No! NO! Not John Legend! The man is a serious, accomplished artist! We just can't believe he would stoop so low! We can't! We won't!
Then again, if you listen close enough…
John is being sued by a songwriter from New Jersey this week, who claims he passed a demo off to John in 2004, which he then in turn used to write his song "Maxine's Interlude" in 2006. The fella, Anthony Stokes, in his lawsuit insist the song is identical to his track "Where Are You Now?" Anthony wants John to stop selling the track as his own as well as give him unspecified damages.
Uh, a little late for this, don't you think? Where were you for the last five years while this song was being played??? We're suspicious of you!
Check out the video (above) to hear snippets of the two songs. See if you can hear any similarities between them,
