In sue-happy America, we have another lawsuit over copied music. Writer Alex Griggs alleges that Ariana Grande’s song “One Last Time”, which was written by David Guetta, is a rip off “Takes All Night”, performed by Skye Stevens. Supposedly, cease and desist letters were sent and no progress has been made. She is now suing Grande, Guetta and UMG (Universal Music Group) for $150k and asking them to stop making profits from the song.
This is not the first time we’ve seen a case like this and in today’s age of sampling, it definitely won’t be the last. In fact, earlier this year, Guetta was accused of ripping off Gesaffelstein’s “Pursuit” on his track “The Death of EDM”. Check out both songs below and judge for yourself.
