song before. Although, now that I have, I must say that song makes me want to violently shoot people in slow motion.

I love Imogen Heap, though.

As soon as I heard him pronounce his name as "Jayce-on", I turned the video off.
