It sounds like Dan + Shay are in for 10,000 headaches.
Dan + Shay and Justin Bieber are named in a lawsuit filed Thursday over copyright infringement of their chart-topping hit "10,000 Hours."
People reported that International Manufacturing Concepts, Melomega music and Sound Gems sued Bieber, Dan + Shay, and others due to similarities in "10,000 Hours" to the 1973 song "The First Time Baby Is A Holiday," written by Palmer Rakes and Frank Fioravanti.
The suit states the men "stole the core portion," which includes the chorus, verse and hook from "The First Time Baby Is A Holiday." "The First Time Baby Is A Holiday" was written in 1973, not registered until 1980, and was recorded in 2014 when it was re-registered because they slightly changed the song title.
"10,000 Hours," which also includes co-writers Jessie Jo Dillon, Jordan Reynolds, and Jason "Poo Bear" Boyd, was released in 2019 and is from Dan + Shay's "Good Things" album.
The suit alleges there are "unmistakable similarities."
Reps for Bieber and Dan + Shay did not immediately respond to People's request for comment.
