People can go broke just from sampling a 2 second sound in their song. Always give credit to people in this industry.

Cory Hodge's curator insight, December 4, 2013 12:18 PM

Songwriter Earl Shuman says Alicia Keys' song sounds too similar to his 1962 work "Lonely Boy," which hit number two on the Billboard charts when Eddie Holman recorded it as Hey There Lonely Girl.  There is even a part in the middle of the song that Keys sings a couplet or so from Hey There Lonely Girl, and it is an uncredited sample.  Very interesting that she even sings a part of the original song without giving any credit to it.  To me that is a just asking to be sued.
