DRAKE, who is having a phenomenal year with the release of his first album, is being sued by PLAYBOY.
PLAYBOY ENTERPRISES, headed by HUGH HEFNER, has filed a lawsuit in US DISTRICT COURT in LOS ANGELES claiming the rapper sampled portions of “FALLIN’ IN LOVE” by HAMILTON, JOE FRANK and REYNOLDS, whose rights belong to PLAYBOY, in his hit “BEST I EVER HAD.”
In the suit, PLAYBOY claims DRAKE “knew or should have reasonably known” that the song was protected by copyright. PLAYBOY wants DRAKE to cease selling the record and turn over all profits made from it.
