David Guetta sued by Daniel Baron over plagiarism claim

Daniel Baron, South African producer, has filed a lawsuit against David Guetta, claiming the superstar plagiarized a melody of "Light Headed," his 2018 collaboration with Sia.

Daniel Baron's Children of The Sun was released in 2016 and became the most successful producer's release to date. He felt a "mixture of shock, disbelief, and honor when he heard "Light Headed" for the first time, as he disclosed on South African radio show Breakfast with Martin Bester.


Baron also mentioned that Guetta could possibly hear the song while travelling to Johannesburg in 2017 for Ultra South Africa, as it was enjoying extensive radio play at the time.
"We went about it quietly, we didn't want to put it in the public eye at first," said Baron about the way he and his team tried handling the situation in December 2018. "My team sent him a formal, legal letter just kind of alerting him, and also alerting him that I would like to be credited on the song as well... we sent it to everyone we could think of that could get to him.. and we got nothing back."

David Guetta and his team have yet to issue an official statement concerning Baron's claim at the time of writing.
