Rappers Megan Thee Stallion and Sean Paul, better known as Big Sean, have been sued for alleged
copyright infringement and plagiarism on the song "Go Crazy," released in 2020, Pitchfork reported.
As the site reported, artists Duawn "Go Hard Major" Payne and Harrell "H Matic" James
claim how the song from Good News, the rapper's debut album, bears many similarities to 2012's "Krazy,".
In legal documents seen by Pitchfork, the suit claims how the title, chorus, text, tempo, melodic sequence, harmonic
sequence, tonal sequence, use of reverb, and use of cadence in Megan Thee Stallion's song are "nearly identical" to their song.
"An average lay observer would recognize the Infringing Work as having been appropriated from the Protected
Work because of the remarkable similarity between the two compositions
and the manner in which they are performed...to exclude the possibility of independent creation," the accusers said in the lawsuit.
Payne and James also claim how Big Sean frequented venues where the music was performed.
The suit also alleges how Sean and Stallion received a cease and desist letter that "in good faith, sought to resolve the issue amicably."
Since being notified of their infringing conduct, Defendants have continued their willful
and reckless disregard of the exclusive copyrights belonging to Plaintiffs, forcing Plaintiffs to initiate this lawsuit.
