Somalian singer, poet, and songwriter, Yasminah, filed the suit stating that “Starboy” was modeled after her track “Hooyo,” which was released in 2009. The lawsuit notes that numerous blogs have written about the similarities of the two songs, mentioning the likeness in flow and tempo that follows the rhythm. Additionally, it is interesting to note that the two producers of “Hooyah” already settled for an undisclosed amount but the singer is now suing because she did not receive a cut of the settlement.
