Michael May, who had a Jamaican hit single in 1988 under the name Flourgon, said his "We Run Things" has been misappropriated for Miley's hit single, claiming half the song is stolen. The suit claims cites May's 1988 song, making the case that it was big hit, with a wide audience and considerable sales in the US and across the Caribbean region.
On her song, Cyrus sings: "We run things, things don't run we". Gon was a popular dancehall artist in the 1980s and early 90s.
In his lawsuit, the deejay argued that Miley Cyrus released the song at a pivotal moment in her career when she was transitioning from Hannah Montana from the Disney series into a more edgier and sexually charged pop star.
Flourgon claims that Cyrus infringed on his copyright by using the "we run things" phrase as part of the "We Can't Stop" hook. May also claims that their songs share the same general themes, calling both of them anthems of "defiant audaciousness in the realm of self-discovery and self-governance". Since then, there have been a ton of lawsuits based on vague musical similarities.
Reuters has reported that May says Miley's song, which reached No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, "owes the basis of its chart-topping popularity to and its highly-lucrative success to plaintiff May's protected, unique, creative and original content".
The Kingston, Jamaica, resident is also seeking a halt to further sales and performances of We Can't Stop, according to his complaint filed with a court in Manhattan.
