Dua Lipa could end up facing legal troubles over her latest song “Levitating.” The smash hit recently became a target of controversy after a music band sued the singer for allegedly stealing their song.

According to TMZ, the band Artikal Sound System filed suit against the British pop star – who is continuing to receive critical and commercial success thanks to her new album, and this track by extension.

The people at Artikal claim the 26-year-old ripped off the catchy tune from their own reggae song, “Live Your Life,” which they dropped in 2017 to some notable success.

According to the documents, Artikal are claiming Dua and her team heard their song before 2020 (when they started writing “Levitating”) and trotted out a carbon copy.

In addition to Dua herself, Artikal has named Warner Records (her label) and others as defendants – and they’re seeking any profits they may have made off of “Levitating,” plus damages.
