For $7 million XOXO.
Lane says Beyonce copied "the first four bars of an eight bar melody that is looped," and “contains a four note sequence that is similar to the four note sequence,” but Beyonce's people are urging the court to stop and listen to both songs because it's evident Lane is just milking the situation for a settlement.
The “melodic content and there is no meaningful similarity in pitch series, rhythm or rhythmic patterns, melodic development or structure.”
Also, Beyonce's attorney states, “the two songs are distinct from a thematic perspective.” Lane's song describes romantic and sexual feelings towards a new lover with lyrics about “being horny” and “wanting to love every inch of the lover’s body,” while Beyonce's song is a “celebration of love and life, emphasizing the importance of living in the present with a loved one ‘before our time has run out.’”
In other words, do not expect to sue Beyonce and win.
