    What album was released 3.5 years ago? Oh you mean Duas debut ?

        • Seeing Madonna's speech on AIDS reminded me why i am proud of that woman. One of the biggest LGBT allies of all time. I'm glad that all my friends love and respect Madonna. In fact most people in Turkey loves and respects her, she's probably the biggest foreign solo act here.

                                  No problem, generally there are sample writers included when you have that many, but I mean you are still using their work so they rightfully have to be credited as songwriters.

                                    • Agreed, writers of samples should get their due in the credits - I would limit it to adapting actual lyrics though as I don't see the point in them getting songwriters' credit if you just take the melody or instrumental.
                                      By the way: Since 'Hold Up' got mentioned: Ever since having seen the music video, I loved the idea of walking through the streets, destroying things while smiling like a maniac while music plays in the background. Not sure whether a yellow dress would suit me though .

                                              You should open a news thread in the news section... bc it is new worthy that after almost 40 years... Thriller was dethroned as the biggest selling album of all times. I guess all times... doesn't mean much. I hope she can keep the title and isn't surpassed soon by one of those streaming newbies.

                                                How do you mean ? Writing a song is not just lyrics. The melody or instrumental also has to be written and that is generally what is sampled. People rarely sample or reuse lyrics, although it does happen sometimes. However, It you reuse an already written melody of course the person who wrote that melody or instrumental should be credited as a songwriter. IT is their copyright property. You cannot just reuse someone's copyright property as you wish without giving due credit.

                                                  "....... BOMT is 14x diamond which means it sold 14 million in the US, diamond only is the title of you sell 10 million or more copies , 1x diamond doesn’t exist"

                                                  Five mins later -

                                                  " RIAA is american certifications, britney sold more but it’s still certified 14x diamond which means 14 million , just like oops is 10x diamond which means 10 million copies "
