Top 10 Worst Song Samples of 2023

After 2022, it looks like 2023 will be yet another year of gimmicky samples and artists ruining classic hits. What do you think are the worst song samples of 2023?
The Top Ten
1 Mother - Meghan Trainor

Not only is Meghan Trainor more obnoxious than ever on this track, she also ruined a 1950s classic: "Mr. Sandman"

2 Let's Ride (Trailer Anthem) - YG & The Notorious B.I.G.

Someone here had the audacity to sample the piano riff from "Notorious Thugs" and wash it up to death. Not only does it sink a song that is already baseline mediocre, it's also a huge disrespect of Biggie's legacy, so please let the man rest!

3 Baby Don't Hurt Me - David Guetta, Anne-Marie & Coi Leray

After the smash success of "I'm Good (Blue)", David Guetta phones it in by lazily sampling Haddaway's "What Is Love", one of the greatest dance tracks of all time, and not changing the chorus. Congratulations David Guetta, you managed to make a song worse than "I'm Good (Blue)".

4 Praising You - Rita Ora

Rita Ora ruined "Praise You" and turned it into trash.

5 California Girl - Crash Adams
6 Jumpin - Pitbull & Lil Jon

A terrible remix of "Jump Around" by House of Pain.

7 Airplanes - Adam Ulanicki
8 Crying on the Dancefloor - Sam Feldt, Jonas Blue & Dzeko

And now we have not one, not two but THREE DJs riding David Guetta's coattails by lazily sampling "Better Off Alone", another classic 90s dance track that producers can't get enough of. This is pure EDM laziness at its most obnoxious and insulting.

9 Alone Again - Chico Rose
10 Swag Like Ohio, Pt. 2 - Trippie Redd & Lil B
The Contenders
11 Hot Inn Heree - Yuno Miles
12 Hey, Mickey! - Baby Tate & Saweetie
13 Alone - Kim Petras

This song is cannibalized by its "Better Off Alone" sample.

14 If Looks Could Kill - Destroy Lonely
15 Back Homë - Yeat
16 Remote Control - Babytron
17 Upnow - DD Osama
18 Dogs - IShowSpeed & Kai Cenat
