It seems to have been sampled into Lose You to Love Me by Selena Gomez.
The beat was sampled in Harder Better Faster Stronger by Daft Punk with a new intensity taken though eventually the vocal lines of that got sampled in Stronger by Kanye West. R.I.P. Edwin.
Resampled into Disco Inferno (Burn Baby Burn) by the Trammps. Yet her song Music collaborated with the Trammps' song in her Confessions Tour. Thanks to the lead singer James T. Ellis for starting one of the 1st disco bands & inspiring her. R.I.P. James T. Ellis.

Resampled Super Freak by Rick James & got resampled into Dance A$$ by Big Sean ft. Nicki Minaj (who finally retired from rapping & music).
The melody was sampled in DEV’s In the Dark for example. Though Madagascar intentionally did their version for the movie franchise.
Ralph breaks the internet should have won an oscar for this song
The intro of Gimme More was sampled in Scream & Shout by Will.I.Am.
It seemed while it sampled her older song Love Profusion it was unknowingly sampled in Seal’s Amazing. Like how does one not know he/she’s sampling a song in another? He’s his own thing though Madonna has sampled songs from other artists for sure.
Yet a sample has to be legally done because ripping off other artists is ‘the right & is stealing their work.
It was sampled in Hollywood Express by Harvey Mill 2 though Disturbia by Rihanna has an identical beat.
