Un des hits du moment “Work” de Rihanna et Drake contient bien un sample, même si les extraits laissent penser à une simple coïncidence…

Les extraits :

• “Work” de Rihanna feat. Drake (2016)

• “Sail Away (Riddim)” Richie Stephens & Mikey 2000 (1998)

Le sample a bien été “clearé” par les ayants-droits, comme l’atteste la source suivante.
Stephens said he was overjoyed when contacted by Rihanna’s representatives to get clearance for the sample.
“They contacted me last week Tuesday and asked if I was the producer and owner of the master and I told them yes. They said they would appreciate if I could move fast in assisting with the clearing of the sample because they wanted to release the song. So I put them on to my publisher,” Stephens explained.
