Legendary Dance Star Cece Peniston Hopes To "Resolve" Lyric Theft Claims Against Lizzo
(AllHipHop News) Singer Cece Peniston has accused Lizzo of stealing her music.
Just a few days after producers Justin and Jeremiah Raisen claimed the hip-hop and R&B sensation had nabbed a lyric for her chart-topping hit "Truth Hurts" from them, "Finally" star Peniston has offered up another plagiarism allegation.
She has re-shared claims she previously made about Lizzo's hit "Juice," stating: "This is a clear example of #copyrightinfringement. Cece Peniston versus @lizzobeeating y’all check this out."
She alleges the repeated "Ya Ya EE" line in Lizzo's "Juice" is a copy of her phrasing in "Finally," her 1991 hit.
But she made it clear she's still a big fan of Lizzo's.
Ironically, Lizzo has filed to trademark the phrase "100 percent that b##ch" from "Truth Hurts," which the Raisens have claimed legally belongs to them.
"This is a really a sensitive issue ..I love #lizzos music and artistry," Cece Peniston added. "My concern is that lyrics and melody that I wrote in my song #finally are now a part of her song 'juice' and I would like for us to resolve this in a positive manner."
