Mylie Cyrus faces a $300 million lawsuit from a Jamaican singer/song writer Micheal May who claims that Mylie’s hit “we cant stop” is too similar to his song which he wrote 25 years ago in 1998.
The Jamaican singer is suing Mylie for copyright infringement, according to May Cyrus along with RCA records owes the basis of its chart topping popularity to and its highly lucrative success to plaintiff May’s protected, unique, creative and original content”.
In 2013, “we cant stop” was one of the most popular songs and May waited five years to actually sue Mylie who was born almost the same time he released the song. May alongside his lawyers argue that around 50% of “we cant stop” is based off “we run things”, a song that reached no.1 in Jamaica at the time of its production.
The entire lawsuit is based on a certain lyrics in Mylie Cyrus songs, the lyric reads thus “we run things, things no run we”, in a legal document released by people, May lay claims that the lyric is similar to a line in his song.
We are certainly going to see how this plays out as it would change a lot of things in the music industry if this suit goes in the favor of the Jamaican singer, May.
