A lawsuit that accused Dua Lipa of copying “Levitating” has been disregarded through a US court.

Florida reggae crew had claimed that Lipa’s hit “Levitating” used to be a reproduction of one of its songs.

U.S. District Judge Sunshine Sykes stated Artikal Sound System failed to argue that the writers of “Levitating” ever had to get admission to the group’s 2017 track “Live Your Life.”

Sykes gave the team a probability to file a new complaint. She additionally rejected the band’s request to cross its case to New York to be heard with some other infringement lawsuit by using songwriters Sandy Linzer and L. Russell Brown over alleged similarities between “Levitating” and their disco songs “Wiggle and Giggle All Night” and “Don Diablo.”

Artikal Sound System lawyer Stewart Levy stated on Tuesday that the choice was once disappointing and the band is thinking about its subsequent steps. Representatives for Lipa no longer without delay reply to a request for comment.

“Levitating” spent seventy-seven weeks on Billboard’s Hot a hundred U.S. Singles chart, peaking at No. two in 2021.

The complaint, filed in 2022, said it was once “highly unlikely” that “Levitating” used to be made independently “given the diploma of similarity” between the two songs’ melodies, harmonies, and different elements.
