Justin Bieber, Dan, and Shay sued for copyright infringement over Grammy-winning hit song 10,000 Hours

On Thursday, Companies filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Justin Bieber and Dan + Shay, International Manufacturing Concepts, Melomega Music, and Sound Gems sued the pop singer and the country music duet, among others, for their song 10,000 Hours.

This Complaint states that Justin Bieber, 28, and the duo (Dan Smyers, 34, and Shay Mooney, 30) “stole the core portion” of the song released in 1973 The First Time Baby Is A Holiday, which contains the chorus, verse, and hook, written by Palmer Rakes and Frank Fioravanti. This Complaint claims there are “unmistakable similarities” despite the fact that the song was not published until 2014, approximately five years before 10,000 Hours.

The corporations, who claim ownership of the song, are suing for credit on the track, as well as monetary damages, statutory damages, legal costs, and an injunction against further distribution of the song.

However, Bieber and the Tequila singers released the song in October 2019 — just four days after Bieber married Hailey Baldwin for the second time in a religious ceremony in South Carolina attended by many famous friends, including both Smyers and Mooney, as well as Scooter Braun, who manages all three artists. The song earned the performers a Grammy Award for best country duo/group performance in 2021. Meanwhile, the artist received two AMAs, an iHeartRadio Music Award, and a Billboard award for the song in 2020.

Interestingly, this isn’t the first time Bieber is getting sued for his track. As per TMZ, Bieber was sued in 2016 by an artist who claimed he and DJ Skrillex copied the hook of Sorry from one of her songs. The singer later filed to have her own suit dismissed.

Justin Drew Bieber born on March 1, 1994  is a Canadian singer. He was discovered by American record executive Scooter Braun and signed with RBMG Records in 2008, gaining recognition with the release of his debut seven-track EP My World (2009) and soon establishing himself as a teen idol.

Bieber achieved commercial success with his teen pop-driven debut studio album, My World 2.0 (2010), which debuted atop the US Billboard 200, making him the youngest solo male act to top the chart in 47 years.The album spawned the internationally successful single “Baby”, which became one of the highest certified singles of all time in the US. His second studio album, Under the Mistletoe (2011), became the first Christmas album by a male artist to debut at number one in the US.

Bieber experimented with dance-pop in his third studio album, Believe (2012), and went on to become the first artist in history with five US number-one albums at age 18. Between 2013 and 2014, Bieber was involved in multiple controversies and legal issues, which had a drastic impact on his public image.

In 2015, Bieber released “Where Are Ü Now” with Jack Ü, which saw Bieber explore EDM and win the Grammy Award for Best Dance/Electronic Recording. The song’s musical direction played an instrumental role in his fourth studio album, Purpose, which produced three US number-one singles: “Love Yourself”, “Sorry”, and “What Do You Mean?”. He became the first artist in history to occupy the entire top three of the UK Singles Chart. Bieber diversified on numerous collaborations between 2016 and 2017 including DJ Khaled’s “I’m the One”, which reached number one on the US Billboard Hot 100.

.A week later, he released his remix to Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito”, his second consecutive US chart-topper. The song tied the then-record for most weeks atop the US Billboard Hot 100 and made Bieber the first artist in history to chart new number-one singles in consecutive weeks.” Despacito” was named the greatest Latin song of all time by Billboard and earned Bieber his career-first Latin Grammy Award for Best Urban Fusion/Performance. In 2019, he released a country collaboration with Dan + Shay, “10,000 Hours”, which won the Grammy Award for Best Country Duo/Group Performance.
