Rapper Nicki Minaj is to pay singer Tracy Chapman $450,000 to settle a copyright dispute after sampling one of her songs.
Chapman sued Minaj in 2018, saying she had used portions of Baby, Can I Hold You Tonight in her song Sorry.
Although the song was never released, a leaked version made its way to radio DJ Funkmaster Flex and went viral online.
Chapman accused Minaj of sharing the song with Flex, although both have denied that version of events.
Minaj wrote Sorry with fellow rapper Nas while recording her fourth album Queen in 2018.
