Kingston, Jamaica – News emerged in March that a Copyright Lawsuit was filed in New York against American Pop artist Miley Cyrus claiming her 2013 hit “We Can’t Stop” used the lyric “we run things, things nuh run we” without permission from its owner Michael May who performs under the name Flourgon.
“We Can’t Stop” was the lead track from Cyrus’ 2013 album “Bangerz” co-written and produced by Mike Will Made-It, P-Nasty and Rock City. In the lawsuit, Flourgon is accusing Miley and her label, RCA Records, of misappropriating his lyrics and profiting from the same.
In this first video interview since the lawsuit was filed, Flourgon’s legal team explained the basis for the lawsuit and the hefty 300 million claim for punitive damages.
In the interview, the lawyers claim bias on the part of Cyrus and her production team as they gave credit to two other American artists Doug E. Fresh and Slick Rick for the use of a variation of their iconic 1985 hit “La Di Da Di” but not Flourgon for his “We run things, thing nuh run we”.
