Disco Artist Sampled In Daft Punk’s “One More Time” Says He Hasn’t Received A Dime

Eddie Johns, the disco artist behind the song “More Spell on You” that’s sampled on Daft Punk’s “One More Time,” said he hasn’t received any royalties from the pop hit.
Daft Punk‘s “One More Time” is one of the duo’s most beloved and successful hit songs. Released in 2000, the track continues to be timeless decades later and is a testament to their legacy as influential electronic dance music figures amid their breaking up earlier this year.

But a part of what makes “One More Time” what it is, is a sample of Eddie Johns’ “More Spell on You.” Well, in a recent report from the Los Angeles Times, the disco artist shared that he hasn’t seen a dime from royalties for being sampled on the song. Johns made “More Spell on You” back in 1979 but his career never took off. Fast forward to 2000, and the song resurfaced as a sample on “One More Time.” Unfortunately, Johns wasn’t credited on Discovery, the album that the hit single appeared on.
