Last week, the Queen of Pop left a note on rapper Tory Lanez’s Instagram post, claiming that he illegally sampled her classic song “Into the Groove” on his new track “Pluto’s Last Comet” from his ’80s-inspired album Alone at Prom.
“Read your messages [for] illegal usage of my song get into the groove!” she wrote from her verified Instagram in an attempt to get his attention. As of publishing, the post has gained nearly 3,000 likes and almost 500 replies. Representatives from both artists have yet to respond to multiple requests seeking comment.
“Into the Groove” was written and produced by Madonna and Stephen Bray in 1985, and was featured in the film Desperately Seeking Susan, in which Madonna also starred.
Madonna’s accusation is the last thing Lanez needs right now. The rapper is currently in an ongoing trial for allegedly shooting Megan Thee Stallion in the foot after a party last summer. In October 2020, he was charged with felony assault and several gun counts that carry a maximum sentence of 22 years and eight months in prison if convicted. He has pleaded not guilty to all charges.
