Apple sued for using Jamie XX ft Young Thug & Popcaan song in commercial.

I'm sure you're all familiar with the smash hit, from Jamie XX's In Colour Album (2015), 'There's Gonna Be (good times)' ft Popcaan and Young Thug. If you're unfamiliar, need help getting up from under that rock?. Anyway, the song featured a sample from the Persuasions 1970's hit song Good Times. Which explains why a founding member of the Persuasions Jerry Lawson is the Claimant in the suit against Tech / Music giant Apple, who used the song in an iPhone Ad.

 

Lawson claims that 'Good Times' which is lead by his vocals, was used in the ad. without his permission . After complaining that the firm in charge of Apples ad campaigns Media Arts lab and Apple did not obtain the relevant permission or negotiate any agreement with him, Media Arts reached out to offer some cash to settle the deal which Lawson felt was insufficient. 

Enjoy the Tunage because this song is SO LIT!
