Daft Punk and The Weeknd are currently being sued for allegedly stealing 'Starboy'

music news 19/09/2018

A little known musician is currently amidst a massive lawsuit against Daft Punk and The Weeknd, after accusing them of stealing the track 'Starboy'.

Before we get into the nitty-gritty, here's both the original track that's apparently been stolen, and then Starboy...

  • Hooyo - Yasminah
  • Starboy - Daft Punk & The Weeknd

After that close inspection, it's hard to argue that these tracks aren't reaaaally similar.

The artist Yasminah, who worked on the Hooyo track with two producers, is suing Daft Punk and The Weeknd $5 million after not recieving a cut from the original settled lawsuit from those two producers.

There's no update on which way this lawsuit will sway but hopefully all is fair and well.
