Rolling Stone Magazine is reporting that the two have been named in a $10 million copyright infringement claim over “The Biebs” “Somebody to Love,” song.
“According to Copeland (who performs under the name De Rico) and Overton, ‘Somebody to Love’ has the same title, time signature and beat as their original, and shares a similar chord progression and lyrics,” stated Rolling Stone Magazine.
“Bieber’s version, however, is credited to him, songwriter Heather Bright and production team the Stereotypes. Usher reportedly first recorded the song as a demo for his 2010 LP Raymond v. Raymond and ended up recording a remix version with Bieber.”
As legend has it, Bieber who became an Internet and YouTube sensation from uploaded videos featuring him singing, Usher got wind of the Canadian-born crooner and signed him to a contract. He then became a singing sensation.
