She thinks the song is a rip-off of her previous work, particularly the beginning instrumental.
In an effort to catch his attention, Madonna commented in a public remark from her own verified Instagram account on one of Tory Lanez’s latest Instagram posts, indicating that she had attempted to reach him privately about his new music “Pluto’s Last Comet,” which sounds similar to “Into the Groove.”
“Read your messages [for] illegal usage of my song get into the groove,” the Queen of Pop composed under the rapper’s post. It’s unknown whether he has received Madonna’s message or reacted to her since she left a remark on his page.
Madonna and Stephen Bray wrote and produced “Into the Groove,” which originally appeared in the 1985 film Desperately Seeking Susan, in which the singer played the titular character.
On the other hand, the song “Pluto’s Last Comet,” written by Lanez and produced by Orlando tha Great and Chaz Jackson, was released earlier this month on Lanez’s Alone at Prom project, which was inspired by the 1980s.
Madonna has had issues with a number of rappers in recent weeks aside from him. She slammed 50 Cent for saying she was too old to be sharing suggestive photographs on the internet, labeling his remarks “misogynistic, sexist, and ageist” afterwards.
It’s unclear if Madonna will file a lawsuit against the rapper however, if she chooses this path, Tory will find himself in another serious legal danger as he has also made news in December for allegedly shooting Megan Thee Stallion in 2020.
As previously reported by TMZ, a policeman testified earlier this month that TL said “Dance bitch, dance!” while shooting rounds at the ground near Megan’s feet, hurting her.

Never thought I’d see a Tory lanez vs Madonna stan war.— fiorucci ❦ (@PENTHOUSEVIRGIN) December 27, 2021
The real story is Megan Thee Stallion identified Tory Lanez as the person who shot her and he’s still out here releasing shit albums with stolen Madonna samples because nobody’s about to take a black woman seriously. Why is he not in prison?— Remington Graves (@remingtongraves) December 28, 2021
@madonna could take legal action and have @torylanez’s track Pluto’s Last Comet removed from streaming platforms for ripping off Into The Groove – I really hope she does as it’s her right pic.twitter.com/NWgRYmYgDT— Matt #MadonnaAustralia (@GregvsMatt) December 27, 2021
