Over the course of the past few weeks, the internet has exploded with remixes of Cardi B's rant about the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Due to their popularity, several of the songs, including a remix by a DJ named iMarkkeyz, made their way near the top of the iTunes U.S. songs chart.

However, it seems as though the "I Like It" rapper has one request if the songs are to continue being available for fans.

According to Rolling Stone, the dance track eventually caught the eye of Cardi herself after the song started being used in various TikTok videos and was heard playing in a Rio De Janeiro club.

After noticing the remix, the musician then wrote on Instagram that she felt as though she was entitled to royalties.

However, it has been stated that "Coronavirus" likely presented copyright issues due to the fact that any sound in a recording belongs to the maker of said clip. That is not always necessarily set in stone though, as stated by the outlet, due to the fact that "it is common for a record label to put a clause in a contract with an artist that claims 'all recordings by the artist' as the label’s property."

Deborah Mannis-Gardner, who specializes in music clearances for film, television, samples, and new technology, initially speculated that Cardi's label, Atlantic, could treat it as "a remix and claim 100 percent ownership of the master, and then pay the producer a royalty." However, it has been reported that iMarkkeyz confirmed that he has been in contact with Cardi B’s management team regarding the future of the viral song.
