Skylar Gudasz also asserted that her 2020 song “Femme Fatal” had a significant contribution to the rapper’s 2022 song “Blue Chills.” In fact, Gudasz claimed in her legal action that if things had gone according to plan, he and his staff might have avoided the entire scenario. She reportedly received upfront payments and ongoing income for the sample, which included a 50% copyright share for publication, from French’s team. Gudasz claimed that the song was released despite the fact that the transaction was never finalized.
