Bassey Fumes Over Kanye Sample ContactMusic.com, 9/21/05
What would posess a superstar, major-label producer to not get clearance on a sample? Especially an obvious and recognizable sample that’s the whole basis of the lead single from the most anticipated album of the year? I’ve been trying to figure this out since I heard the original “Lovers and Friends” that Usher and friends didn’t just sample, but straight rerecorded without so much as a mention of the original artist. (I would toss a link up, but I’m lazy.) Oh well.
Fiona Apple has a new album? I might have to cop that. After I hear 2K6: The Tracks.
Oh, and this is freakin’ hilarious. I need to find this video.
