Miley Cyrus has been sued by Michael “Flourgon” May

Miley Cyrus has been sued by Michael

They specifically point to similarities between Cyrus's refrain of "We run things / Things don't run we" and May's lyrics: "We run things / Things no run we".

May says the song contained the lyric, "We run things".

"We Can't Stop", the debut single off her infamous 2013 album Bangerz, is now the subject of a lawsuit aimed at the singer, filed by Jamaican dancehall artist Flourgon.


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. The publication summed up the lawsuit by saying "Mr. Flourgon seems to thinks Miley's declaration of not stopping is the same thing as him saying he 'runs things'".

Flourgon has instructed to sue the singer and her record company Sony to block further distribution, sales, and performances of the song.

Flourgon's track never charted in the USA, and was released four years before Miley was born.


Representatives for Cyrus, 25, did not immediately respond to requests for comment via Facebook and Twitter.

This lawsuit is no party in the United States of America for the singer.

The song reached No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The two songs weren't that similar musically, but Thicke had taken inspiration from Gaye, and that was apparently enough for the jury.
