Is this an instance of clout chasing or does she deserve her $5 million?
TMZ is reporting that Abel and the French electronic duo are being sued for at least $5 million for stealing the blueprint to “Starboy.” The claims are being made by an artist named Yasminah as she writes that her song “Hooyo” contains the skeletal foundation of Weeknd’s hit. It is written in the legal documents that the similarities are “obvious to the ear,” claiming that they share the same hook, key, and tempo. Yasminah also says that there’s a clap on the second and fourth beat that is identical to the one in her track.
The singer is currently suing Weeknd and Daft Punk for at least $5 million in damages. Do you think “Starboy” borrows from “Hooyo” after listening to both?
