Chapman is suing Minaj for copyright infringement over Minaj’s song, “Sorry,” which Chapman says incorporates lyrics and melody from her 1988 song “Baby Can I Hold You.” Chapman says she repeatedly refused Minaj’s request to sample her song.

Chapman is seeking unspecified damages, and she wants an order to prevent the song from being released commercially. Minaj’s representatives could not be reached for comment.—SEAN COMBS DONATES $1 MILLION TO BRONX SCHOOLNEW YORK (AP) — Sean “Diddy” Combs says his goal is not to just teach kids how to read, write and compute, but “how to make a difference and nurture them to be future leaders of our generation.” That’s why he’s donating a million dollars to Capital Preparatory Schools as it opens a new location in the Bronx. The schools are already in Harlem and in Bridgeport, Conn. They give high-quality education to students in historically disadvantaged areas. The school will open in September for 160 students in 6th and 7th grade.—DAN AND SHAY: OUR CAREERS CHANGED BECAUSE OF “TEQUILA”NASHVILLE (AP) — What a difference “Tequila” has made to Dan and Shay.
