But, this time, not for a collabo. But, it is concerning a collabo they did together.

The infamous pop hit “Baby,” garnered his entrance into the world, but another song featuring on the track called “Somebody To Love” from Bieber’s freshman My World 2.0 album has now made him enter another world: the court room.

This is a place both Bieber and would surely like to avoid following their own respective dealings with the law in fairly recent years. Usher, for his sensitive custody battle with his ex-wife and former stylist, Tameka Foster Raymond. And Bieber, for his early adulthood DUI antics, which landed him behind bars.

Now, the former duo have been charged with a $10 million copyright infringement this Thursday concerning the song. A 2013 lawsuit was reawakened and ruled in the favor of a singer by the name of Devin Copeland (stage name De Rico) and a songwriter named Mareio Overton who claimed that Bieber’s song sounded very similar to Copeland’s own; particularly, the chorus.


Originally, the pair had written the song in 2008 and two years later, Bieber released his own.

After a second review, the court decided to agree with the two individuals, in pointing out that Bieber’s “Somebody To Love” bared a resemblance to Copeland’s own song of the same name.

This is certainly not good news for Bieber and Usher. But, it is definitely a lesson learned.
