Top 10 Worst Song Samples of 2023After 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?
Not only is Meghan Trainor more obnoxious than ever on this track, she also ruined a 1950s classic: "Mr. Sandman"
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!
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)".
Rita Ora ruined "Praise You" and turned it into trash.
A terrible remix of "Jump Around" by House of Pain.
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.
This song is cannibalized by its "Better Off Alone" sample.
