Juice WRLD‘s breakout single, “Lucid Dreams,” contains a reworked sample from Sting’s 1993 classic track “Shape of My Heart.” On Saturday (November 17th) Nick Mira, who produced “Lucid Dreams,” called out Sting on Twitter. In the tweet, which has since been deleted, Mira wrote:
Fuck @OfficialSting and his WHOLE team. After taking 85% of Lucid Dreams (for interpolating Shape of My Heart, NOT EVEN sampling) he threatened to take us to court for trying to get any %.
A day after that tweet, Juice WRLD — who is probably making a lot more money than Mira due to touring — responded by writing that he was satisfied with the impact the song has had.
He also stated that there was more money to be made.
Last month, Sting talked to Billboard about the song. He called the track a “beautiful interpretation that is faithful to the original song’s form.” He also added that the song, which reached number two on the Billborad Hot 100, will “put my grandkids through college.”
Sting has also worked “Lucid Dreams” into his set, performing the chorus when he does “Shape of My Heart.”
