Ludicrous Lawsuit: Beyonce Sued For Allegedly Copying ‘XO’ Song

Published: Wednesday 5th Nov 2014 by Sam

When sitting on the lofty level of superstardom that Beyonce enjoys, dealing with the ill intent of the steam pressed is a daily duty.

The latest drama to swing the diva’s way is a lawsuit from up and coming singer Javon Lane, who is accusing the Grammy winner of stealing his song.

Full story below…

According to TMZ, the unknown is suing Bey for $3 million dollars over the track ‘XO’ – which was featured on her groundbreaking visual album.

Per the filing, Lane claims he wrote a number named ‘XOXO’ and shared it with another singer who does background vocals for Beyonce, the track supposedly ended up in her hands and a copycat track emerged.

Whether he’s basing his argument on the song title, concept, or its actual composition has been undetermined as of writing. But, in either case, it’s all sorts of nonsense – especially when comparing both cuts…

The struggle is both real and wretched.

We’ll file this under “Elaborate Promo Campaign…Attempts”.

    • King M.J November 5, 2014

      The irony, seeing how you stan for Rihanna, who has been accused multiple times “Even though that’s my girl”.

      • Rihboy November 5, 2014

        Bey has been accused her whole career tho.. Those writing credits are hardly credible!

      • Drunkk in stealing November 5, 2014

        Everything Beyonce does is unoriginal..

  3. KingCalio November 5, 2014

      • realtalk November 5, 2014

        Maybe the suit is for 3 million to be pay to Beyoncé for the lies and of using her name/status. That fool is just that, trying to come up on the Queen’s name/status, don’t kill him Behive’s he did that himself.

    • Brandys Starr November 5, 2014

      Coming from a madonna fan? Hahahaha

    • King M.J November 5, 2014

      Wait, but you Stan for Madonna though, the Queen of “Purloin”.

  5. Oh, so we doing this today? November 5, 2014

  6. Taylor swift number 1 fan!! November 5, 2014

    Swift earns the largest sales week for an album since 2002.

    It’s official: Taylor Swift’s 1989 debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart with the largest sales week for an album since 2002.

    1989 sold 1.287 million copies in the week ending Nov. 2, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

    The Only act ever to have 3 million sellers in a week.

    • XYZ November 5, 2014

      get a life

    • BritneyBtch November 5, 2014

      Opps, Britney still holds the record for most selling album in first week for female artist.. Nice Try

      • CATFISH CAREY November 5, 2014

        HE SAID “SINCE” 2002 HE DIDNT SAY SHE BROKE THE RECORD LEARN TO READ WITH COMPREHENSION OOPS

      • Taylor swifts number 1 fan!! November 5, 2014

        But Britney Spears didn’t release her album, in an era when sales are down 14 percent on last year, and in an era when Taylor already has the best selling album released this year, after a week…

    • Dem Lessors November 5, 2014

      Boy don’t use that tired excuse, in the early 2000 they had to get artists to appeal on TV ads so people wouldn’t record off the radio with their tape recorders. People were reaching number 1 selling at the lowest rates ever. Remember also Taylor was offering discounts for people who bought multiple copies and was selling it for 61p. You tried but cha need to try again.

      • Taylor swifts number 1 fan!! November 6, 2014

        Lmao tape recorders? They have that now, and Youtube and plenty of other ways to download. If you think its easlier down to sell albums, than it was back in 2002..you’re deluded.
        Also the the ones selling for 99 cent didnt count! so I guess you need to try harder!

  7. BeyRihLiyah November 5, 2014

    this guy is out of his mind his whack ass is just looking for a come these two songs are 100% percent different beys X0 is a mid tempo pop ballad and his his song is a autotuned elctro influence r&b song and the lyrics are also 100% different

  8. african music lover November 5, 2014

  10. Sugar&Spice November 5, 2014

    Those songs sound nothing alike, he’s just looking for free promo.

  11. Cliff November 5, 2014

First she claims to write songs which are written by somebody else for her then she changes one or two words to get writing credits now the money hungry w**** is stealing songs from unknowns. Talented my ass this dumb stupid b**** is just a f****** fraud she can’t write s*** to save her life.

