No sample cleared

Nice & Smooth - We Are No. 1
(From Nice & Smooth album; 1989)



Dunno if anybody else has noticed this, but Nice & Smooth's We Are No. 1 seems to have been removed from all streaming services. Why couldn't God have taken Something I Can't Explain instead, right? Think of We Are No. 1 as one of the first successful attempts at Boom-Wop, just don't think of calling the lawyers representing Joe Cocker's estate.

Anybody else got any examples of random songs from rap albums which have been removed from streaming services due to sample clearance?

I'll never pay for streaming until they get the De La and Beatnuts catalogues

Streaming services? Cus you're a 14 year old girl? And then you wonder why your favorite rappers are broke and there's no good new rap.

Must have or it wouldn't be any of the streaming/retail sites, I imagine.
