Looks Like a lawsuit was filed by Flame (Marcus Gray), Lecrae (Lecrae Moore), Da’ T.R.U.T.H. (Emanuel Lambert) and producer Chike Ojukwu, claiming that Katy Perry’s song is a rip-off of the Christian music song “Joyful Noise” from Christian rapper Flame’s album “Our World Redeemed.”

Now, your going to have to be the judge of that. But in my opinion it sounds like there was a string of 3 of the 8 possible notes available, used in a combination, not unlike pretty much every other string of 3 notes used in succession in a thousand other songs. Close but no cigar, ahem, rosary I mean.
What do you think?
