Beyoncé, Jay Z and Timberland are reportedly being sued over the sampling in their huge hit ‘Drunk In Love’.

The accusations have come from Hungarian Roma singer Monika Miczura Juhász (also known as Mitsou), who has stated that the trio sampled her voice in the song without permission.

The Guardian has reported that the singer’s lawyer states: “All together, Mitsou’s vocals are featured for over one and a half minutes of the five and one half minute song. “Mitsou’s incredible voice is widely considered unique and ethereal, and since the 1990s, she has been in high demand for countless international collaborations as a featured guest singer but she has never signed any documents that would permit anyone to use her voice for advertising or trade purposes…and never granted any of the defendants permission to use her voice for any purpose.”

Mitsou has also requested that the song is prohibited from being played until her voice is removed. Oh dear!
