Things aren’t looking good for Dua Lipa, as the 26-year-old singer has been hit with yet another lawsuit over her chart-topping track, Levitating.

The lawsuit comes just days after reggae band Artikal Sound System claimed that Dua Lipa ripped off their 2017 song, Live Your Life, and they have filed a lawsuit against the singer and her label Warner Records for all of the profits made from the song, plus damages.

The latest lawsuit, however, was filed by L. Russell Brown and Sandy Linzer, who claim that Dua Lipa’s song is “substantially similar” to the 1979 Cory Daye disco hit Wiggle and Giggle All Night, which was written by the two songwriters.

As per the lawsuit, the plaintiffs are seeking an unspecified amount for the damages they have suffered, “including lost profits to be proven at trial!”

The lawsuit claims that the “signature melody” of Levitating – which topped the Adult Contemporary, Adult Top 40, and Mainstream Top 40 charts“is a duplicate” of the opening melody of Wiggle and Giggle All Night, and also bears resemblance to the 1980 Miguel Bosé song Don Diablo, which they interestingly also own the copyright to…

“The notes move in the same direction with evenly matched intervals or ‘steps,’ and almost identical rhythms,” the lawsuit continued, adding that the opening melody is repeated six times in Levitating, and three times in a remix featuring DaBaby.

The lawsuit also mentioned the fact that Dua Lipa previously admitted that her album Future Nostalgia was inspired by songs from that era, and the songwriters have claimed that in doing this, she “copied” their creation “without attribution”.

“Lipa admitted that she deliberately emulated prior eras of music to create Future Nostalgia, the aptly named album on which Levitating appears,” the lawsuit says.

“In seeking nostalgic inspiration, Defendants copied Plaintiffs’ creation without attribution.”

Their lawyers, as per The Hollywood Reporter, claim that Dua has “levitated away plaintiffs’ intellectual property”, and will be unable to “wiggle out of their willful infringement.” We see what they did there…

Levitating spent a very impressive 68 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart, and was the number one Hot 100 song of 2021, so the payouts could be very rewarding if Dua Lipa loses her lawsuit.

Brb while we listen to Wiggle and Giggle All Night, Levitating, and Don Diablo to see if we spy any similarities…
