Pop Star Dua Lipa Sued Over Her Hit Song "Levitating"

British Pop star Dua Lipa is reportedly being sued for her smash hit song, “Levitating,” by a band called Artikal Sound System, TMZ reports.

According to the report, the band Artikal Sound System filed suit against the pop star Dua Lipa who’s absolutely blown up over the past couple of years of the pandemic with the help of her new album, and this track by extension one that’s dominated the charts and streaming game.

Unfortunately for the singer, these guys are claiming she ripped off the catchy tune from their own reggae song, “Live Your Life,” which they dropped in 2017 to some notable success.

This is a simple allegation of copyright infringement. According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, Artikal simply states pop star Dua Lipa and her team heard their earworm pre-2020 (when they started writing “Levitating”) and trotted out a carbon copy.

There’s nothing laid out in their claim to explain *why* they believe that to be the case but presumably, that’ll get hashed out in court as this thing plays out.

According to the report by TMZ, the two songs do sound awfully similar, especially the chorus. Different lyrics, obviously, but the beat comes across as damn near the same and Artikal obviously felt strong enough about this to sue.

In addition to Dua herself, Artikal has named Warner Records (her label) and others as defendants and they’re asking for any profits they may have made off of “Levitating,” plus damages.
