A Hungarian singer by the name of Mitsou, is suing Queen Bey for stealing and using her voice on the hit track, Drunk In Love.
Portions of the lawsuit states:
Mitsou’s voice was sampled and digitally manipulated without her permission.
[The sampling is used] to evoke foreign eroticism alongside the sexually intense lyrics performed by Beyoncé and Jay Z in ‘Drunk in Love.
In the video, Mitsou’s solo vocal introduction follows 57 seconds of a cinematic, intimate scene of beach at night. Following Mitsou’s stirring featured solo vocal introduction, Mitsou’s voice continues to sing as Beyoncé begins to sing.
All together, Mitsou’s vocals are featured for over one and half minutes of the five and one half minute song. Mitsou has never signed any documents that would permit anyone to use her voice for advertising or trade purposes.
