TMZ reports that singer Usher is being sued by three guys for allegedly ripping off a song they wrote called “Caught Up”.
Zacharia Edwards, Mitch Moses and Vince McClean allege that they wrote a song called, “Caught Up” back in 2002. The trio say they played their song for a honcho at Arista Records which is Usher’s label. The guy they played it for liked it and reportedly took the song and played it for LA Reid. Edwards, Moses and McClean say they never heard from Arista again, but 2 years later they heard their song on the radio.
Usher’s song skyrocketed on the charts and was featured in his album, “Confessions.”
Edwards, Moses and McClean are suing for unspecified damages.
