Playboy sues Drake over “Best I Ever Had” [News]
Los Angeles, CA – In a move that reeks of retaliation for Justin Bieber’s mother declining an offer from Playboy, the pin-up King Hugh Hefner has sued Bieber’s friend Drake over “Best I Ever Had”. According to reports, the lawsuit accuses Drake, Cash Money Records and Universal of copyright infringement, claiming the song sampled at the beginning of “Best I Ever Had” is their song “Fallin’ In Love” by Hamilton, Joe Frank and Dennison/Reynolds, and that the sample was not cleared for use. The copyright for the music belongs to Playboy Music, Inc. and Plaintiff, Playboy Enterprises, is its successor in interest. This is just the latest lawsuit surrounding “Best I Ever Had”. New York’s DJ Absolut recently sued Kia Shine over unpaid royalties.
