He says he worked with French producer Mirwais on an early version of the song.
Casey Spooner -- one-half of the recently-disbanded electroclash duo Fischerspooner -- is claiming credit on Madonna's single “God Control," saying he co-wrote on an early version of the Madame X track with French producer Mirwais but isn't getting any cut of profits.
“I’ve been dealing with this for 5 months and I’m over it," Spooner wrote in an Instagram post on Saturday. "I have played nice and been very patient but time is up!”
In Spooner's Instagram Stories he offered further details, saying he was originally hired by Mirwais to do work on a song for the French producer’s solo album. That project was later shelved and Spooner said he was shocked to hear the work he had done on the track -- which included cleaning up the producer’s lyrics and adding an additional melody -- pop up in “God Control."
