Producer Nick Mira recently addressed the situation.
Juice WRLD‘s breakthrough single “Lucid Dreams” turned the Chicago native into a household name, and is continuing to make noise thanks to a controversy surrounding the song’s sample. The hit record is an interpolation of Sting‘s 1993 record “Shape of My Heart,” and the legendary rockstar has allegedly threatened to take Juice and producer Nick Mira to court, after already arguing for 85% of the song’s royalties.
The news came through a series of tweets from the Internet Money producer reading, “After taking 85% of Lucid Dreams (for interpolating Shape of My Heart, NOT EVEN sampling) he threatened to take us to court for trying to get any %.”
Juice WRLD responded with a slightly different mindset writing, “Lost millions made millions. The song impacted many in a good way for me to be upset over it. There’s always more money to be made and I will make it.”
Stay tuned for more updates as this story develops.
