Queen and David Bowie vs. Vanilla Ice

Vanilla Ice claimed that the bassline for his 1990 hit “Ice Ice Baby” was not a sample of Queen & David Bowie’s 1981 collaboration “Under Pressure“.

I think we know the answer to this one.

Welcome to “That Song Sounds Like!”

David Bowie & Queen - "Under Pressure" (1981)

Vanilla Ice - "Ice Ice Baby" (1990)

    Wouldn’t have been a big deal if he had just said “Yeah, its a sample. So what? There’s lots of sampling in hip hop.”

    I suppose he realized he would lose a lot of money if he admitted that.
