'That sounds like my song': Flourgon sues Miley Cyrus”

Miley Cyrus was sued for $300 million by a Jamaican reggae artist who says she stole his song.

According to legal documents first obtained by The Blast, Caribbean songwriter Michael May, who performs under the name Flourgon, has sued the singer in NY federal court.

The suit goes on to claim that "We Can't Stop" came at a time when Cyrus was trying to reinvent herself as "edgy", and that her album Bangerz is filled with traces of urban and Caribbean sound.

The Kingston-based dancehall artist said the 25-year-old borrowed heavily from his 1988 track We Run Things, the Daily Mail reports.

Flourgon's lawyer claims that "We Can't Stop" "owes the basis of its chart-topping popularity to and its highly-lucrative success to plaintiff May's protected, unique, creative and original content".
