Nicki Minaj Warns Experimentation at Stake in Tracy Chapman Copyright Suit

Tracy Chapman goes for the win against Nicki Minaj, who predicts the case “will have a significant impact on the music recording industry, one way or the other.”

On Aug. 10, 2018, Nicki Minaj released her album, Queen. But something was missing from the musician’s collection of new songs. That day, she sent a private message on her Instagram account to Funkmaster Flex, who had a popular radio show in New York. Together, the two made plans to debut a song that wasn’t on the album. That song, “Sorry,” is now the subject of a legal dispute that Minaj’s attorney told a court on Monday “will have a significant impact on the music recording industry, one way or the other.”

Tracy Chapman, a hugely successful singer-songwriter, is suing Minaj (real name: Onika Maraj) for allegedly infringing her own work, “Baby Can I Hold You.” Both sides have filed summary judgment papers. And in Chapman’s view, this is an easy case. Minaj’s actions were “indisputably willful,” states plaintiff’s motion seeking a win.
