Nicki Minaj sued for sampling Tracy Chapman song

Nicki Minaj is being sued by singer-songwriter Tracy Chapman over claims she sampled her song without permission.
 
A lawsuit has been filed over Nicki's track Sorry which she wanted to release on her album Queen.
 
It is alleged the rapper used a sample from Tracy's 1988 hit Baby Can I Hold You - despite being told she couldn't.
 
The lawsuit claims Nicki, real name Onika Tanya Maraj, tried several times to get permission to use the sample after she had already recorded her song using it.
 
Tracy's representatives repeatedly denied the request.
 
They allege the Super Bass singer went on to give the song to a DJ at a New York radio station - who teased it on his Twitter and Instagram accounts.
