“Got ‘til It’s Gone” is a song by American singer Janet Jackson, featuring American rapper Q-Tip and Canadian singer Joni Mitchell. It was released as the lead single from Jackson’s sixth studio album, The Velvet Rope (1997).

The song is notable for its use of a sample from Joni Mitchell’s song “Big Yellow Taxi”, which originally appeared on her 1970 album, Ladies of the Canyon. English singer Des’ree would later sue Jackson, stating that her 1991 single, “Feel so High” was sampled on “Got ‘til It’s Gone”. Subsequent releases containing the track would credit Des’ree as a co-writer.
