Juice WRLD Addresses “Lucid Dreams” Controversy
Juice WRLD Addresses “Lucid Dreams” Controversy: Earlier yesterday, it was reported that iconic English singer and songwriter Sting had allegedly threatened to file a lawsuit against rapper Juice WRLD and producer Nick Mira for drawing off inspiration form one of his earlier singles.
In a series of since-deleted tweets, Mira took to his Twitter account to inform fans that Sting made the decision to pursue legal action despite once stating that “Lucid Dreams” a beautiful interpretation” of his song, “Shape of My Heart.”Dominic Miller, Sting’s guitarist, is said to have declared “Lucid Dreams” as the”most intelligent version” of the guitar riff he’d ever heard.
Mira responded by posting, “Fuck @OfficialSting and his WHOLE team. After taking 85% of Lucid Dreams (for interpolating Shape of My Heart, NOT EVEN sampling) he threatened to take us to court for trying to get any %.” He went on to add, “Sting ALSO flexed stealing our money and said it put his grandkids through college.”
Juice WRLD has since broken his silence on the matter delivering a message filled with gratitude and optimism, proving that he preferred to take a non-confrontational route to address the issue. “Lost millions, made millions,” he wrote. “The song impacted [too] many ppl in a good way for me to be upset over it…there’s more money to be made and I will make it so [love heart emojis].”
