In 2014, Chris Brown revived interest in Omarion’s career by featuring on his single ‘Post To Be.’

Alas, it now appears that their creative pairing may have been anything but straight-forward now the former B2K frontman has been rocked by a $300,000 lawsuit.

Full story below…

Shortly before ‘Post To Be‘s birth, Brown released a song named ‘Came To Do’ which was co-written by the creative Red Wine.

Impressed by his material, BMG Rights Management teamed up with Wine to secure half of the song’s rights.

Good news for him.

Bad news for Omarion.

Why?

BMG believes that Omarion and DJ Mustard plagiarised ‘Came’ to create ‘Post’ and is seeking $300,000 from the pair.
There’s more.
For, they’ve also has hit them with an injunction to prevent them from earning money from the song until the legal matter is settled.

Identical.

      • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~ Tyler September 26, 2016

        Girl please shut up! Lmao you don’t even know how to properly speak or type in English.

    • LISA LEVINE September 26, 2016

      Omarion, Marques Houston, Chris Stokes are disgusting. Molesting Children is a Crime. Why are they still walking about enjoy life when two of the three should be in jail? And you low-lifes are gonna defend them when you know they were touched.

      • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~ Tyler September 26, 2016

        Wtf are you talking about ? I’m so confused….

  2. Danzou September 26, 2016

    But that song was literally created by the SAME PERSON who created post to be? Dj mustard produced them both. This is so confusing.

    • Indie September 26, 2016

      And has the same artist on both tracks!

    • Jamie September 26, 2016

      You’re not the only one…

  3. Kwinzy September 26, 2016

    Yet Chris willingly featured himself on Omarion’s track. This shoots down any contention of plagiarism. And why wait over 2 years? The thirst is real.

      You’re a level five hater. Then you wonder why we ALL drag Fadga for FILTH. You must enjoy it.

    • lolhart September 26, 2016

      Funny coming from somebody who stans for CL whose solo career is lacking in originality or as she would say “oliginaliti”

  5. Tim Brown September 26, 2016

    This is a click bait title….smh SO BMG mgmt is suing not Chris…ugh :/

  6. Indie September 26, 2016

    This is ridiculous, how can it be plagiarism when the person who wrote the hook is singing on both tracks and both tracks feature the same producer? Chris clearly made his money from Post To Be and more than likely wrote his verse so would that not mean that BMG would have made there money if Chris has a publishing deal with them? And considering how much of a success and classic the song become, a lot more than they would have made from the original track

    Everybody copy they need to stop with those lawsuit.
    The point is who make it better

  8. john bieber September 26, 2016

    This is a Fake Story

  9. Royalkev September 26, 2016

    Chris song was the first thing I thought of when I heard ‘Post to Be’. It’s actually a better bop too!

  10. Meme September 26, 2016

    This makes absolutely no sense what so ever. Of course they sound similar…it’s the same Effin producer

  11. Hot Boy Detroit September 26, 2016

    DJ Mustard Did Not Produce Chris Brown Came To Do. Where Did That Come From? He Produced Post To Be.

    • #Nicole Nation September 26, 2016

      It’s because the guy who produced came to do is a mustard ripoff. Same guy who produced loyal and ayo. The first time I heard loyal I swore it was produced by dj mustard, but there was no “mustard on the beat ho” at the beginning. This guy is the plagiarizer, he took mustard’s whole sound! He took Mustard’s exact cord progression and way of using just three notes in every song and made it his own, and nobody even noticed that it wasn’t DJ Mustard unless they looked at the credits.

      2010’s is the decade of the lazy producer

      First the lazy rapper, now the lazy producer.

  12. brazio September 26, 2016

    All the songs sound alike today…I don’t see what the fuss is about

  13. J September 26, 2016

    And Came to Do sounds just like Loyal so I don’t see what’s the big deal. Also this article is kind of written in a confusing manner.

  14. #Nicole Nation September 26, 2016

    This is bs it’s dj mus-tard’s fault for his lack of effort in every beat. All of his beats always sound the same, why are they picking out this one? Just look at all his beats, same cord pattern and everything. And actually post to be doesn’t really sound like came to do, came to do sounds like loyal and ayo sounds like both of them.

  15. Bitchpleaseeee September 26, 2016

    I thought CB featured on both sings too hence seemingly gave them the permission so where’s the plagiarism ????? ?????

  16. ka September 26, 2016

    Man Omarion, you just were making a come back and that money could of went to your kids (through child support).

  17. Travon Austin September 26, 2016

    wow

  18. Sisqo slays our favs September 26, 2016

    I find this lawsuit hilarious.Cb’s “Look at me now” jacked “I get it in” by Omarion.
