Earlier this year, Detroit-based female rapper Lizzo released her fourth studio album called “Cuz I Love You”. Also, one of the viral songs on the album named “Truth Hurts” would be loved by fans.
According to recent speculations, it was claimed that Lizzo plagiarized her viral music “Truth Hurts”.
Lizzo wrote “Truth Hurts” with Justin Raisen. Raisen accused her of the melody of stealing the song “Healthy”.
Lizzo’s lawyer Cynthia Arato sent an important statement to Billboard and responded to the claims that the singer plagiarized the “Truth Hurts” song. She said:
“The Raisens are not writers of ‘Truth Hurts.’ They did not collaborate with Lizzo or anyone else to create this song, and they did not help write any of the material that they now seek to profit from, which is why they expressly renounced any claim to the work, in writing, months ago.”
The lawyer also said that it was normal for successful singers to be subjected to this type of claim. She continued:
“Although it has become all too commonplace for successful artists to be subjected to these type of opportunistic claims, it is nevertheless disappointing that after all of her hard work, Lizzo has to respond to this specious claim.”
