Hungarian Singer Sues Beyonce For Sampling ''Drunk in Love''


Power couple Beyonce and Jay Z, and producer Timbaland allegedly ripped off 

a Hungarian singer Monika Miczura‘s song and sampled it in “Drunk in Love” 

without her permission,

via TMZ:
Monika Miczura, aka Mitsou, says Bey, Jay and producer Timbaland pilfered a Roma folk song she recorded in 1995, then used it for the first 13 seconds of the hit song.
Mitsou says she never gave them permission, but even worse, her song is about hopelessness yet Beyonce used it “to evoke foreign eroticism alongside the sexually intense lyrics.” 
Mitsou says the 3 amigos bastardized her song — “Bajba, Bajba Pelem” — by digitally manipulating her voice with Auto-Tune and various cuts.
She wants damages and is also asking a judge to prohibit anyone from playing the song as long as it has her voice.
If that’s truly Monika’s voice and Monika’s recording, she might have a case on her hands. What do you think?
