Miley Cyrus sued for $300 million for allegedly stealing 'We Can't Stop'
May's "We Run Things" has the refrain "We run things, things no run we", which he claims Cyrus knowingly stole in her song when she says "We run things, things don't run we".
According to legal documents first obtained by The Blast, Caribbean songwriter Michael May, who performs under the name Flourgon, has sued the singer in NY federal court.
May's specific complaints include an assertion that "We Can't Stop" has a "substantially similar hook" to "We Run Things".
Jamaican songwriter Michael May (who goes by the stage name Flourgon) filed the $300 million United States dollars suit yesterday (March 13) in Manhattan, claiming that Cyrus's hit ripped off his 1988 song "We Run Things".
Singer Miley Cyrus performs during the 2018 MusiCares Person of the Year show honoring Fleetwood Mac at Radio City Music Hall in Manhattan, New York, U.S., January 26, 2018.
One of the biggest names in dancehall during the 1980s, Flourgon made a name with songs like We Run Things, Bounce, Big Batty Gal and Love Mi Lover Bad. "Things no run we", a phrase May claims to have coined.
Representatives for the singer and Sony did not respond to requests for comment.
The song reached No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
This lawsuit is no party in the United States of America for the singer. The 25-year-old singer - whose single hit the number one spot in the United Kingdom when it was released in 2013 - has been accused of stealing the track by a Jamaican musician, who is seeking to stop all further performances and sales.
