Da Showstoppaz accused Beyoncé of copyright infringement

On Wednesday (May 22), Tessa Avie, Keva bourgeois, Henri Braggs And Brian Clark of Da Showstoppaz filed a federal copyright lawsuit in the Eastern District of Louisiana for alleged copyright infringement and unfair trade practices for its use of the phrase “Release a Wiggle.”

Based on Fox8Live, Da Showstoppaz is accusing Beyoncé of crediting Big Freedia for “Release the Wiggle.” The bounced artists also claim that Big Freedia used the quote in her 2014 single, ‘Explode’.

Fox8Live further reports that Jay-Z is also a defendant in the lawsuit, along with other writers and producers who assisted Bey and Big Freedia in the creation of both songs.

Da Showstoppaz’s lawsuit argues that Big Freedia uses “wiggling yo drops” repeatedly throughout ‘Explode’. Nearly a decade later, Queen Bey sampled “Explode” in her song “Break My Soul,” which debuted on her album “Renaissance.”

According to the complaint, Da Showstoppaz is seeking credit for “Release a Wiggle” on both ‘Explode’ and ‘Break My Soul.’

Additionally, the group seeks any damages related to profits both musicians made from the ‘Break My Soul’ tour and Beyoncé’s film ‘Renaissance: A Film.’
