Hungarian Roma sues Beyonce over smash hit
A Hungarian singer from the Roma community is suing Beyonce over the smash hit "Drunk in Love," saying the superstar sampled a folk tune without permission. The song off Beyonce's Grammy-nominated self-titled album begins with an Eastern-sounding a cappella voice that gradually fades out after around 40 seconds as a pop beat, keyboards and Beyonce's voice come in. In a lawsuit filed in a New York court, Monika Juhasz Miczura -- who performs under the name Mitsou -- said that the snippet was a digitally altered version of her 1995 recording of "Bajba, Bajba Pelem," a song that she learned from her grandmother. The suit said that the song was traditional to the Roma, also known as Gypsies, and was "about hopelessness, when one can no longer trust anyone but her own mother and God." By contrast, "Drunk In Love" features Beyonce and her rapper husband Jay-Z as they sing of their marital bliss.
