Madonna Accuses Tory Lanez Of Illegally Using One Of Her Songs On His New Album
Earlier this month, Tory Lanez (real name Daystar Shemuel Shua Peterson) unveiled a brand-new album dubbed Alone At Prom, which he describes as an “80s album” in online promo. However, as Tory Lanez continues to promote his latest work, the album’s eighth track–“Pluto’s Last Comet”–has garnered some negative attention from a massive 80s superstar: Madonna.
Last week, Madonna jumped into Tory Lanez‘s comment section and accused him of basing “Pluto’s Last Comet” off of her hit “Into the Groove” anthem. She specifically wrote:
“Read your messages tor illegal usage of my song get into the groove [sic]!”
Judging by Madonna‘s comment, she seemingly also sent Tory Lanez a DM over the matter. It’s also worth noting that it’s currently unclear whether or not she’s pursuing a legal case over the alleged “illegal usage” of her song.
Regarding her accusation, Madonna‘s main gripe about Tory Lanez‘s “Pluto’s Last Comet” is that she believes the song’s opening instrumental is a rip-off of “Into the Groove.” You can listen to both tracks down below and judge the matter for yourself:
Tory Lanez has not publicly acknowledged Madonna or her claims. Similarly, Madonna hasn’t issued any further comments about the matter.
