Kanye West is back in the news, this time for not obtaining proper clearance to interpolate a Donna Summer song.
In an Instagram Story posted Saturday, the estate of the late disco legend Donna Summer said that West didn’t obtain permission for the use of the singer’s 1977 “I Feel Love.”
“Kanye West asked permission to use Donna Summer’s song, ‘I Feel Love,’ [but] he was denied,” the post read. “He changed the words, had someone re-sing it, or used AI but it’s ‘I Feel Love’…copyright infringement!”
Ye’s song in question is “Good (Don’t Die)” from his Vultures 1 album, HipHopDX reported.
The post also tagged Ozzy Osbourne’s wife, Sharon, which seemed to allude to her similar complaint against West. She also accused the rapper of using a live sample of “Iron Man” even though he was denied the right to do so.
“@KANYEWEST ASKED PERMISSION TO SAMPLE A SECTION OF A 1983 LIVE PERFORMANCE OF “IRON MAN” FROM THE US FESTIVAL WITHOUT VOCALS & WAS REFUSED PERMISSION BECAUSE HE IS AN ANTISEMITE AND HAS CAUSED UNTOLD HEARTACHE TO MANY. HE WENT AHEAD AND USED THE SAMPLE ANYWAY AT HIS ALBUM LISTENING PARTY LAST NIGHT. I WANT NO ASSOCIATION WITH THIS MAN.,” Osbourne posted on X Friday in the aftermath of the Vultures 1 album event that was live-streamed the night before.
