According to reports, PK Music Performance has filed a lawsuit against the producer and singer Justin Timberlake alleging that Timberlake's 2006 Will.i.Am-produced song "Damn Girl" is a complete rip off of the 1969 J.C. Davis song "A New Day Is Here At Last", which they own the rights to.

Justin Timberlake and Will.I.Am (né Will Adams) are being sued for their collaborative work on the song "Damn Girl" which was featured on Timberlake's 2006 album, Futuresex/Lovesounds, according to a lawsuit obtained By Reports.

PK Music Performance group brought the suit against the musicians over the track "A New Day Is Here At Last," describing it as "one of the most recognizable songs from the disco
Will.i.Am
era," adding that Timberlake and Adams' music too closely imitates the song, which was originally copyrighted in 1969 by Perry Kibble, and performed by J.D. Davis.

According to the documents, PK Music Performance renewed the copyright license again in January, 17 years after Kibble died and handed off the rights to his sister Janis McQuinton – who is also the principal of PK Music Performance.

She handed over the copyright to the company this past December.

"A substantial amount of the music in "Damn Girl" is copied from "A New Day Is Here At Last," the lawsuit reads.

"Specifically, a substantial part of the drum, conga drum, organ, bass guitar, electric quitter and saxophone parts in "Damn Girl," were all copied from "A New Day Is Here At Last."
