A hungarian singer is suing BeyoncéJay Z and Timbaland for allegedly using her voice without permission in the intro to hit single ‘Drunk In Love’.

Mitsou is not only aggreived that her permission was not sought for the sample. The singer was also upset that the trio used her manipulated voice “to evoke foreign eroticism alongside the sexually intense lyrics.”
Mitsou is reportedly seeking damages and has requested that the judge rule ‘Drunk In Love’ cannot be played until her voice is removed.
