Beyoncé sued by Des’ree over song

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)’ .
