Justin Bieber’s hit track “One Less Lonely Girl,” off of his 2008 album “My World,” is causing some trouble for the young pop star. The A-Rex songwriting team, composed of Sean Hamilton and Hyuk Shin, have filed a lawsuit seeking additional royalties for the song – worth $200,000.
While the song is credited to the A-Rex team on the album, it is also credited to Ezekiel Lewis, Usher, and Balewa Muhammad. Hamilton and Shin claim they deserve 10% of the track’s royalties – worth $200,000 – which they are currently not receiving. The suit also names EMI Music Publishing and the L.A. Reid Music Publishing Company.
What does this mean for the star? Not much has come out from Bieber’s people about the issue. Hopefully it will be settled quickly, quietly, and fairly. I know I don’t want any unnecessary drama for the Biebs!Tags: A-Rex, Justin Bieber, music, My World, One Less Lonely Girl, pop
