Elley duhe’s song [middle of the night](https://youtu.be/Ky1dduzoEe0) has literally the beggining of [asturias](https://youtu.be/inBKFMB-yPg) in it, did she buy the song or something?

Pick a song
Use pro tools(or some other music editing program) to isolate just the music (from the vocals)
Use your program of choice to record a sample (small clip of preferred music)
Save sample in one track of your music program
Record your vocals on another track

It depends on how much is used. There are things that are simple enough that they can’t be copyright protected. A set of 4 chords wouldn’t be protected but the specific pattern, tempo they are played can be. If she didn’t license it or give credit, it’s possible that piece of the song isn’t protectable.
