Beyonce, Jay Z & Timbaland Sued Over ‘Drunk in Love’
Without a doubt, Beyonce's 'Drunk in Love' was one of the biggest hits of this year, but it appears the song has gotten the singer into some trouble.
Monika Miczura, stage name Mitsou, said the sped-up voice that you hear in the first few seconds of the song is from a 1995 recording of her cut 'Bajba, Bajba Pelem.'
She claims not only did the artists use her song without permission, they also used it centered around sexual lyrics and imagery -- 'Bajba, Bajba Pelem is a song about hopelessness.
"[Beyonce used it] to evoke foreign eroticism alongside the sexually intense lyrics," Miczura said.
At this point, Miczura is looking for financial compensation and wants a judge to have the song banned from being played as long as her voice is still on it.
So far there's been no word from Bey's camp or when the court case will actually get underway. Could there really be a world without 'Drunk in Love'? Let's hope not.
