Two musicians who had accused Taylor Swift of stealing the lyrics for her number-one hit of the year 2012 have disregarded their protest, according to court documents released on Monday. Sean Hall and Nathan Butler explained to a federal judge in Los Angeles how they could forgive their 2017 case of discrimination, which controls a file once more. The case’s trial was scheduled to begin in January 2023.
On Monday, Swift and the songwriters’ legal representatives filed court paperwork; however, they omitted any mention of a potential settlement. Requests for more information were not immediately responded to by the party Representatives. Nathan and Sean filed a complaint against Swift, alleging that her 2014 hit violated the rights of Playas Gon’ Play, a song by the band 3LW that peaked at No. 81 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2001.
Swift stated in a filing that “I had never heard the song Playas Gon’ Play and had never heard of that song or the group 3LW until learning about Plaintiffs’ claim in 2017.” She claimed that due to her parents’ refusal to let her watch TRL until she was around 13 years old, she would have had limited opportunity to hear it during its brief chart run.
Taylor Swift is one of the biggest stars in the music business. This year, the singer released Midnights, her tenth studio album, and it has topped charts ever since. Swift has won numerous awards, including three Album of the Year Grammys, an Emmy, 40 American Music Awards, and 29 Billboard Music Awards, which alone are proof of her brilliance.
