Justin Bieber is being sued for allegedly stealing vocal Riffs in his massive hit “Sorry.”
Justin Bieber‘s apology’s tour has hit another bump in the road. Will JB have to say “Sorry”?
After JB’s canceled meet-and-greets and spoke out against award shows, the pop singer is now being sued by an indie artist who claims “Sorry” uses an unauthorized element that is from one of her songs. Can Bieber catch a break? Apparently not.
Songwriter Casey Dienel, whose stage name is White Hinterland, is bringing on the lawsuit against Bieber for stealing a vocal riff in her song “Ring the Bell” and using it in his hit song “Sorry.” White Hinterland’s song begins with a loop of four notes that sounds a lot like the loop that features throughout “Sorry.” Although, it doesn’t like Bieb’s single samples her recording of the song.
Dienel is also suing producers Skrillex and Blood, as well as the song’s co-writers Justin Tranter and Julia Michaels.
Skrillex recently went on social media to react to the lawsuit, writing, “Sorry but we didn’t steal this” alongside with a video showing a begin-the-scenes form JB’s and Skrillex’s recording session.
Justin Bieber has yet to comment on anything.
The indie singer also claims the hit song “Sorry” uses synthesizers, samples, synth bass, drums, and percussion that sound similar to the those used in “Ring the bell.”
Dienel also says she tried to reach out to Justin Bieber to discuss a potential resolution but was “ignored.” Diesel is suing for unspecified damages, including profits from “Sorry,” which has been viewed more than 1.4 million times on YouTube.
