Beyonce Wanted In Court?!
Superstar Beyoncé is in the news again, but this time, she’s the center of a $20 million lawsuit – ouch!
According to Forbes, Queen Bey may be in hot water for sampling the voice of the late Youtuber Anthony Barre, also known as “Messy Mya”.
As the story goes, a few of the lyrics in question were from Barre’s “Booking the Hoes From New Wildings” and “A 27 Piece Huh”.
The lyrics and voice sample in question are, “What happened at New Orleans” and “B***h, I’m back by popular demand”.
The estate is claiming that Queen Bey never received permission for them to use the lyrics, nor has the estate received credit or payment.
It may be hard for Bey to dispute it because both recordings sound the exact same. She may have to settle out of court.
This is NOT the way to kick off the year.
