Dua Lipa sued for allegedly stealing ‘Levitating’ from a reggae band

According to the documents obtained, this is a simple allegation of copyright infringement. Artikal Sound System simply states that Dua Lipa and her team heard their song before 2020 when they started writing “Levitating” and then drafted it.

The lawsuit doesn’t explain exactly why they think this is the case, although they’re supposed to lay it out in court. He also names Warner Records – Dua Lipa’s label – and others as defendants. They demand all the profits that should have been made from the success of “Levitating”, as well as damages.

Dua Lipa’s representatives have yet to comment on the lawsuit. This is a developing story, so stay tuned for updates.

Listen to both songs below and see if you think Artikal Sound System is right – the beats are surprisingly similar, especially in the chorus, although the lyrics are very different.

“Levitating” is one of Dua Lipa’s greatest songs to date. Taken from his huge second studio album, 2020s nostalgia for the future, the electro-disco number was both a critical and commercial success. It reached number five on the UK Singles Chart, number two on the US Billboard Hot 100, and number four on the ARIA Singles Chart. “Levitating” became the longest running top 10 single by a female artist on the Billboard Hot 100.
