Beyoncé, Jay Z, Timbaland Face Lawsuit for ‘Drunk In Love’

Beyonce Drunk In Love

Beyoncé’s 2013 song “Drunk in Love” features hubby Jay Z, but according to one Hungarian singer, the hit song was partially ripped off from her.

In a lawsuit obtained by E! News, Mitsou– real name Mónika Juhász Miczura–alleges that Beyoncé, Jay Z, and producer Timbaland used her vocals from the song “Bajba, Bajba Pelem” at the start of “Drunk in Love.” The suit claims that the eerie voice heard at the opening of the song is a distorted version of her voice.

“Following Mitsou’s stirring featured solo vocal introduction, Mitsou’s voice continues to sing as Beyoncé begins to sing, to evoke foreign eroticism alongside the sexually intense lyrics performed by Beyoncé and Jay Z in ‘Drunk in Love’,” the suit says.

“Mitsou has never signed any documents that would permit anyone to use her voice for advertising or trade purposes,” the lawsuit reads. “Mitsou’s voice was sampled and digitally manipulated without her permission… All together, Mitsou’s vocals are featured for over 1.5 minutes of the 5.5-minute song.”

The lawsuit is seeking damages and also a court order prohibiting anyone from playing the song with her voice.
