Plus, Usher is all caught up in a copyright lawsuit. More details below…………
According to Hip-Hop Wired :
“I’m just going to continue to put out music, continue to put out product,” he tells Hip-Hop Wired. “Continue to be a great dad, and a moving force in our community.”
“I’m working on music for Mariah, for Kanye, and for a host of other artists. I’m just gon’ keep producing and get back on my music game, now that television [is] over.”
Carey, who was honored as an icon at this year’s BMI Urban Awards, is working on a new album, the lead single of which is the inspirational track “Triumphant,” featuring Rick Ross and Meek Mill. Stevie produced “Breakdown,” “Honey,” and “Babydoll” for the songstress but wants to keep the details behind the new music he’s cooking up for her, under wraps. “You gotta’ stay tuned,” he says.
Usher’s “caught up” in a copyright lawsuit. Where a group of songwriters is suing the singer, of stealing the song that became a instant hit “Caught Up.” Zacharia L. Edwards, Mitch Moses, and Vince McLean filed the suit on September 7th.
The trio is seeking an undetermined amount of damages. According to allhiphop.com, the three claim they wrote the musical composition for “Caught Up” and that they played the track for Arista Records rep Michael Barackman in 2002.
The songwriters are saying that when Usher’s hit album “Confessions” was released in 2004, there were “substantial similarities to the original version.” According to court documents, “an ordinary lay observer could listen to the two musical compositions at issue, and given the theme, melody, hook, lyrics and chorus, reasonably find that the two songs are substantially similar and that a friend and infringement has occurred.”
