Ye and Ty Dolla $ign Single ‘Good (Don’t Die) Yanked From Spotify Streaming

In an interesting turn of events, Spotify is deciding to remove the highly anticipated collaboration between Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign, titled ‘Good (Don’t Die)’. The decision comes amidst a heated dispute involving the estate of legendary disco singer Donna Summer. The move has sparked controversy and left fans disappointed and confused.

Spotify, one of the leading music streaming platforms, has chosen to take down the newly released track. The decision comes as a result of a legal conflict involving the estate of Donna Summer, the iconic disco artist known for hits such as “Hot Stuff” and “Last Dance”. The removal of this highly anticipated collaboration has sparked an outpouring of concern and is leaving fans questioning.

Spotify Does Damage Control

The controversy surrounding the removal of ‘Good (Don’t Die)’ stems from a disagreement between the Donna Summer estate and the artists involved in the track. The estate claims that the song samples one of Summer’s iconic tracks without proper authorization or compensation.

According to Billboard, the single included parts of Summer’s 1977 “I Feel Love.” After the release, the estate claimed copyright infringement. Additionally, it disapproves of the use. On social media, the following statement is credited as the position of the estate of Donna Summer –

As a result, any filing of a lawsuit against both Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign, seeking damages and a halt to the release and distribution of the song, can be costly. Spotify, in an attempt to avoid legal complications, chose to remove the controversial track from its platform.

The newly released album “Vultures” is already garnering significant popularity shortly after its release. In fact, it is slated to hold down the No. 1 spot on Billboard.

While the dispute between the Donna Summer estate and the artists involved continues, it is clear that Spotify has taken a cautious approach to avoid legal entanglements. This incident serves as a reminder of the complexities involved in the music industry and the importance of proper authorization and compensation for the use of copyrighted material. As fans eagerly await a resolution to this dispute, the future of ‘Good (Don’t Die)’ remains uncertain. However, you can still hear Ye’s song on other sights, including YouTube (as of the writing of this article).
