Using Hungarian Singer vocals Without Permission
Beyoncé and Jay Z made what became one of the biggest songs of the year with “Drunk in Love,” but now a Hungarian singer is saying they don’t deserve all the credit.
In fact, they don’t deserve 29 percent of the credit, to be exact.

born Mónika Juhász Miczura, is alleging that Bey and Hov, as well as Timbaland, who co-produced the song, used vocals from her 1995 song “Bajba, Bajba Pelem.”
The suit claims that the every voice we hear singing at the opening of the song, which was included on Bey’s 2013 self-titled album, was borrowed and distorted from her.
Mitsou says she never gave them permission, but even worse, her song is about hopelessness yet Beyonce used it "to evoke foreign eroticism alongside the sexually intense lyrics."
Mitsou says the 3 amigos bastardized her song -- "Bajba, Bajba Pelem" -- by digitally manipulating her voice with Auto-Tune and various cuts.
She wants damages and is also asking a judge to prohibit anyone from playing the song as long as it has her voice.
