Donna Summer's heirs against Kanye West, he stole I Feel Love

Kanye West angers Donna Summer's heirs. According to a lawsuit, the rapper is accused of stealing the late American singer-songwriter's 1977 hit 'I Feel Love'. The song in question is 'Good (Don't Die)', in collaboration with Ty Dolla $ign. Bruce Sudano, Summer's widower, claims that the use of the song has been denied several times. Faced with yet another No, the two artists decided to circumvent the waste through what is called 'interpolation' without authorization. “Faced with repeated refusals,” the legal documents read, “West and his co-defendant attempted to circumvent the ban through unauthorized interpolation. They used the song's iconic melody as the motif for their infringing song and essentially rerecorded literally the key, parts of I Feel Love are instantly recognizable with the use of a singer who has a similar voice to Summer's. Subtle changes to the lyrics were also made, equally without permission.” West had no comment on the matter.
