Producer Brandon Lee is suing Cardi B and Lil Nas X for stealing his song. Lee says his song “Broad Day” was hijacked without his permission. Here’s the original song performed with PuertoReefa featuring Sakrite Duece.
Lee explains, both songs are “built on a 4-measure phrase outlining the cord progression E, F, G, F, E.” He also says the tempo is the same, both songs utilize guitar and wind instruments, the drumbeats are the same, and the chord progression is similar. Lee says the song was very popular around Atlanta where Lil Nas X is from. His suit against Cardi probably won’t hold up but he’s also suing Sony Music, Columbia Records & Cardi’s former manager, Klenord Raphael.
