Former N-dubz first lady Tulisa Contostavlos is suing American music sensation Will.i.am over the hit song ‘Scream & Shout’. The Britney Spears and Will duet has raked in 100 million YouTube views and is the best-selling single of 2013 so far in the UK.
News has it that Tulisa is fuming that the song she initially worked on was nabbed by Will and Britney. Tulisa was working on the track with producer Jean Baptiste when the Black Eyed Peas hit maker took it and made it his own; changing its name from ‘I Don’t Give A F**k’ to ‘Scream and Shout’.
Tulisa believes she is entitled to a writing credit as she wrote some of the lyrics; apparently one of the lines she wrote is Britney’s “When you hear this in the club, you’d better turn this s*** up.”
If Tulisa wins, it might see her winning some impressive sum of cheddar. The fact that the song is getting so much attention is not helping at all. I wonder what would have happened if it wasn’t a hit? I bet everyone like to associate with success; at least this time someone might be getting paid.
