Singer Grimes in favor of her voice being used in songs generated by artificial intelligence
Canadian singer Grimes on Monday said she was in favor of having her voice used to generate songs with the help of artificial intelligence, provided that the creators give her half of the rights to new tracks.
The 35-year-old songwriter, producer and performer explained that this sharing of rights would be equivalent to collaborating “with any artist” , in a message posted on Instagram.
“Feel free to use my voice without restriction,” she insisted. “I have no label or legal obligations” vis-à-vis a third party, record company or distributor, she assured.
The artist's message of electronic music with a crystal-clear voice was posted online a few days after the publication, by an anonymous TikTokeur, of a real fake duet between Canadian singers Drake and The Weeknd, generated using artificial intelligence.
Streamed millions of times, “Heart on my Sleeve” was removed from TikTok a few days after it was posted, at the request of Universal Music, the two singers' label.
Since the introduction , at the end of November, from the chatbot ChatGPT, the debate rages around the data used to generate new content and respect for intellectual property.
Grimes is the former companion of Elon Musk, with whom she had two children, one of them by surrogate.
The entrepreneur has an ambivalent attitude towards artificial intelligence, which he said could lead to the “destruction of civilization” , but in which he invests heavily.