  12. Cliff November 5, 2014

    Yeah now she’s releasing a million CD’s in one day so we should see the same damn f****** ass and crotch we’ve been seeing for the last 15 years. It’s all about money. Only dumb f**** will pay $50 for some lame ass videos. We get it you want money and you’re willing to make soft p*** for it. Your music isn’t that special it’s the same trap beats that everybody’s making you’re no icon I don’t remember any legendary or game changing songs its all about paying for awards and HYPE which people fall for. You’re done B****

  13. Cliff November 5, 2014

    And please Put some clothes on GrandMa.

  14. #TeamTinashe Stan “Aquarius” In Stores November 5, 2014

    Yes, this is ludicrous. It doesn’t sound like it at all. Lol.
    The only person that can file a lawsuit against Beyonce and win is singer/songwriter, Anjulie. Her music video came out 2yrs prior Beys “Superpower” and the video concept is a clear ripoff off of a lesser known artist.

  19. Brandys Starr November 5, 2014

    He is reaching. They sound nothing alike. And shouldnt you be blaming Ryan Tedder not Beyonce.

  20. Jewel November 5, 2014

    Mess. He isnt going to win with that struggle attempt for promo.

  21. Cake like Lady GaGa November 5, 2014

    But why is Sam trying to defend THIEFyonce?? I haven’t heard the song, but I know for a fact she did steal the song

    • Jewel November 5, 2014

      And thats why you are dumb. The songs are nothing alike, you dont have to be a fan to admit that.

    • Skyfall November 5, 2014

      Since you know so much, please elaborate why Artpop is platinum.

  22. Davis November 5, 2014

    THE REAAAAAAACH. I MEAN COME ON, IS HE ACTUALLY SERIOUS???

  23. Davis November 5, 2014

    I DONT KNOW WHATS WORSE, HIS ATTEMPT FOR SOME PROMO, OR THOSE ABYSMAL VOCALS.

  24. Yeah I Said It November 5, 2014

    Screaming! This thirst is too real on this Wednesday morning.

  25. I Stan For Myself November 5, 2014

    Wtf? This guy should not have bothered. Why would anyone want to copy that mess. The only thing similar is the title. And even thats not the same.

  26. Mark111 November 5, 2014

    Beyonce ALWAYS taking from someone, but not this time, lol.

  27. Stop hating November 5, 2014

    This is a reach, I have to agree. Actually it’s not a reach, this is simply a delusion

  28. Drunkk in stealing November 5, 2014

    Not surprised at all.Whoever wrote Drunk on Love by Rihanna needs to Sue the thieving witch as well. This is what she does.Steal from low tempo ballads and make them up beat.Not everyone is stupid like her stans.

    • Tyler November 5, 2014

      He, nor who ever wrote “Drunk On Love” by Pon De Forehead, has a viable case…you f****** moron

  29. LMAO November 5, 2014

    Yes he sounds a hot mess…but I can hear similarities. Not being funny bit if any of you know about musical copyright infringement, from this he may actually have a strong case.

  30. Memo November 5, 2014

    ”Lofty superstardom…” She’s not even that popular in the Latin world as Madonna or Britney, stop maing her out to be the biggest superstar when she isn’t.

    • Tyler November 5, 2014

      She’s HUGE in Brazil. So wtf are you talking about????

  31. TheElusiveLamb November 5, 2014

    WE all know I XOXO my Beyoncé, and I understand at times that her songwriting has been questionable and some think it isn’t her strongest point (obviously performing is), but no ma’am. You’re delusional. Queen B did not steal your song. It doesn’t even sound like she made a blueprint from your track. He just needed promo from Bee. I can’t get mad at that. Especially with these current record label budget cuts going on.

  32. OMG Logic!!! November 5, 2014

    XOXO is the better song, no shade. XO is cute but is still a typical formulaic pop/r&b song.

  33. mingxxx November 5, 2014

    thief beyonce is the Queen of Copy she is the hardest working thief in the music industry

  34. blue November 5, 2014

    i get where this guy is coming from its hard out there and after seeing that amount she allegedly pocketed im ready with my countless lawsuits too. starting with the fact that she is black. that offends me to great lengths.

  35. NOLIES November 5, 2014

    WOW, for the first time she’s been accused of stealing, she actually didn’t do it. That f** needs to give the song to someone who can actually sing though.

  36. Rihanna #1 fan t November 6, 2014

    I CAN’T DEAL !! I HEAR NO SIMILARITY..
    #BOYBYE.. I MEAN YES SHE STEALS BUT THIS SONG HAS NO COMPARISON
