Miley Cyrus poses in the press room at the 60th annual Grammy Awards at Madison Square Garden in New York City on January 28, 2018. In a suit filed in the Southern District court of NY yesterday, May claims that Cyrus's 2013 Bangerz hit "We Can't Stop" owes "approximately Fifty Percent (50%) of the substantive content", as well as its "chart-topping popularity to and...highly-lucrative success", to his 1988 Jamacian hit "We Run Things". Jamrock singer, Flourgon says Cyrus copied a single he made in 1988. And now we've got a veteran reggae artist suing Miley Cyrus because of the phrase "we run things, things don't run we".

It may be a little hard for Flourgon to make his case though.

Flourgon's song in question has the lyrics "We run things / Things no run we" and Miley croons "We run things / Things don't run we" in her tune. Even so, the singer is reportedly looking for the judge to rule in his favor based on the phraseology alone.

He said Cyrus' song "owes the basis of its chart-topping popularity to and its highly-lucrative success to plaintiff May's protected, unique, creative and original content".

WTA INDIAN WELLS - Venus, Halep and Pliskova march to the quarters
Along with Iva Majoli, at 16 years and 199 days, Anisimova is the youngest player to reach the R16 at Indian Wells. I think this will change a little bit in the future, but for sure the game is good and not really any weakness.

Representatives for both Miley and Sony are yet to respond to their request for comment.

The lawsuit was filed with the U.S. District Court in Manhattan and is attempting to halt sales and further public performances of the song, with lawyers describing the suit as a $300 million case.
