BMG believes the song infringes on Brown’s 2014 song “Came To Do,” which appeared on his album X.
Now BMG is not only demanding upwards of $300,000 in damages says the newly filed suit, which also names Atlantic Records as a defendant, they’re pushing an injunction so that Omarion can no longer eat off the song.
The kicker is “Came to Do” was created by Bay Area producer Nic Nac, who has been said to resemble Mustard’s sound to the point only a production credit can separate the two.
Omarion is currently out in South Africa as part of the ARTIFACT Tour and there’s probably a slim-to-yeah-right chance he won’t be performing “Post to Be.”
“The company explains back in 2014, the song ‘Came To Do’ was written by multiple songwriters and featured on Brown’s album ‘X’.
One of the writers, Redwine, assigned 50% of the rights to the song to BMG.
they say infringes on Chris Brown’s song, which they own the rights to currently.
The company accuses Omarion’s track of being identical in pitches, intervals, rhythmic durations and beat placement. Mustard produced the track released by the singer.”
BMG had demanded an injunction against Omarion and Atlantic Records from continuing to profit off their work. They are demanding up to $150,000 per time they infringed on “Came To Do” and a minimum of $300,000 in damages.
