Beyonce And Jay Z Are Getting Sued For 'Drunk In Love'

By a Hungarian folk singer.

Beyoncé and Jay Z made what became one of the biggest songs of the year with "Drunk in Love," but now a Hungarian singer is saying they don't deserve all the credit.

In fact, they don't deserve 29 percent of the credit, to be exact.

This comes in a new lawsuit, according to Complex, where Hungarian folk singer Mitsou, born Mónika Juhász Miczura, is alleging that Bey and Hov, as well as Timbaland, who co-produced the song, used vocals from her 1995 song "Bajba, Bajba Pelem." The suit claims that the eery voice we hear singing at the opening of the song, which was included on Bey's 2013 self-titled album, was borrowed and distorted from her.

“Following Mitsou’s stirring featured solo vocal introduction, Mitsou’s voice continues to sing as Beyoncé begins to sing, to evoke foreign eroticism alongside the sexually intense lyrics performed by Beyoncé and Jay Z in ‘Drunk in Love'," the suit says.

The song in question seems to be unavailable anywhere online, but Complex did dig up a song with a similar name, "Bajba, Bajba," performed by the band Ando Drum -- whose vocalist is Mitsou.

TMZ is reporting that in addition to "damages," Mitsou wants a judge to forbid anyone from playing the song.

Best of luck with that last part.
