Lizzo is under fire for potential copyright infringement.
90s hitmaker CeCe Peniston, took to Instagram on Friday (Oct. 18) to accuse the “Juice” rapper of copying her ad-libs from Peniston’s 1992 tune, “Finally.”
“this is a clear example of #copyrightinfringement Cece Peniston versus @lizzobeeating y’all check this out and btw I love her music,” Peniston wrote, alongside a video comparing the two songs.
R&B singer-songwriter India.Arie commented on the post in support, writing, “I thought she interpolated it intentionally and paid you for it. I hate that ANY one would not automatically KNOW this IS a signature of yours. Clearly. But as musicians i guess we hear it more clearly.”

The accusation comes following two others by songwriters for the opening line of “Truth Hurts.” Justin Raisen, compared it to a single called “Healthy” that he allegedly wrote with Lizzo in 2017. Both feature the lyric, “I just took a DNA test, turns out I’m 100 percent that bitch.”
In early 2018, British singer Mina Lioness, claimed she first tweeted the line a year prior.
