Rapper Nicki Minaj Settles Copyright Infringement Case for $450,000

Nicki Minaj has reportedly settled a dispute with legendary singer-songwriter Tracy Chapman before a potential copyright infringement case could go to court.

The dispute was in regards to Nicki Minaj’s leaked track Sorry, which was set to be featured on her 2018 album Queen. While recording the song, the rapper requested to sample a snippet of Chapman’s Baby Can I Hold You but the artist denied the request. 

Nicki’s track then went ahead but what Nicki did not know was that the inspiration for her Sorry, a song by Shelley Thunders of the same name, was itself an interpolation of Chapman’s Baby Can I Hold You.
