Justin Bieber is being sued by an indie pop star who claims Bieber stole her vocal loop for his mega hit “Sorry.”
According to TMZ, Casey Dienel, aka White Hinterland, claims the “unique characteristics of the female vocal riff” off her 2014 hit “Ring The Bell” are identical to “Sorry.” She also names Skrillex, who produced JB’s hit, and its writers as defendants.
Bieber used 8 seconds of the riff, but Casey says he repeats it 6 times in the track. According to Casey, both songs feature keyboard synthesizers, samples, synth bass, drums, and percussion.
Casey points out her track was a hit in its own right gaining more than 800k streams, and Rolling Stone noting it out as a magazine favorite. Casey says she warned Bieber to stop using the sample last December but he ignored her.
She wants JB to stop playing her song and wants the pop star to pay up.
