Usher’s “caught up” in a copyright lawsuit. A group of songwriters is suing the singer, accusing him of stealing the song that became the hit single “Caught Up.”Â Zacharia L. Edwards, Mitch Moses, and Vince McLean filed the suit on September 7th. The trio is seeking an undetermined amount of damages. According to allhiphop.com, the three claim they wrote the musical composition for “Caught Up” and that they played the track for Arista Records rep Michael Barackman in 2002.
The trio says when Usher’s hit album “Confessions” was released in 2004, there were “substantial similarities to the original version.”
According to court documents, “an ordinary lay observer could listen to the two musical compositions at issue, and given the theme, melody, hook, lyrics and chorus, reasonably find that the two songs are substantially similar and that a friend and infringement has occurred.”
Here’s the hit song I thought Usher made… LOL
