Twenty-two years ago, Madonna released the song ‘Vogue’, which became so successful and even hit number one on the charts.
And now, a record company is suing the Like A Virgin star for copyright infringement for the hit single.
The company, VMG Salsoul, has recently filed a lawsuit against the megastar for using samples from Chicago Bus Stop (Ooh, I Love It), the Salsoul Orchestra’s 1977 dance song. The samples used were some horns and strings, which helped make the song the hit that it was.
The company, however, is being questioned for taking so long to make a complaint. According to them, the samples are not instantly noticeable and that they only realized it after using new technology that enabled them to isolate and identify sounds.
The company is demanding unspecified damages after claiming that the concert diva had profited illegally using the instrumentals since ‘Vogue’ was released back in 1990.
Madonna, however, doesn’t seem affected as she continues her MDNA world tour, which she’s doing with her boy toy Brahim Zaibat. The pair recently left Paris for Brussels, and were also seen on an Amsterdam boat tour earlier in the week.
