Joao Brasil, a Brazilian musician, says that Madonna has stolen his latest single and now there might be a copyright infringement lawsuit on the way.
Joao Brasil claims the chorus of Madonna’s new song Give Me All Your Luvin’, which she performs with Nicki Minaj and M.I.A., is a rip-off of his own tune L.O.V.E. Banana.
His record company bosses and legal team are now considering whether to take court action over the allegation – but Brasil is an adamant Madonna fan and he doesn’t want to sue her.
He tells Brazil’s Folha da Sao Paulo newspaper, “I still don’t understand what happened. I’m a huge fan of hers. If it’s plagiarism, then even better. She is always at the cutting edge of music, so it’s a good sign about what I do… It’s in their hands, they’re looking at how to proceed and what they can do. But personally I don’t want to do anything. The last thing I need in my life is a fight with Madonna.”
