‘Harlem Shake’ producers faces lawsuit

It seems our beloved ‘Harlem Shake’ track isn’t quite off the hook yet!  Reggae-ton artists Hector Delgado and Philadelphia rapper Jayson Musson are claiming that Baauer did not receive permission to sample their track for ‘Harlem Shake’.

As a result, both artists have now filed a lawsuit against Baauer and Mad Decent Records, owned by producer Diplo, asking for compensation and copyright claims for sampling the track without their consent.

As we all know ‘Harlem Shake’ has absolutely sky-rocketed over the past few weeks, when YouTube users began creating mock videos of the infectious dance track, it has now stood at number one in the Hot 100 for 3 weeks and going.
