Grammy Award winning singer Usher was slapped with a lawsuit over claims that he stole his 2004 hit “Caught Up”.
Zacharia Edwards, Mitch Moses and Vince McClean filed the suit alleging they played a song with the same title for an Artista Records executive in 2002, only to hear a version two years later on the radio. They insist they never heard back from the label and are seeking unspecified damages.
“Caught Up” is the fifth single from Usher’s 2004 diamond album, Confessions. The song is credited to songwriter Ryan Toby and producers Andre Harris and Vidal Davis.
Just last month Usher was named in another copyright infringement lawsuit, alleging he sampled Syl Johnson's 1967 song “Different Strokes” without permission.
