Juice WRLD's 'Lucid Dreams' Is The Subject Of A $15 Million Lawsuit





Juice WRLD's been hit with a huge lawsuit by pop-punk band Yellowcard, outlets are reporting, who claim that "Lucid Dreams," Juice WRLD's breakout 2018 single, copies melodic elements of their 2006 song "Holly Wood Died." The case is set to the tune of a whopping $15 million. Along with financial compensation, the band is looking for co-ownership of the song and royalties as well.
The Yellowcard members aren't just suing Juice WRLD; they're including nearly everyone connected with the record: producer Nicholas Mira, co-writer Taz Taylor, Interscope Records, and more. Since the song was instrumental in breaking Juice WRLD to mainstream America, they're also looking for revenue from his concert tours and public appearances. To establish the song's similarities, they point to a "melodic idiosyncrasy" called a melisma, which, according to the band, appears in a "parallel position" in both songs.
There's also the fact that Juice WRLD is quoted in an interview saying that he "listened to and educated himself in emo pop-rock music" to impress a girl that he had a crush on in fifth grade in 2006. It's the same year that "Holly Wood Dies" came out on Yellowcard's Lights and Sounds album.
According to Yellowcard's attorney, the lawsuit isn't new. "They put all of the parties on notice a long while ago and gave them every opportunity to try and resolve it," he said in a statement to Billboard. "That notice was pretty much ignored leaving them with no real choice."

GEM is to headline the Los Angeles Power Women Summit in December, bringing this new style of medical-music to the masses. She has been able to make use of her time in isolation: perfecting her EP, creating a YouTube channel and working on a plethora of collaborations with other global artists. The new single, If I’m Honest, is arguably the first of its kind. It has been specifically produced in the key of B. The musical note B is associated with the crown chakra, the 7th chakras in the Buddhist tantric system. Buddhists believe that by listening to music in this key, corresponding to the crown chakra, it can heal and awaken the listener, helping to release stored negative energy and energetic blockages in the body.

Michael Coleman Is back with another Anthem!

  WE HAD A CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH MICHAEL COLEMAN, READ WHAT HE HAD TO SAY ABOUT HIS MUSICAL JOURNEY!   Michael Coleman, where are you from and what's it like in your hometown and how did you get the nickname "The Metropolitan Cowboy"?   I was actually born and raised in San Diego, California.  San Diego is just an awesome town although like everywhere else in California, it costs a fortune to live there.  My nickname, “The Metropolitan Cowboy” actually comes from a television project I was doing a few year’s back. I wrote and produced an adult-oriented sketch comedy show and since I was always dressed with a cowboy hat on and looked metrosexual we decided that should be the name of the show and my brand and I have been called that ever since.   How long have you been songwriting and where do you find the inspiration?   I’ve been writing since I was a kid, however I didn’t decide to take it seriously until I had a milestone birthday , I won’t tell you which one and it wa
