"Eastside" Singers and Writers Sued for Copyright Infringement

June 10, 2021


Renowned producer, Benny Blanco, probably wanted to attract some attention for his debut hit single, “Eastside”, but perhaps not the kind of attention he has received as of late.

Indie-pop group American XO is claiming that Blanco’s single sounds eerily similar to their own song “Loveless”. They have reportedly launched a copyright infringement suit alleging the two songs share a similar tempo, beat, and note dyads, and that Blanco must have come across their song and copied parts of it for his own.

American XO is also going after heavy-hitters such as Ed Sheeran, Halsey, and Khalid who collaborated with Blanco on Eastside.
