A lawsuit claims Ariana Grande’s song “Side To Side” featuring Nicki Minaj is a rip-off of another song, just with their vocals added in.
A Texas man claims “Side To Side” is his track called “J5 (T6),” but someone from UMG Recordings discovered it and got Ariana and Nicki to copy it.
The man was told by UMG to send a demo, but they never addressed his accusation of song stealing.
The man is suing UMG, not Ariana or Nicki, and asking for royalties from “Side To Side” and a song-writing credit.
You be the judge. Listen to both below. Should the Texas man be awarded royalties?
