According to Shuman, Keys lifted two lines from his 1962 single ‘Lonely Boy,’ which became an international hit back in 1970 when it was re-recorded by singer Eddie Holman as ‘Hey There Lonely Girl.’
The two lines reportedly appear on Alicia’s ‘Girl on Fire’ single and according to Shuman, are completely uncredited. Shuman is seeking damages, profits and interest from the track, as well as full writing credit.
Despite the lawsuit, the world keeps on spinning for Alicia, who released a beautifully understated video for her latest chart burner ‘Brand New Me.’ The visuals were directed by Diane Martel, who Keys’ credits with “totally bringing the song’s vision to life.”
