Katy Perry to pay $2.78mn for copying 'Dark Horse'

Aug 02, 2019 11:58 IST

Popstar Katy Perry, her collaborators along with her record label will have to shell out $2.78 million as damages, after a jury in a California court ruled that Perry's 2013 hit song 'Dark Horse' was copied from a Christian rap song. Its a big win for Christian rapper Marcus Gray, as the lawsuit with Perry stretched for 5 long years. The Court has said the money will go to Gray and his two co-writers who worked on the 2009 song 'Joyful Noise'.
