According to a Florida lawsuit, his "Party Ain't a Party" lyrics are identical to ones sung by another artist
Less than a week after Jamie Foxx released his first new song in four years, the Oscar winning actor and musician is being dragged into court over the release.
The lawsuit filed by Nontra Records on Thursday against Foxx, DJ Mustard and 2 Chainz over "Party Ain't a Party," is a rather atypical copyright lawsuit that centers on the accusation that an instrumental was first given to another artist, J Rand.
According to the complaint, DJ Mustard sent the instrumental to J Rand's then record company Poe Boy Music Group to serve as underlying material for a J Rand release. The latter artist then recorded the work on his own accord — and Poe Boy "possessed sole ownership in the copyright of the sound recording."
