Washington, D.C., Jan. 8 (ANI): Legally speaking, Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z’s hit song ‘Suit and Tie’ did not do well to a group that is up to sue them claiming the track ripped the later off.
Two members of Sly, Slick and Wicked, a 1970 R and B group, filed the lawsuit, and in the documents they say ‘Suit & Tie’ samples their song ‘Sho’ Nuff’ which was released in 1973, reports TMZ.com.
The band members say Timberlake’s record label, Universal Music Group, paid the group to sample the song. However, they never got the rights to the vocal performances in that song. (ANI)
