Creativity does not come off from the top of your head. Making a song, let alone an album has to be pretty tiring. No wonder it is a full time job with composing the music, coming up with new lyrics that mean something and then putting it all together.

Sometimes, a track might just be in your head but you don’t realize where it came from or someone else’s unoriginality just might make you suffer.
Whatever the case might be, the singers are definitely put on the spot with any allegations. Just yesterday, Demi Lovato was sued by Sleigh Bells for her song Stars. The next star who has been dragged in a lawsuit by song writer Alex Greggs.
According to reports, Greggs has sued the singer and the composer David Guetta for the single, One Last Time.
According to TMZ, Greggs claim that the artist and the DJ stole lyrics, music and most importantly, the chorus of his song Takes All Night which he wrote for Skye Stevens. Greggs is now demanding royalties from Ariana’s song earnings.
Alex claims cannot be avoided as he is one of the big guns in song writing in the music industry. He has worked with the likes of Lady GaGa, Justin Timberlake, Janet Jackson, and Michael Jackson.
Ariana is yet to comment on the allegations made against her. Many are trying to compare the two songs to see whether they are similar even though the tracks have been released two years apart from each other. While Steven’s song is more upbeat and catchy, Ariana’s song is mellow and toned down. We will have to see who wins the case.
