She's one of the most talented songwriters ever

 

Imagine writing Unbreak my Heart and Because You Loved Me by yourself :jonnycat:

multiple samples, producers getting writing credit

 

she has written the same song for the past 30 years so I understand this having to be explained to her

2022 and people still shaming sampling or the act of handing credit to other people so they can have a share of the royalties: something very common in hip-hop and r&b. I’d rather hand a credit than a lawsuit

 

pop music has been sample-driven for more than diane’s career. she should know that there’s space for all types of songwriters. a lot of older acts are lucky that during pre-sampling they could just lift melodies from contemporary and traditional artists and play with them enough to not credit these original artists. many rockstars were guilty of it…

She is tough cookie, if she wrote the song, there’s no way you can sneak your name on the credits, no one can pull a beyonce on her.

This isn't the shade y'all think it is, but someone needs to educate this clueless woman.

I mean she is right regardless of sampling, 24+ is a lot of writers for one song. That number is only acceptable for an album, because that it is an entire classroom of writers. 

 

And not y'all girls trying to shade, all she has created classics like Unbreak my Heart and Because You Loved Me, songs that have transcend generations and were created by herself. 

 

The issue isn't that having help is bad, the best songs had at least some help. No it is the fact that is weird for one song to have that many writers, which signals that the artist barely put any or if not zero input into the song. 1/24 is 0.042% so only 4.2% of the work was done by the original artist on one song.

she's right though, how do some songs require 10+ writers? especially when most of them are basic songs
