theJasmineBRAND.com exclusively reports, Omarion is accused of ripping off his friend Chris Brown’s hit song and passing it off as his own. And now a music company has hit the singer with a lawsuit in excess of $300k and an injunction preventing him from continuing to illegally profit off their work.
BMG Rights Management filed suit against Atlantic Records, DJ Mustard and Omarion in federal court.
The company explains back in 2014, the song “Came To Do” was written by multiple songwriters and featured on Brown’s album ‘X’. One of the writers, Redwine, assigned 50% of the rights to the song to BMG.
Then later in the year, Omarion released his fourth studio album under Atlantic Records which included the track “Post to Be” which they say infringes on Chris Brown’s song, which they own the rights to currently.
The company accuses Omarion’s track of being identical in pitches, intervals, rhythmic durations and beat placement. Mustard produced the track released by the singer.
BMG filed suit demanding an injunction against the label and Omarion from continuing to illegally profit off their work along with accounting for the his album sales and damages up to $150k per time they infringed on “Came To Do” and no less than $300k in actual damages.
