Flourgon used that same line on his 1988 dancehall single "We Run Things", which was a #1 hit in Jamaica.
Flourgon's real name is Michael May.
According to the deejay, born Michael May, Miley stole his lyrics for her 2013 smash hit "We Can't Stop" and that song helped her became a megastar.
The Crown's Claire Foy was paid less than co-star Matt Smith
However, I would like to state for the record that her getting paid less than Matt Smith is bullshit of the highest order. Minter said the disparity "does not stack up" given that Foy's profile matched Smith's by the start of the second series.
Now: "We Run Things", which is a great song, sounds absolutely nothing like "We Can't Stop", which is not.
Even though I want Miley Cyrus to face the consequences of all her questionable antics, especially after she suggested that "hip hop was too vulgar", I can't wholeheartedly say that the two songs bear any resemblance at all.
May said he sought to protect his work past year with the U.S. Copyright Office, and in November won "formal copyright protection" for all musical arrangements in "We Run Things".

The suit claims that Cyrus' song "owes the basis of its chart-topping popularity and its highly-lucrative success to plaintiff May's protected, unique, creative and original content". The suit was filed in a NY court on Tuesday of this week and the legendary Jamaican dancehall deejay is asking for an ambitious sum of US$300 million. May also is aiming to halt performance and distribution of "We Can't Stop", and seeking a trial by jury for the case.
"We Can't Stop", from Cyrus' album "Bangerz", peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in August 2013.
