  • Adam from 1988Casey Dienel, a singer-songwriter who records as White Hinterland, sued Justin Bieber and his producers for plagiarizing one of her cuts. She accused them of lifting without permission the main vocal riff from her 2014 track "Ring The Bell" for this song.

    Dienel stated in a Facebook post that she "poured my blood, sweat, and tears into writing and producing 'Ring the Bell'" and that "it came as a shock to hear my work used and exploited without permission."

    She added: "I offered Bieber's team an opportunity to have a private dialogue about the infringement, but they refused to even acknowledge my claim, despite the obviousness of the sample. Justin Bieber is the world's biggest artist, and I'm sure that he and his team will launch a full attack against me. But, in the end, I was left with no other option. I believe I have an obligation to stand up for my music and art."

    Skrillex responded to the claim by uploading a video showing how he manipulated the a cappella vocals of co-writer Julia Michaels and turned them into the vocals you hear on the song.

    Diplo claimed the incident "must have been an oversight." He told TMZ "I there's more producers... maybe like 10 writers altogether [who worked on the track]. Somebody added it without telling anybody... they should have fact checked it."

    It was announced in December 2017 that Casey Dienel had dropped his legal proceedings against Justin Bieber and Skrillex. There was no word as to whether the case was settled out of court or just dropped with no financial settlement. help yes .Album job
