Call me plagiarized?
That’s the claim behind Ukrainian pop star Aza’s lawsuit today. The singer accuses Carly Rae Jepsen of ripping off her tune “Hunky Santa” – which also features a “call me” call out – to create Jepsen’s blockbuster pop smash.
The claim seems to be a stretch at best. Aza told TMZ, who broke the story, “I’m shocked and surprised that these people wanted to sample my lyrics on their song. They didn’t ask me for permission, they just took it. That’s why I filed this lawsuit.”
