Kanye West and Donna Summer’s estate reach settlement over use of ‘I Feel Love’
Kanye West and Donna Summer‘s estate have finally reached a settlement over the alleged “illegal” use of ‘I Feel Love’ on the rapper’s ‘Vultures 1’ album.A copyright infringement lawsuit was filed against both West and Ty Dolla $ign back in February by Summer’s husband Bruce Sudano, claiming that the two rappers did not have permission to sample the 1977 disco hit on their collaborative album.It was alleged at the time that representatives for West – had asked for permission to use the sample on his track ‘Good (Don’t Die)’, but were turned down by the late singer’s estate as they “wanted no association with West’s controversial history”.Sudano also claimed that West and Ty then approached Summer’s record label, Universal Music Enterprises, in a bid to be granted permission, but were denied once again. From there, he alleged, the two rappers “shamelessly” included re-recorded parts of the hit that were “instantly recognisable” on the ‘Vultures 1’ cut.Shortly after the lawsuit emerged, ‘Good (Don’t Die)’ was removed from Spotify and other streaming services.Last month, it was reported that a settlement had been reached and now in new court documents, it has been confirmed that the case has been dismissed with prejudice, according to Pitchfork.The documents did not reveal the terms of the settlement and all parties are yet to comment on the outcome.This wasn’t the only claim of infringement that arose following the release of ‘Vultures 1’.

Fans blast Kanye West for “barely performing” at Rolling Loud 2024
Kanye West has faced backlash from fans after he “barely” performed during his set at Rolling Loud 2024.The controversial rapper – who also goes by Ye – took to the stage with Ty Dolla $ign on Thursday (March 14) as the headliners for the opening night for 2024’s Rolling Loud Festival in Los Angeles.However, while the show was expected to be his first full-scale festival performance since the series of antisemitic remarks he made at the end of 2022, instead the rappers merely stood on stage for an hour while pre-recorded music of theirs played over the loudspeakers.The pair were clad in dark hooded outfits, with West wearing his often-seen hockey mask, and paced around the stage for an hour while their ‘Vultures 1’ album played. Afterwards, a DJ played hits from West’s earlier discography while the stage filled with dry ice.While the wording in the official announcement was vague – simply reading as “Vultures headlining new Thursday night” – there was a general understanding among fans that the set was going to feature live vocals.According to sources speaking to Variety, the festival organisers themselves thought the headline slot would be a more conventional performance too, and even erected a special stage with a circular lighting rig specifically for the set.They also clarified to a fan on X/Twitter that the set would see West and Dolla $ign “Perform”, before later adding: “Oops idk bro it’s on him” (via Mirror).Unsurprisingly, the Thursday show divided the opinions of those in attendance, with many taking to social media to criticise the rappers for the set.“I was there and didn’t even know ye came out,” one fan wrote on X, while another added: “I’m really disappointed in ye, he shoulda demanded a mic.
