Chris Brown Accused of Jacking Beat for ‘Yeah 3x’
Chris Brown may find himself back in legal hot water as a Scottish DJ is accusing him of stealing the beat for his latest single ‘Yeah 3x (Yeah, Yeah, Yeah).’ Calvin Harris is blasting Brown, after noticing striking similarities between his single ‘I’m Not Alone,’ and the track which will appear on Brown’s upcoming ‘F.A.M.E. (Forgiving All My Enemies)’ album.
“Choked on my cornflakes when I heard new Chris Brown single this morning,” Harris wrote on his Twitter page over the weekend, posting a link to the song. “Do you know what I mean?” Within minutes of posting the message, Harris received a slue of negative comments from Brown’s supporters, accusing him of attempting to start controversy to gain notoriety. “Oh wow these Chris Brown fans are amazing!” he wrote. “Search @calvinharris and see some of the replies i’m getting … “
Brown has yet to respond to Harris’ claims but the beat in both songs do sound similar but there is no word yet on whether or not the U.K. singer wants to take legal action.
In the meantime, Breezy has experienced a resurgence in his career, with the release of the song ‘Deuces’ off his and Tyga’s joint mixtape, ‘Fan of a Fan.’ The single has been sitting atop the Billboard Hip-Hop and R&B singles charts. Taking to UStream, Brown announced the “little secret” that Fabolous,T.I., Drake, Kanye West, and Andre 3000 would all appear on the remix to the track. The new version is to surface within the next two weeks.
