Cardi B is being sued for $50 Million for Enough

Cardi B is apparently being sued for $50 Million for her 2024 track “Enough (Miami)”. I spent a few minutes listening to both tracks. Not much more. The bass lines are quite similar. I would not recommend listening to “Enough” with your kids around.

According to docs obtained by TMZ Hip Hop, Joshua Fraustro and Miguel Aguilar (AKA Kemika 1956) claim Cardi and Co. used portions of their 2021 song “Greasy Frybread” on her track without permission. –Read more at TMZ

The Rolling Stones are being sued

I think the most shocking part of this post is that The Rolling Stones are still around.  Anyway, back in 2020 during the height of COVID lockdown the Stones recorded a song called “Living In A Ghost Town”. Some guy named Sergio Garcia Fernandez wrote a few songs back in 2006/2007 that he had personally shared with a family member of the Jagger’s.  I learned all of this from Yahoo!

The least exciting part about this is how mediocre the music is. I admittedly don’t spend very much time passing judgement on quality of music on this website but, well, have a listen. Do they sound very similar? Can you even spend the time listening when there is so much other great music to listen to?

Also, for whatever reason when I google “Rolling Stones Members” Mick Jagger is listed as “Harmonica”

Justin Bieber Sued For “10,000 Hours”

According to WhiskeyRiff.com Dan + Shay and Justin Bieber and getting sued. Turns out the track “10,000 Hours” sounds a lot like a song originally written in 1973 and eventually recorded in 2014.

A copyright infringement lawsuit was filed in California this week against Dan + Shay and Justin Bieber, along with their fellow songwriters, publishers and record labels, alleging that they copied their 2019 hit “10,000 Hours” from a 1973 song, “The First Time Baby Is A Holiday.”

The lawsuit, a copy of which was obtained by Whiskey Riff, was filed by International Manufacturing Concepts, Melomega Music and Sound Gems, the company that owns the copyright to “First Time.” In the complaint, Melomega alleges that the song was written in 1973 by Palmer Rakes and Frank Fioravanti, and was registered with the US Copyright Office in 1980.

“First Time” was first recorded in 2014, and the copyright for the sound recording of that song was registered with the Copyright Office later that year. It was then released in September 2014, and was then released on three different albums by Melomega’s Sound Gems Records label in 2017 and 2019. The song was distributed by The Orchard, a distributor owned by Sony.

Have a listen!
