Beyoncé Being Sued By Hungarian Singer?

Beyoncé is being sued by a Hungarian singer for
allegedly using a sample from her song for her
massive hit, ‘Drunk In Love’.
Monika Miczura, also known as Mitsou, has
reportedly served a lawsuit to the R&B superstar
for sampling her 1995 track ‘Bajba Bajba Pelem’
on a version of her single without getting
permission.
The lawsuit says: ‘Mitsou’s voice was sampled and
digitally manipulated without her permission.
‘[The sampling is used] to evoke foreign eroticism
alongside the sexually intense lyrics performed by
Beyoncé and Jay Z in ‘Drunk in Love.’
The Grammy-nominated track – which also
features Beyoncé’s husband, Jay Z rapping –
features on the singer’s self-titled 5th studio
album which was released last year, and despite
being available for the last 12 months, the angry
musician wants damages and has requested for
the song to be banned until her voice is removed.
Later in the lawsuit, the Hungarian singer’s
lawyers explain how her voice has been illegally
used throughout a considerable portion of the
track.
It reads: ‘In the video, Mitsou’s solo vocal
introduction follows 57 seconds of a cinematic,
intimate scene of beach at night. Following
Mitsou’s stirring featured solo vocal introduction,
Mitsou’s voice continues to sing as Beyoncé
begins to sing.
‘All together, Mitsou’s vocals are featured for over
one-and-a-half minutes of the five-and-one-half
minute song. Mitsou has never signed any
documents that would permit anyone to use her
voice for advertising or trade purposes.’
The news comes just a week after a lawsuit
against Jay Z was thrown out of court, following
TufAmerica’s claims the 45-year-old rapper had
used an uncleared single word sample from Eddie
Bo’s 1969 song ‘Hook & Sling Part 1′ in his 2009
hit, ‘Run This Town’.
