Cristian Escuti and German Schulz say they cut a track called “Quiero Bailar Contigo” back in 2009. They say they sent it to a Sony exec in 2012 but never heard back.
Fast forward to 2014, when Enrique released “Bailando,” which the songwriters say is a direct rip-off of their tune. They say Sony had partial ownership in the song and they believe there was a musical conspiracy to jack their song.
The two songwriters say the chorus line, melody, lyrics and rhythm were lifted from their song.
There is a lot of money on the line with this song so it’ll be interesting to see how this all ends.
