Nicki Minaj To Pay Tracy Chapman $450,000 Over ‘Sorry’ Sample

Nicki Minaj has finally reached a settlement in her copyright infringement case against Tracy Chapman.

According to ET, the Queens rapper has agreed to pay the singer $450,000 for the use of her song in “Baby Can I Hold You” in the unreleased single “Sorry.”

Following the release of her album Queen, a track sampling the Chapman single was released on the internet named “Sorry.” It was not featured on the album, and not intended as an official release, but had yet leaked on the internet and eventually on the radio.

Due to the settlement, Minaj will not be going to court in the matter.

Now that this is behind her, the new mother is gearing up for the release of her HBO Max docuseries which is set to be released later this year!
