Sep 21 - Kanye Sued For Diamonds Are Forever Sample
 

 
Legendary diva DAME SHIRLEY BASSEY is furious after discovering rapper KANYE WEST sampled her 1971 hit DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER in his single DIAMONDS FROM SIERRA LEONE.

The 68-year-old star is considering legal action after West used the chorus from the JAMES BOND soundtrack song and alleges his record label Roc-A-Fella never approached her, reports British newspaper the Daily Mail.

Bassey says, "I didn't know anything about the song before its release.

"He didn't ask my permission to have me singing on the his song. I didn't even know it existed until I heard him performing at the Live 8 concert. I didn't even hear from his record company, which wasn't very nice.

"(Legally) it's something I want to look into, because he was very cheeky, so one way or another he is going to have to pay me a lot of money."

Well maybe not, does she own her publishing? They might of gone thru a company that handles publishing. Im probably wrong, who knows but i hope, and im sure Kanye isnt that stupid to not get a sample cleared, that this bi*ch gets nothing

Artists(whether hip hop or not) are funny, odds are she dont have no rights to the song in the 1st place, sooooo, odds are if her record label and Rocafella come to an agreement thats the end of it!

either roc-a-fella fud up, or she didnt own the rights to her own song, so they bought the rights without her ever knowing. i think roc-a-fella is big enough that their lawyers would have caught such a major (high profile) sample on such a high profile song.

which is kinda sad... artists dont own their own work.

"Diamonds From Sierra Leone" contains a sample of "Diamonds Are Forever," written by J. Barry and D. Black, published by EMI Unart Catalog Inc. Performed by Shirley Bassey. Main title from the Original Motion Picture Diamonds Are Forever. Arranged and conducted by John Barry. Originally released 1971 by Danjaq, LLC/MGM under exclusive license to Capitol Records, Inc. All rights reserved.
she must not OWN the song.. if she doesnt own the masters or the copyright to it she cant do nothin about it.. she'll get a piece of it only if she has publishing on it or somethin and from the booklet it looks like she DOES NOT HAVE PUBLISHING on it... nor a writing credit, production, etc.. in the end she might get a small percentage other than that she cant expect much...

Don't matter if she didn't write it...that just means she won't get her ASCAP...but if She performed the song...regardless she get's money from it....not as much as if she wrote it...
but they used her vocals...which if they were on a song and album or movie they are copywrighted...so she will get some money...I'd sue him too...shouldn't steal vocals or samples....

I think this is a fu*k up. She couldnt have owned the song (I know who I paid dog _________ publishing - Jay-Z) cause Kanye has sampled and made hundreds of beats and Im sure the first thing he does before making a beat or at least selling it is get the sample cleared.

He won't get sued. He got permission through the record company. She didn't write so therefore she won't eat off that sh*t. Sorry Bassey. You ate off the sh*t is the 60's.
