Does Jordan Bratman have a voodoo doll? In the latest instance of bad news for Christina Aguilera – which follows not long after her infamous Super Bowl flub, her Grammy spill, and getting arrested for public intoxication – new lawsuit claims Sony Music hasn’t paid the rightful owner for the sample of the 1968 song ‘Hippy Skippy Moon Strut‘ (also known as ‘I’ll Be A Lucky Man‘) by Dave Cortez and the Moon People used in her 2006 single ‘Ain’t No Other Man‘.
According to a federal lawsuit filed in New York, the classic song’s exclusive rights have been owned by TufAmerica since 2004. However, Sony Music went through Codigo Music and the Clyde Otis Music Group in order for Aguilera to sample the song on her album.
Christina’s label Sony reportedly cleared the rights to the song with the wrong owner! TufAmerica has now filed a lawsuit against Sony demanding they be declared the rightful owners of the song and be paid restitution as well. Fairly easy mistake to make considering the rights to song tracks are constantly being bought and sold.
