The sisters’ reposted a clip of West performing the song on their Instagram page with the message “Thanks so much for the love man, we are thankful our music is still encouraging generations” @twinkieclark @thelegendaryclarksisters We Own the Rights to this music.”

According to entertainment site BOSSIP, “Kanye would have to reach out the the Sisters’ publisher for clearance to perform the songs as covers AND the Coachella venue would have to have general performing rights licensing in order for him to perform the music there. So it sounds like Mr. West will be cutting checks soon to the Clark sisters.”
