The Weeknd & Daft Punk Sued For Stealing 'Starboy'.
A Somalian singer is suing Daft Punk and The Weeknd for 5 million dollars. She says they stole their huge hit 'Starboy' from her song from 2009. Yasminah says they stole the music from her song called 'Hooyo'.
When you think about it, how ironic is this?
A Somalian is accusing a Canadian and a French duo of being pirates!
Compare them, then prepare to be blown away by some interesting that flips the case upside down and inside out.
Here's Yasminah's song from 2009.
Beats: similar? Melody: same?
Guess what? The producers of 'Hooyo' already threatened a lawsuit and were given an undisclosed settlement! Isn't that sort of an admission? Or Abel and the Robots just wanted to avoid court and legal fees.
But the singer, Yasminah, never got a cut from that settlement. That's why she's suing. Hmmmm.
