A singer in the US, Casey Daniel, has come forward claiming that Justin Bieber and Skrillex got the idea for their song Sorry from her song Ring The Bell. She is suing the pair claiming that it has copied the vocal riff.

She posted an explanation on Facebook about the lawsuit saying, “As many of you that follow my career and work have already recognized, Justin Bieber’s song “Sorry” copies the vocal riff prominently featured in my song “Ring the Bell.” The writers, producers, and performers of “Sorry” did not obtain a license for this exploitation of my work, nor did they obtain or seek my permission.
