A group of songwriters have accused Usher of stealing his 2004 single 'Caught Up' from them.
Usher's been in the courtroom as of late (his ex recently asked a judge to hold him in contempt for poor co-parenting), but these appearances haven't concerned his music until now.
As reported by TMZ, a group of songwriters, Zacharia Edwards, Mitch Moses and Vince McClean, are claiming the R&B icon stole his chart-topping Confessions single "Caught Up" from them. They allegedly played it for an administrator at Arista Records (Usher's label) in 2002, who then played it for LA Reid. Two years later, they heard Usher's version on the radio.
Just Blaze received the producer credit for the track, but his name hasn't come up in the case so far. Considering it's been nearly a decade since the single dropped, the songwriters may not have the strongest case here.
That's all for now. Peep the visual for "Caught Up" below:
