Dua Lipa Sued Over ‘Levitating’ Copyright

Following the singer’s super successful single, ‘Levitating,’ Dua Lipa is now being sued over the song.

A band by the name of Artikal Sound System is seeking profits from the 2020 track accusing the superstar singer of ripping off their 2017 reggae single ‘Live Your Life’. According to information obtained by TMZ, the band believe that Dua Lipa and her team heard their song and produced an exact copy with the ‘Levitating’ release.

In the lawsuit Artikal Sound System have also named the artist’s record label Warner Records and others as defendants and are seeking any and all profits made from the song, plus damages.

At press time the spokesperson for Dua Lipa has yet to comment on the accusation.

The ‘One Kiss’ hitmaker recently confirmed that she’s been working on her new album and already has a “vision” and a name for the full length stating:

“I’ve done a big chunk of writing: It’s starting to take shape; I’ve got a lot of it recorded. It has a vision. It has a name, I think – for now. It’s just been fun experimenting. I’m always going to make pop music, but it has its own unique sound, which is exciting and something that feels like a movement from ‘Future Nostalgia’. It’s still in baby form, so we’ll see as it progresses. In all honesty, it’s probably not what my fans want to hear, but I’m in no rush.”

The British-born musician released her last LP, ‘Future Nostalgia’, in 2020 though the award-winning star never knew that ‘Levitating’ would become such a big hit, confessing “I can never preempt what song people are going to react to the best but ‘Levitating’ was the first song that helped dictate the rest of the album.”
