Per The Hollywood Reporter, the US$300 million lawsuit also names Cyrus's record label, RCA Records, and her co-writer and producer on the song, Mike Will Made-It. Flourgon used that same line on his 1988 dancehall single "We Run Things", which was a #1 hit in Jamaica.

Miley Cyrus has been slapped with a multi-million dollar lawsuit from a Jamaican reggae singer who claims the pop star ripped off his signature track in her smash hit single "We Can't Stop".

The most recent example reportedly involves Miley Cyrus and her 2013 song "We Can't Stop" - specifically the lyrics "We run things / Things don't run we". "Things no run we", a phrase May claims to have coined.

In the suit, Flourgon argued that Miley Cyrus undergo some drastic changes in "her style of dress and personal vocalizations to reflect the grittiness, aggression, and sultriness associated with US-based hip-hop, R&B, urban and Caribbean music".

This lawsuit is no party in the United States of America for the singer.




His lawyers went on to contend that Cyrus's song "owes the basis of its chart-topping popularity to and its highly-lucrative success to plaintiff May's protected, unique, creative and original content". He's filed a complaint with the U.S. District Court in Manhattan.

Representatives for both Miley and Sony are yet to respond to their request for comment.

May is seeking a potential $300 million in damages, according to a statement from his legal team provided to Reuters.

"We Can't Stop", from Cyrus' album "Bangerz", peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in August 2013.
