Chris Brown and Drake straight-up jacked one other artist’s work for his or her hit monitor “No Steering” … so declare a singer and producer in a brand new lawsuit.
Brandon Cooper, who goes by the stage title Mr. Cooper, and Timothy Valentine — aka Drum’n Skillz — are suing CB and Drake claiming “No Steering” ripped off their work on a monitor known as, “I Love Your Gown.”
In docs, obtained by TMZ, Cooper and Valentine declare their tune dropped 3 years earlier than CB and Drake’s “No Steering” dropped in June 2019. Cooper and Valentine declare an evaluation of the beat, lyrics, hook and rhythmic construction demonstrates that “No Steering” was copied or, on the very least, principally derived from “I Love Your Gown.”
Particularly, the singer and producer declare their monitor has the lyrics … “She acquired it; she acquired it” repeated 16 instances whereas CB’s and Drake’s has “You bought it, lady; you bought it” at the very least 11 instances.
Cooper and Valentine declare even non-expert listeners can see and listen to the similarities … claiming Chris and Drake intentionally exploited “I Love Your Gown” and even taunted them with a lyric about “flew the coop,” which Cooper claims is a play on his nickname, Coop.
The singer and producer are suing for copyright infringement and are in search of massive damages. We have reached out to CB and Drake’s camp, to this point no phrase again.
