Lizzo is being sued for sampling, Orlandus Dunning for her song Coconut Oil back in 2016. He is suing her for illegally sampling his audio from a gospel hymn during a mutual relative’s funeral.

Dunning is seeking $750,000 in damages. He claims since it was released on Atlantic Records he has "suffered anguish, embarrassment and outrage.” He also also says he had no idea that his voice would be used to open and close the track.

The lawsuit was originally filled with Wayne Circuit Court at the end of 2020. It has since been moved to the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan last week. 

Atlantic Records, Atlantic subsidiary Nice Life Recording Co. and Warner Music Group Corp are also named.

Does Dunning have a case? Let us know in the comments.
