Songwriter Wins $44M In Usher "Bad Girl" Lawsuit


PHILADELPHIA, PA – A Philadelphia songwriter is finally reaping the benefits of what he claims he was owed regarding the second-best selling album of last decade.
Billboard reports that last week, a Philadelphia Common Pleas Court jury awarded Daniel Marino millions for a song he largely created by laying the guitar hook, tempo and chord progression named “Club Girl” that would go on to become Usher’s “Bad Girl” off of his monster 2004 album, Confessions.


Marino’s former co-writer William Guice was ordered to pay $6.75 million in compensatory damages, $20.25 million in punitive damages and co-defendant Dante Barton’s Destro Music Productions agreed to fork over $17.35 million.
That, ladies and gentlemen, brings the grand total to $44.35 million.
Luckily for the now 40-year-old superstar, none of the shillings will have to come from his piggy bank, for he wasn’t named in the lawsuit.

Download EP: The Weekend - My Dear Melancholy

The Weeknd My Dear Melancholy "DOWNLOAD ZIP HERE" The Weeknd’s 2016 album, Starboy, was the musical equivalent of a Hollywood blockbuster: action-packed, star-studded, with a little something for everyone. Here, he returns to his unfiltered, art-house roots with a release so intimate and tortured, you’ll feel like a fly on his bedroom wall. Stuttering snares, gauzy production, and R-rated lyrics about sex and drugs (“I got two red pills to take the blues away,” he coos through a vocoder on “Privilege”) paint a vivid picture of a brooding Lothario—one that strongly resembles the dark artist we initially met on House of Balloons. This time around, he’s tapped gothic electro king Gesaffelstein, who has also produced for Kanye West, to bring a sheen to the shadows with neon synths and fuzzy echoes that lift his signature anguish into new emotional heights.
The EP My Dear Melancholy comes out laced with 6 songs long and the only features are both from Gesaffelstein.
