The legendary soul singer is not happy that the rapper copied the lyrics and vocal melody for her new song.
Tracy Chapman is suing Nicki Minaj for copyright infringement, as the rapper ‘borrowed’ rather large parts of Tracy’s 1988 hit, Baby Can I Hold You, for her own song.
It’s been revealed that Tracy has filed a lawsuit over Nicki’s new track, Sorry, that the Barbie-obsessed star hoped to feature on her recent hit album, Queen.
Prior to the legal case, Nicki repeatedly reached out on Twitter to obtain rights from the soul singer to sample one of her biggest hit singles – but without success.
The Formula 1 star, 33, and US rapper, 35, have been enjoying a break in Dubai where they have individually shared clips of their adventures in the desert.
Lewis and Nicki then finally uploaded couple snaps on their respective Instagram account.
The racing ace, who is flipping the bird at camera, is sat behind the rapper as the sun sets behind them in the shot he shared.
