Ariana Grande’s smash hit jam ‘Side to Side‘ has found itself in a web of legal trouble.
Full story below…
The single appeared on Grande’s latest album ‘Dangerous Woman’ and features the Hip-Hop royal Nicki Minaj.
Alas, this month has seen the ladies learn that they may be forced to prove how they and its writers created the jam now that a man named Christopher O’Connor claims that they ripped one of his jams to build it.
O’Connor believes that after sending the track above to the ladies’ label Universal they used a number of its elements to craft ‘Side’ without crediting him.
He’s suing UMG — not Grande or Minaj — asking for royalties from “Side To Side” (which currently has over a billion views on YouTube) and a song-writing credit.
