Screen Shot 2014-12-17 at 9.05.34 AMA Hungarian folk singer is accusing magical trio Beyoncé, Jay-Z and Timbaland of ripping her off by illegally using vocals from her song for the hit single “Drunk in Love.”

Monika Miczura Juhasz is convinced that if you listen to her singing “Bajba, Bajba Pelem” you will agree that her vocals were engineered specifically for the purpose of applying them to the song that none of us can still get enough of.

She is asking to be compensated and would like her vocals removed accordingly.

Listening to her version, there might be echoes of similarity, but not enough to warrant her unreasonable demands. The tune is supposedly a traditional folk song that she learned from her grandmother. So that means the true origin is sketchy at best which will make it almost impossible for her to win her case against such formidable talents.

“Drunk in Love” also just received two Grammy nominations and has been a stellar hit for Queen Bey – and something tells us that it will stay that way.

  • Doesn’t surprise me one bit…they’ve been accused of stealing in the past.

    Timbaland samples a lot so I wouldn’t be surprised. Isn’t there an etiquette outline for these industry people by now??

  • Anthony

    If they sampled her, they just need to negotiate a settlement.

      Remember when that Indian singer pulled that Truth Hurts song off the shelves? They had better watch out!

  • It’s being in the right place at the right time and taking advantage of your opportunities

    Guarentee if Ugly azealia stole a black folk singers song and put it in a sample without credit, yall would have the pitchforks out. Beyonce has this problem of taking from people, and not giving proper respect and credit. I’ve heard her doing this before. Anybody that does this, is disgusting. Whether it’s someones song, quotes, words, I don’t care the medium, if you steal it, give credit you nasty vulture. Especially if it profits beyond expectation like Drunk in love. U should be dedicating a 20second speech to this woman every time you sing this song. How dare you Beyonce?
