Songwriters voluntarily drop Drake from ‘no guidance’ lawsuit

Roommates, looks like Drake might be off the hook! Apparently, Champagne Papi is no longer being sued for copyright infringement for his feature on Chris Brown’s song “No Guidance.” If you recall, songwriters Brandon Cooper and Timothy Valentine filed a lawsuit in October alleging the song copied their 2016 track, “I Love Your Dress.”

According to New hot hip hop, the songwriters voluntarily removed Drake’s name from the costume on Tuesday. It’s unclear why they dropped the rapper and if a settlement agreement was reached, but Billboard reports that none of the parties’ attorneys immediately returned requests for comment.

“No Guidance” was one of the biggest songs of the summer when it was released on June 8, 2019. Following Breezy’s ninth studio album, “Indigo,” the bop spent 46 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and peaked at number 5 in October 2019. Additionally, the song was nominated for Best R&B Song at the 62nd GRAMMY Awards.

Although Drake is off the hook, Chris is not. Brandon and Timothy move forward with the lawsuit against Breezy and Sony Music Entertainment.

Breezy has quite a few lawsuits attached to his name. As we previously reported, the singer is also being sued for sampling Red Rat’s 1997 dancehall song “Tight Up Skirt” without permission. Greensleeves Publishing Ltd claim Chris “took the main musical feature” of the song and “prominently used it” in “Privacy” without permission. Greensleeves also says they have exclusive music publishing rights to the song in the United States.

Chris hasn’t spoken about the latest lawsuit but remains active on social media as he promotes his upcoming tour, ‘One Of Them Ones’ with Lil Baby. Both will hit the road from July to August. Roommates, we’ll keep you posted on the outcome of the ongoing lawsuits against Chris Brown!
