Copyright infringement in the music industry can be tricky sometimes. While some songs accidentally sound like others, many hit tracks we know have actually used samples or riffs from older records without attributing proper credit, which can get artists in legal trouble. We also must consider, of course, that not all accusations are based in truth.
Ariana Grande is the latest singer under fire. Songwriter Josh Stone is suing Grande, claiming she lifted the lyrics and melody to 2019's '7 Rings' from his 2017 song 'You Need It, I Got It.'
