I’m 15 seconds in.. yeah if they got Robin Thicke, they can get Normani too.. it’s too close to that Aaliyah song
The vibe is so obvious with this one, I can sing the chorus to one in a million perfectly with the Normani beat…The Robin Thicke song was a bigger stretch than this.

Hip-Hop Since '79
EDIT: Blackground (his label) owns her masters

He should just file a lawsuit if he has a case, we all know he doesn't really give a shxt about Aaliyah and never did.
He's only hurt about the potential 9 figures he missed out on because of Aaliyah's untimely death. There is a reason most her music aint on streaming platforms. He tryna get them to pay him a lot of money to make it available, but it just aint worth it

It's not the same beat, and not even that close. Also no cricket samples in the background which is a key element of the One in a Million beat. Melody's totally different and Normani doesn't use Aaliyah's vocal cadence.

Not seeing it with this one.
Bullshyt. The beat is a complete ripoff of the One in a million” beat. Ole vanilla ice ass nikka .:hhh:

He allegedly sold her catalogue to a Jewish company and they own it.

the article states:

He says ... "I will not stand in the way of something that brings to light the incredible staying power of Aaliyah. So in that light, wishing Normani well with the song and overall career. God bless. I think Aaliyah would be pleased."

An attorney for Blackground confirmed with us that the Aaliyah sample was never officially cleared for use, HOWEVER ... Normani's team insists that "Wild Side" doesn't actually use a direct sample.

That’s still a dangerous game. Who knows if his feelings will change? What if timbaland and missy have a change in feelings? Open yourself up to a lawsuit Brehettes.

This is something only producers would really here probably. I hear it when people say to listen for it. But if nobody ever mentioned One In A Million,I probably wouldn't have heard it.
