Justin Timberlake says he never stole a 70s musician’s work and passed it off as his own, and the singer is pleading for a judge to see things his way.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Timberlake is denying he stole music from a disco star for his 2006 song, “Damn Girl.” He wants the lawsuit filed against him thrown out of court.
Back in 2016, PK Music Performance sued Timberlake, Will.i.Am and Sony Music accusing them of ripping off a song, “A New Day Is Here At Last.” The song was written by Perry Kimble, who was a part of the 70s disco band, A Taste of Honey.
PK says they obtained the rights to the track following Kimble’s death in 1999.
Timberlake claims in his new filings that his track was “independently created” and says any similarities are too generic to sue him over. He also claims that any sample of the 70s song used was licensed through a man named Josh Davis, who represented that he was the sole owner of the rights.
The singer is demanding all claims against him be dismissed once and for all.
In the original lawsuit, PK accused Justin Timberlake of jacking the music and using it on his 2006 album, “Futuresex/Lovesounds.” The song was produced by Will.i.Am.
PK Music claimed the two songs had substantially similar parts, including the drum, conga drum, organ, bass guitar, electric guitar, and saxophone. They pointed to the rhythm, harmony, and melody claiming they were identical.
PK Music sued demanding an injunction against Justin Timberlake from continuing to profit off the alleged infringement and unspecified damages.
The case is ongoing.
