Fiona Apple asks Lil Nas X where her money is after he sampled her "Every Single Night" track

Fiona Apple has shared a clip in which she asks Lil Nas X for her money after he sampled her "Every Single Night" track on his 2018 single "Kim Jong".

"Kim Jong" was released before the sensational "Old Town Road" hit, and features a sample of Fiona Apple's 2012 track "Every Single Night".

Apple's new clip appeared on the Fiona Apple Rocks tumblr account, and later uploaded by another Apple fan account on Instagram.

In the video, Apple says, "One thing that the lovely Rachel Handler didn’t mention that I did say in the [Vulture] interview which I would just like to say now is that Lil Nas X - you’re probably really great, but you used my song "Every Single Night", too. You sampled that song, too, in a song called "Kim Jong Un", I think. And, um, hey - where’s my money, you cute little guy? Where’s my money?"

As Pitchfork notes, Lil Nas X's "Kim Jong" song isn't available on streaming services, so it's unclear if the rapper is profiting from the single at all.

On Wednesday (25 September), a rare interview with Fiona Apple was published by Vulture, in which she says she hopes to release a new album by early next year.
