In today’s episode we’re about to ruin your favorite song. Or perhaps, you’re going to discover things you never knew about your favorite artists. Instead of the usual episode where we uncover one cover, this time we’ll be taking a look at the fascinating world of music sampling, or as MoTown bass player David Shields once said: “We are all Vanilla Ice. All art is theft”.

We’ll go from the 1940s in France where sampling was invented, to the 1980s in New York where sampling developed and we’ll take a look at some of the most successful songs that have samples in them, and have become number one. From The Beatles, to Drake, to Beyoncé, to Shakira, to Lil Nas X, Queen and everything in between.
