Fiona Apple To Lil Nas X: Where’s My Money For Sampling “Every Single Night”?

The singer-songwriter calls out the 'Nasarati' mixtape creator.

(AllHipHop News) Earlier this year, Lil Nas X was hit with a $25 million lawsuit for allegedly using elements of Bobby Caldwell’s “Carry On” in his own song of the same name. LNX may want to prepare for another artist suing him.

New York magazine’s Vulture website published a feature article about Fiona Apple where the 42-year-old Grammy winner discussed blocking Panic! At the Disco from sampling a track off The Idler Wheel album. The singer-songwriter then took to Instagram to call out Lil Nas for also using a sample of her “Every Single Night” for his track “Kim Jong” off his 2018 mixtape Nasarati.

“The one thing that the lovely [New York journalist] Rachel Handler didn’t mention that I did say in the interview, which I would just like to say now is that Lil Nas X, you’re probably really great, but you used my song ‘Every Single Night’ too,” said Apple. “You sampled that song too, in a song called ‘Kim Jong Un,’ I think. Hey, where’s my money? You cute little guy. Where’s my money?”

In July, Lil Nas reacted to the “Carry On” lawsuit by uploading a SpongeBob SquarePants meme on Twitter. The Georgia native has been absent from the social media platform for several days, so he did not tweet about Apple’s IG video. Meanwhile, LNX has posted on Instagram about earning Platinum plaques for his “Panini” single and his 7 EP.
