The Weeknd – Belong To The World
The Weeknd has released a new visual/single for "Belong To The World," the latest cut taken from his forthcoming album Kiss Land, that uses samples from Portishead's "Machine Gun." Despite an impressive song/visual, there lies an issue. The sample is unsanctioned and Portishead's own Geoff Barrow went on to Twitter to express his frustrations:
"When someone asks to sample you and you refuse they should have the respect as a fellow artist to not use it."
