She says she did not get clearance for cover
Beyoncé is being sued by singer Des’ree following allegations that she did not get permission from Des’ree to cover a song called ‘I’m Kissing You’.
TMZ says the suit, which was filed yesterday in New York, claims that a deal to use the song did not come to fruition, but Beyoncé went ahead and re-recorded the song and made a video.
Des’ree, who is most famous for her 1994 hit ‘You Gotta Be’ is seeking to put a stop to the distribution of the song, video and Beyoncé solo album ’B’Day- Deluxe Edition’ on which the song appears and is called ‘Still In Love (Kissing You)’ .
